Iram Ansari: “Greater diversity in your organisation and your content”
Great content will always be multicultural says Iram Amsari, NRA (Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation), emphatically.

Some of her advice was not to get in your own way, and break old patterns. She involved the audience by assigning simple tasks that led to thinking about attitude towards work and self-promotion.
