Ruth Berry, Managing Director Global Distribution of ITV Studios, oversees ITV Studios’ production companies across Europe and Australia, its growing US scripted business and ITV Studios international distribution arm, ITV Studios Global Entertainment, which distributes over 45,000 hours of prestigious content to 3,000 broadcasters around the world.

During a keynote titled “The evolution of television - shaping culture around the world”, on Wednesday 17 October, Ruth Berry will discuss the way that content can connect with audiences on a deeper level - from Love Island (the world's most tweeted about reality show ever) which has defied the trend for young adult audiences moving away from linear television, to dramas like Noughts + Crosses, which offers a thought-provoking lens on racism and prejudice, and World on Fire, which tells the story of the ordinary families caught up in events which were not of their making during World War Two. In this session Ruth will look at what it takes to move hearts and minds and why it matters.
