Jay Hunt became chief creative officer of Channel 4 in January 2011 from her position as controller at BBC One. Jay’s commissions during this time include critically acclaimed shows such as Sherlock, Luther and Mrs. Brown’s Boys.

Under her leadership, Channel 4 has twice been named Channel of the Year and has won more awards than at any time in the channel’s history. Her commissions include such unscripted and factual entertainment hits as Gogglebox, The Island, Hunted, Benefits Street, First Dates, Child Genius and The Secret Life of 4 Year Olds; and scripted hits such as Humans and Catastrophe.

In her keynote presentation, "The F Word," Hunt will discuss how taking risks and facing failure head-on can often result in great successes.
