Sir Peter Bazalgette is this year's guest speaker at The Printing Charity's Annual Luncheon on Thursday 14 November at Stationers' Hall, London.

A leading figure in the media and creative arts, he is non-executive Chair of ITV and chairs LoveCrafts, an online retailer. He led an independent review into the UK's creative industries as part of the Government's Industrial Strategy. He is a non-executive board member of UK Research and Innovation (UKRI), serves on the Advisory Boards of BBH and YouGov plc, and is currently Chair of the Baillie Gifford Non-Fiction Book Prize Trustees and President of the Crossness Engines Trust.

From 2013 until 2017 he was Chair of Arts Council England. He was also a non-executive director of DCMS, YouGov plc, President of the Royal Television Society, and Chief Creative Officer of Endemol where he personally devised several internationally successful formats such as Ready Steady Cook and Changing Rooms.

Sir Peter's book about the business of TV formats, Billion Dollar Game (Time Warner), came out in 2005, and in 2017 he published The Empathy Instinct (John Murray).

Neil Lovell, The Printing Charity's Chief Executive, says: "Sir Peter is incredibly engaging and we are looking forward to hearing his highlights from a stellar career in television, the creative arts, and as an author. He knows all too well how sectors need to adapt to change so I think we will gain some great insights, too."
