Since launching late last year, Foxtel-backed Kayo has quickly established itself as the benchmark in the sports streaming space, rolling out a string of innovative consumer marketing plays and pioneering new digital broadcast offerings.

Previously CMO at BT Financial Group and director of marketing and communications at Foxtel, Loder is also a long-term board member of Surfing Australia and is uniquely-placed to discuss the future of digital and sport.

She will join senior executives from the NRL and the World Surf League on the 'Game Changers' panel. Moderated by Havas Sport & Entertainment general manager Francis Coady, the session will explore how brands and rights-holders are adapting to the rapidly-changing media space and fan engagement in the digital age.
