The ABC and SBS will also join commercial radio experts on two panels discussing the role of radio news
Janine Allis, founder of Boost Juice Bars, Michael Anderson, CEO of MediaWorks and Anthony Everard, head of the Big Bash League, have joined the speaker lineup at the National Radio Conference, Commercial Radio Australia announced this week.
The three business leaders will appear on a CEO panel to discuss leadership and the factors that have driven their extraordinary success.
Allis is a self-made entrepreneur who has achieved $2 billion in global sales through her juice and smoothie empire and has won numerous awards. She was the first female director on the board of the Hawthorn Football Club and is a mentor on Channel Ten’s Shark Tank.
Anderson was appointed CEO of New Zealand’s biggest TV and radio broadcaster in September. Prior to this he was chairman of oOh!media and OzTAM, a non-executive director of Fairfax Media and spent seven years as chief executive officer of Austereo (now Southern Cross Austereo).
Everard has developed Cricket Australia’s Big Bash League into Australia’s fastest growing domestic sports league, with average match attendances second only to AFL and national television ratings above one million per match.
The ABC and SBS will also join commercial radio experts on two panels discussing the role of radio news in the digital era and diversity in broadcasting.
Media agencies represented by Peita Pacey and Amanda Buckley from Carat, Rebecca Ho from Starcom and Zoe May from Maximus Communications Australia will head up a panel of media buyers and strategists to talk about what radio can do to increase its share of advertising revenue.
