At Videoscape Europe next month, Richard Davidson-Houston, Head of All 4 at Channel 4 Television, will provide his expert opinion on what you must get right, and what leaders get wrong, in VOD. You can check out the full event agenda and speakers here.

In his 20-minute presentation, Davidson-Houston will discuss:

  • The leadership principles that underpin VOD success, including the five things you must get right
  • Thinking about people, teams, management buy-in, the organisation and how you get things done in VOD
  • The five things media leaders get wrong in VOD – in order according to the damage they inflict.

Videoscape Europe is the strategy event for D2C, SVOD, AVOD and vPayTV and focuses on delivering profitable growth in premium digital video. Richard is speaking in the session: ‘Earning more time and revenue from consumers’.

Davidson-Houston became Head of Channel 4 Online in 2010 and became Head of All 4 in 2015. Under his leadership, All 4 has evolved from a catch-up offering for Channel 4 programmes to a service that offers a mix of live TV, catch-up, box sets and archive content.

All 4 now hosts content from partners such as Adult Swim and Vice, with Channel 4 becoming one of the first broadcasters anywhere to host third-party content in its digital service. All 4 is also home to Walter Presents, the overseas drama VOD brand that has been successfully exported to multiple territories. Davidson-Houston is therefore one of the most experienced broadcaster VOD leaders on earth.
