The panel covered topics which reflected the theme of CMC 2017 – are we open for business, open to ideas, open to each other and how are we serving the audience in difficult times? Delegate questions ranged from the implications of Brexit to the effectiveness of the BBC’s recently announced additional funding for children’s and youth services.
