“We’re delighted to be a part of Made in the North. Our business was created in a back bedroom out of South Manchester in 1996, and we’ve evolved from a production company into a full service brand experience agency working with some of Britain’s best known companies to create memorable experiences. Storytelling is at the heart of our business, and we’re thrilled to be amongst Manchester’s creatives throughout April,” said a spokesperson for Cascade.

We recently revealed leaders from ITV Studios, Pact, Screen Yorkshire, Talent for Tech, and Liverpool Screen School will be speaking at the afternoon event in MediaCity. 

Alison Gwynn, chief executive at North East Screen, will also be joining a keynote session called Screw The Silos – Bringing The North Together. 

Joining Laura Caveney-Morgan, Executive Editor of Tonight – ITV Studios, this session will address how we can pave a way forward for regions across the North to act as ‘one voice’ to collaborate, and shout more about the work and talent from the region.

As the leader at North East Screen, Gwynn has over 25 years of experience in the culture and creative industry from providing marketing leadership at the Centre for Life to being instrumental in the planning and development of Seven Stories, the National Centre for Children’s Books.
