Geordie Greig To Deliver Satchwell Lecture 2020

Geordie Greig, editor of the Daily Mail, will deliver the third annual Society of Editors Satchwell Lecture in London in May.

Greig was appointed as editor of Mail Newspapers in September 2018. He moved from The Mail on Sunday where he had been editor since April 2012.

The Satchwell Lecture takes place at Stationers’ Hall on 11 May  and is free to attend. 

Ian Murray, Society of Editors executive director, said: “The Society of Editors Satchwell Lecture has quickly grown a reputation for being a must-attend event in the media calendar and this year will prove no exception.

“We are greatly honoured to have Geordie Greig as our speaker, one of the most influential forces in the UK media today.”

The event will start at 7pm with a reception, followed at 7.30pm by the lecture and a question and answers session with time for networking to follow. The evening will end at 9pm.

The Satchwell Lecture is named for former Society of Editors executive director Bob Satchwell who stepped down from his role in March 2017 due to a life-changing illness.

Last year’s lecture was delivered by The Times editor John Witherow with the inaugural Satchwell Lecture delivered by BBC Director General Lord Tony Hall in 2018.

Although there is no charge for the event, donations towards the Journalists’ Charity will be encouraged.

Spaces are limited and those wishing to register should email or call 01223 304080.
