Joining us for episode 2 of Executives Unpacked is Simon Farnsworth.
Since starting his career at IMG, Simon has spent most of his working life in the broadcast industry. Moving to Australia and working at Globecast, he played a major role in them being acquired by Telstra.
Moving back to the UK in 2016, he joined Discovery to head their Olympic Technical Distribution team, latterly progressing to the role of CTO for Broadcast Technology & Operations.
Having been responsible for Discovery’s delivery of the 2020 summer Olympic games and most recently the 2022 winter Games, Simon recently left Discovery, and will take up his new role as CTO of NewsUK this September. At neuco, we’re also incredibly lucky to have him as our Non-Executive Director.
In this episode we find out some advice that Simon wishes he’d been told earlier, who had the biggest influence on him, the best piece of advice he’s been given and more.
