Meet The Speakers: Simon Dickson, Label 1

We are fast approaching our next TV Networking event, taking place on Thursday 8th February at Covent Garden’s Hospital Club. For the February Edition we’re delighted to be hosting Label 1 Co-Founder and Creative Director, Simon Dickson.

Simon Dickson
Widely regarded as one of the industry’s most prominent and captivating creative thinkers, Dickinson has a reputation for approaching mainstream factual subjects from a unique perspective.

BAFTA-nominated for Discovery/Channel 4’s The Plane Crash, his credits include titles such as Bear Grylls’ Wild Weekends, along with multi-camera ‘rig’ shows One Born Every Minute and The Hotel, both of which he commissioned when he was head documentaries at Channel 4.

A Former MD of Dragonfly Film & Television Productions, Simon co-created of 24 Hours in A&E and in 2015 led the revamp of First Dates. Most recently, he was Executive Producer for BBC Two’s Hospital.

The Hospital
Called “extraordinary” by the Times and “brilliant and brave” by the New Statesman, Hospital explores London’s Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust.

Edited and broadcast just a few weeks after filming was completed, the documentary averaged around 2.5 million viewers a week. The series comes across as unique and compelling by challenging what is traditionally the domain of news and current affairs, and facing themes such as the NHS crisis, bed shortages, health tourism, when these subjects are more discussed than ever.

We now have limited places remaining for this event. Visit our events pages to book your free place!
