Ben forder named to provoke media's 2021 innovator 25 EMEA list 

Ben Forder, Head of Video at That Lot, Weber Shandwick’s specialist social media agency, has been named to the seventh PRovoke Media Innovator 25 EMEA list, an annual initiative that features “remarkable innovators who are addressing the industry’s challenges with ingenuity and creativity to make meaningful (and hopefully lasting) change at time when it’s needed more than ever.”

From his early days in Australia as a post-production supervisor and director of photography, Ben has strived to be at the forefront of production innovation. A self-confessed film and television fanatic, his 15 years’ experience spans traditional broadcast and digital and social, through to the new, advanced virtual production landscape. Pivoting at the beginning of the pandemic to a raft of new remote recording and real-time broadcast methods and processes, Ben’s primary focus is to enable clients to present with confidence and engage fully with audiences, from any location.


When asked for the advice he would give to the PR industry around embracing innovation, he responded, “Don’t be afraid to take risks! Move faster and be more agile – working together with in-house teams enables constant upskilling and inspiration.”
