Let's Do The Right Thing

Jason Spencer

Season 5, Ep. 5

In the first of the three interviews with ITV management, we speak to Business Development Director, Jason Spencer.

He's from the south, but his spirit is in Manchester, he's a business leader that never stops thinking about the communities he's serving, and he has a huge appetite for innovation, alongside good old-fashioned event television. Presented by our very own Dickie Davies, Adam Hopkinson.
