Don’t be late for Ben Frow’s controller session, he’s fanatical about punctuality. And he’s got a lot of ground to cover. Over the last year, his was the only commercial PSB channel to grow share across all key audiences. In that context, he won’t be hiding his disgruntlement at not being shortlisted for the GEITF Channel of the Year. But never one to look back, Ben’s got big plans for the future. He’ll tell us how his traffic light commissioning system is going to help make C5 the destination channel for great ideas.

He’ll also reveal the size of his chequebook, why he’s no longer obsessed with ratings and how an industry rival has turned into a surprise BFF. And we will learn how an imminent Viacom-led rebrand must equip C5 for lots of things – including life after Ben.
