Shift North 2017 live blog

Read live coverage of Shift North 2017 from the People's History Museum in Manchester by Newsworks' Rupert Medler.


Rupert Medler, insight executive, Newsworks

Rupert found his way to Newsworks via a slightly unorthodox route, having started some gardening work in his native Suffolk post-graduation. As he puts it: “Building up a reputation for weeding patios with a fiery vigour and honing my inexorable passion for lawn-mowing”. One garden belonged to Newsworks’ then CEO Rufus Olins and, having got Rufus to agree to a tea and chat about newsbrands, Rupert secured an internship at Newsworks. He took on the role of insight executive in October 2016 and works on research projects from briefing through to presentations and events.
