The Royal Television Society North East and the Border and University of Sunderland invite you to Meet Seetha Kumar – chief executive of Screenskills.

Drinks reception followed by a talk and Q&A with Seetha who is responsible for the strategic direction and overall leadership of ScreenSkills' work. ScreenSkills is the industry-led skills body for the UK's screen-based creative industries - animation, film, games, television including children's TV and high-end drama, VFX and immersive technology. The organisation – formerly Creative Skillset – works to ensure that UK screen has access now, and in the future, to the skills and talent needed for continued success.

Seetha’s priority is to expand ScreenSkills' engagement with industry – particularly outside London.

Her earlier career was spent with Channel 4 and the BBC where she was controller of BBC Online which involved the launch of BBC HD.
