The Industry Day, which gathers people from across the industry, is a great opportunity to meet and network with industry colleagues and have the opportunity to hear from expert speakers on issues relating to the industry. This year is no exception, and the BTHA is delighted to unveil two unrivalled keynote speakers for this year’s event.

Dylan Collins, CEO of SuperAwesome, will provide an insight to current technology trends, platforms and compliance issues facing the industry. SuperAwesome’s technology and products power kid-safe advertising, parent-portals and COPPA compliance for hundreds of brands and agencies around the world.

Following this will be a presentation from the world’s first British astronaut Helen Sharman OBE. A superb speaker, Helen enthuses her audience about Space, STEM and the wonders of science. She describes the meticulous training and preparation, learning Russian, the launch and landing, how weightlessness feels, her science experiments, the team spirit, and adjusting to life back on Earth. Awarded the OBE in 1993, Helen Sharman is a full-time scientist, a pioneer, and an inspiring role model for people of all ages.

There will be an opportunity for Q&A from the audience following both Dylan and Helen’s presentations.

The Industry Day will conclude with the presentation of a prestigious BTHA Lifetime Achievement Award to Roger Dyson. A celebratory three-course lunch in Great Fosters’s atmospheric Tithe Barn will follow the awards presentations.
