Telling untold stories - Fireside chat with Raphael Rowe

For the first &more event of 2024, we are once again welcoming our members to the MRS Annual conference closing keynote session.

Join MRS Chair Sinead Jefferies (SVP for Customer Transformation at Zappi) to hear TV presenter, broadcaster and investigative journalist Raphael Rowe share his incredible story, discuss social injustices and demonstrate how the power of qualitative research and captivating storytelling transforms outcomes for people with no platform.

Raphael breaks the mould in serious journalism. After spending 12 years in prison for a murder he didn’t commit, he became the first journalist from a mixed ethnic background with dreadlocks and a prison background, to report for the BBCs Radio 4 flagship Today programme before moving to TV journalism. Raphael is best known for his Netflix show, Inside the World's Toughest Prisons – the 2nd most watched factual programme on Netflix in 2023. His investigative journalism and hard-hitting documentaries for Panorama, BBC2, BBC3 and Netflix have uncovered miscarriages of justice and shone a light on under-served and diverse populations.

After the keynote, you are welcome to attend the Conference closing drinks reception at the conference venue.

We would be delighted to welcome &more members to this inspiring keynote session. To book, please click the orange ‘Book Now’ button at the top left.
