Richard Waghorn - Director of Transformation and Technology at RTÉ

In this episode of MediaRoad SkillBytes we meet RTÉ’s Director of Transformation and Technology and acting Director of Operations and Production Services. Richard Waghorn has enjoyed a varied career - starting in the BBC and commercial radio in the UK. After 3 years as CTO at SABC in South Africa, he is now back in the Northern Hemisphere, working to drive strategic and technological change at RTÉ in Dublin. In a city that hosts many global tech companies, how does Richard attract talent to the public service media organisation? In this episode we’ll learn how Richard has benefited from exposure to different areas of the broadcast industry and how he has developed his leadership skills as a CTO, despite his non-technical background.
