Each of the speakers gave their in-depth views on how the pandemic has impacted on their business and day-to-day lives, how they’re tackling the situation and what the future of broadcasting could look like.

As well as questions from the chair, viewers streaming the live webinar broadcast were able to ask questions directly to the panel.

BT Media & Broadcast also ran a number of polls during the discussion, which viewers could take part in during the debate.

The company also distributed a five-page Ebook to those who joined in on the discussion. This is available by clicking the image below.
