/ November 11th 2019 / Ellie Mason

Our 2019 Media Business Course came to a close last week with each syndicate presenting their pitch on Friday and the winners announced on Saturday.

Our MBC winners this year were Syndicate 8, made up of future industry stars from Conde Nast, G+J iMS, Initiative, ITV, Ocean Outdoor, OMD, Sky Media, Snap Inc. and Vizeum. What a brilliant pitch they presented!

A huge congratulations goes to not only Syndicate 8 but also everyone who attended the course, and a massive thank you to all involved including our fantastic speakers, judges and committee – we couldn’t have done it without you!

We hope everyone had a fantastic time and came away feeling inspired and with some amazing memories. You can check out some of the photographs from Friday & Saturday at our 2019 Media Business Course below… Until next time!
