We’re currently scouring the world to bring you the best speakers on everything from studio design and transmission to research and development and a few surprises on the way.

Know someone we should have on the Radio TechCon 2022 stage? Please let us know!

We’re especially keen to feature speakers from backgrounds underrepresented in broadcast engineering.

Our team of producers helps our speakers at every step of the way, and we’re especially proud that we have been the first speaking gig for many of our expert guests – not that you would ever guess!


Production Team

Ann Charles – Radio Production & Technology Consultant – Ann Charles Media / Director, TBC Media Ltd.

Ann Charles

Ann is a radio producer-turned broadcast engineer who specialises in all things studios and workflow. Equally happy making programmes as running broadcast infrastructure projects, her career so far has included 12 years at the BBC, teaching journalism in New Zealand and training broadcast engineers and producers in South Sudan. She also travels the world as the workflow consultant for Broadcast Bionics. After several years as a volunteer, she formed TBC Media Ltd. with two friends to take over the running of Radio TechCon in 2016. Outside of work, Ann can be found fitting parents with baby slings, drinking gin, and eating chocolate (not necessarily all at once.)

Aradhna Tayal – Project Manager, Producer and Consultant – Clockhouse Media / Director, TBC Media Ltd.

Aradhna Tayal

Aradhna subsequently trained engineers and technical staff on new studios, systems and workflows in the purpose built broadcasting centres at Media City UK, Salford and New Broadcasting House, London. She led a number of large-scale projects, including the launch of national television channels for the BBC’s coverage of the 2014 Commonwealth Games, and led the technology strategy for BBC Archives, managing their project portfolio.
