Exceptional leaders at ThinkFM

28-02-13 9:6 BIFM

Alongside the 24 'hub' sessions at the ThinkFM conference, we have two inspirational leaders opening and closing the conference: Jim Lawless and Chris Kane respectively.

Jim Lawless, inspirational speaker and author

Jim is CEO of Taming Tigers, and one of the world's leading inspirational speakers and author of 'Taming
Tigers'. He is the only authority on personal development, leadership and change to have risked his life to prove that his theories deliver solid results.

In 2010, to test Taming Tigers theories around mental toughness, he became Britain’s Deepest Freediver. In 2003, in response to an audience challenge, he proved his rules by becoming a jockey in 12 months. At the outset he was 3 stone too heavy and could not ride a horse.

Chris Kane, CEO BBC Commercial Projects

Chris will be closing ThinkFM, speaking during the early-evening drinks reception, giving a rare and fascinating insight into managing facilities at the BBC, one of the world's largest broadcasters.
Under his leadership, the BBC has delivered a £2bn property transformation to support the move to digital production, modernising 40% of the entire estate and delivering 2 million square feet of highly flexible new office and production space.  A key element of this is the BBC’s new home in MediaCityUK.

In 2012 he masterminded the £200m sale of the BBC’s 1m sq ft Television Centre. Read Chris's full biography.
