In five days from now, a moment, an idea that captures an essence of modern Britain will crystallise.

What emerged as a day dream, a “what if” from last summer then matured into a profound thought. On the 7th of December, the continuum of that dream should spread its wings and fly.

On the 7th we will no longer have any claim to the dream’s narrative. It will be yours to decide upon a point of entry, how to weave its explicit and implicit stories into your episodic memory, and distil its enduring legacy.

On the 7th Britain’s leading weavers of stories, whose presence aligns within that glowing televisual frame parked in your personal space, will gather in one unified space — together.

What unites them is their extraordinariness. What they share is a a creative passion towards story telling and a resilience to plough their chosen path. What they illustrate is a perceptible trajectory of change’s journey and a viable destination.

It’s a start, not an end point. A proof of concept. We gather all the time, to share our love, our quest for knowledge, and demonstrate a need to understand others. And this gathering, the TVC Leader’s List shares these characteristics, yet in a way that makes a statement.

I‘ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel, said Maya Angelou.

On the 7th, we like to think you won’t forget how you felt either. Welcome to the TVC Leaders’ List.
