Fresh One managing director Roy Ackerman (pictured) will take to the stage as key speaker at the Australian International Documentary Conference (AIDC) in March.

Since joining the Jamie Oliver-helmed UK prodcom – which is behind formats such as Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution and Jamie’s Kitchen – in 2009, Ackerman has led an expansion into new genres and platforms.

As previously reported, All3Media America chairman Stephen Lambert will be keynote speaker at the Adelaide event.

Fresh One has also partnered with conference producers to launch the ACCESS@AIDC mentorship program, which will be offered during the conference from March 4-7. An outstanding participant will be selected to join Fresh One’s London office for a four-week internship, where they will be mentored by Ackerman.

“All of us with a job in the industry needed a break and a mentor,” said Ackerman in a statement. “Jamie Oliver and the company know that the future of the company will be based on the young people we employ and, as long as the applicants aren’t too rude about the English cricket team, we can promise them a big welcome.”
