  • Inside Story

In Detail

In 2004 he was formally appointed by the University of York as its new Chancellor. In this role, he is the honorific and ceremonial head of the University, as well as heading the University Development Board. In July 2004 Dyke was awarded honorary doctorates from the University of Sunderland and Middlesex University. Greg reversed the trend at the BBC which took employees away from making programmes and made them into managers. In doing so he reduced administration costs dramatically from 24% of total income to 15%. In 2005, he became chairman of HIT and in 2006, he became chairman of Brentford Football Club.


Mr Dyke is an outstanding business speaker, he speaks in detail about his leadership methods and how at the BBC he successfully improved programming, reduced costs and increased the cultural diversity of the BBC's work force.
