Warner Bros Interactiveâ??s experienced development exec to speak at the IGDA Leadership Forum

The upcoming IGDA Leadership Forum will see a keynote session from Samantha Ryan, the SnrVP of development and production at Warner Bros Interactive.

Following its call for speakers back in March, the IGDA has announced speaker sessions from the likes of Chris Satchell, a former general manager at Microsoft’s XNA group.

At Warner Bros Interactive, Ryan manages the development and production teams responsible for the entire company’s videogame output. Despite her promotion, she remains CEO of Monolith; a Warner Bros-owned developer responsible for titles such as F.E.A.R. and Alien vs. Predator 2.

Ryan will hold a keynote session at the third annual IGDA Leadership Forum, a conference which focuses on advancing the state of the art in game production and management.

The event comes in three tracks – Personal, Project, and Studio – that encompass a broad range of leadership topics. The sessions will run in parallel tracks and will consist of a mix of lectures, panels, and interactive workshop sessions.
