How the media can help your food business
To what extent does the power of the media influence how and what we eat? And armed with this knowledge, how can it be used to benefit your food business or career? By tapping into their experiences of either working within the media or observing its machinations, our expert panel will offer practical guidance to anyone seeking to exploit the possibilities of mass communication as they make their way in the food world.
Milly Kenny-Ryder: The writer, singer and blogger behind the online food, culture and fashion magazine Thoroughly Modern Milly. Named one of the Evening Standard’s top 10 food influencers on Instagram.
Pete Lawrence: A major influence on the food landscape of British television while head of features at the BBC, working with the likes of Nigel Slater, The Hairy Bikers, Nigella Lawson, Lorraine Pascale and Rachel Khoo.
Jane Levi: Writer and academic who specialises in the history of food and utopianism with insight into how, when and why the media started to influence our eating habits.
Alana Spencer: Winner of the 2016 series of The Apprentice and founder of Ridiculously Rich by Alana, a bakery brand that has grown under the spotlight of the media.

The event takes place in the main trading space of Three Crown Square. Come to the art deco entrance on Borough High Street.
Each debate lasts for around an hour, including plenty of time set aside at the end for questions and comments from the audience. The debate will continue on Twitter #BoroughTalks.
After the Talks, ticketholders are invited to enjoy a superb spread of food and drink from Borough Market’s traders, all included in the price of a ticket, mingle with panellists and purchase a selection of relevant books and merchandise.
Gates open at 6.45pm.
