Alice Webb

BBC

Alice Webb is the Director, BBC Children’s, responsible for the UK’s two most popular networks for our youngest audiences, CBeebies and CBBC.

Formerly, Chief Operating Officer (COO), BBC England, Alice was responsible for overseeing all aspects of technology, people, workspace, migration and future ways of working across the BBC sites in Salford, Bristol and Birmingham. Recently she also led a comprehensive review of BBC training which will see the BBC Academy move to a new base in Birmingham later this year; she oversaw the BBC’s end-to-end production capability; and she devised a digital season in Salford for more than 1,000 staff which is now being rolled out across the corporation.

Alice joined the BBC a decade ago from PA Consulting Group where she worked with organisations including Orange, The Cabinet Office, Reuters and Deutsche Bank.  In her first BBC role with Vision Productions (in-house television producers making everything from Strictly Come Dancing to EastEnders) Alice played a central role in reshaping how the world’s biggest programme making operation went about its business.
