Q: What can attendees expect to see from TRIC this year? Jane Ostler: We are holding three events in 2020: The TRIC Awards on 10 March, TRIC Summer Drinks Evening for the handing over of the Presidency, and the TRIC Awards Christmas Lunch in December. TRIC events are always high profi le, lively and fun and are a brilliant way to meet our nation’s favourite celebrities and network with industry people. This year we celebrate 51 years of the TRIC Awards – it’s our key event which starts with a star-studded drinks reception in an beautiful venue, a three- course lunch,

entertainment and the

Awards themselves. It’s a great way to impress and entertain clients or reward your teams with an exciting day out.

Q: You’re new to the position of Chair at TRIC, how’s it been going so far? JO: I took over from the wonderful Richard Lindsay-Davies and I’m getting stuck in with our hard-working committee

and liaising with Lorraine Kelly, who is an amazing force of nature – I’m looking forward to working with her to continue to raise the profi le of TRIC. There is a huge amount that goes on behind the scenes; I work closely with our TRIC Director, Alexia Sciplino, on event organisation, securing sponsors, getting the voting up and running, organising the raffl e, monitoring fi nances, branding and the website etc. Most importantly, we want to maximise attendance as we give donations each year to our chosen charities. This year, Lorraine has nominated Help For He roes and I have nominated Combat Stress. They both do astonishing and transformational work.

TRIC is a wonderful and dynamic

organisation. Our aims are to continue to build the TRIC brand and widen our audience reach. We are also aiming for more diversity and inclusion in the Club, and of course more brilliant events.

Q: What is your main day-to-day role at Kantar? JO: Kantar is a global data and insights company and I’m the Global Head of Media Effectiveness at Kantar: in short, we evaluate the impact of campaigns for advertisers, publishers and media agencies. It’s a busy job, including overseeing commercial growth, product management and thought leadership.

I’ve also recently edited the 2020 Media Trends & Predictions, which looks at audio, podcasts and streaming trends, to name but a few.

Q: How do you see your work there merging with your work at TRIC? JO: In the past I’ve worked in marketing the digital TV switchover and in digital radio, so I have worked very closely with a range of industry players, including manufacturers and retailers, as well as TV and radio broadcasters.

I was once praised at an aerial installers

conference for having ‘a surprising amount of technical knowledge about transmitters’! My role at Kantar means I now work with a lot of the digital players, and of course Kantar has been kind enough to let me spend some of my time supporting TRIC, so I hope to make the most of it!
