MountainRunner is in the United Kingdom for the Wilton Park conference “Public Diplomacy: Moving from Policy to Practice?” As the event is under Chatham House Rule, I will not tweet or blog about it. I’m looking forward to the next several days, which will include presentations and discussions with: Jeremy Browne, Minister of State, UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office; Judith McHale, Under Secretary of State for Public Diplomacy and Public Affairs; Stefanie Babst, Deputy Assistant Secretary General, Public Diplomacy Division, NATO; Jimmy Leach, Head, Digital Diplomacy, UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office; Peter Horrocks, Director, BBC Global News; Jan Melissen, Head, Clingendael Diplomatic Studies Programme (CDSP), Netherlands Institute of International Relations; Simon Anholt, and others. See the program here.
I considered renaming the blog “Fell Runner” while in the UK, but no…

Think you’ll find it is Horrocks. We’re curious to see the direction Peter will take WS Radio. If a comment in theUK satirical magazine Private Eye can be believed, the strategy is to do even more news and dump the softer features for WS English.
I know you can’t divulge the details,but did the conference meet your expectations?
Ridiculously pleased by how high up the bill I am…
