innovative , risk taker , media specialist
I am currently work at TalkTalk, where i have repsonsibility for a team of 6 people and have the brilliant opportunity to drive behavioural innovation internally and externally for our staff.
Previous to this I worked at Channel 4 the BBC as well as Optomen Television which you may know for producing Gordon Ramsey food programmes.
I have always wanted to work in the media since I was 13 year olds and strongly believe that pasion and enthusiasm go a long way in this industry. Drive and determination are much more important to me than the qualifications that you hold.
Working in this industry is not always easy it is long hours but the excitement of seeing your creative ideas on the screen can make it all worth while and i have certainly felt that buzz. I love my role!
There are however loads of different roles like law, marketing, advertsing etc which I want to share my experience of with you.
Whether you know where you are headed or want to just pick up brains for expereince then please do not hesitate to ask. No question too stupid!
I have worked in a variety of roles and different organisations which gives me an indepth experience and knowledge which I hope will be useful to you.
I have experience of managing large scale productions and live OB's and understand the importance of the skills needed in this specific area such as organisation, good communication, stakeholder management.
The media is made up of many avenues and most people prefer the creative route this is an under utilised and skills gap in our industry so an important area to consider.
I believe passionately that the media industry can only pgrow and develop with a diversity of voices and perspectives thatis why all work in talent management integrates diversity.
I have experience of running a number of specific programmes to increase diversity and understand the beenfits organisationlly culturally and economically.
I want my organisation and any organisations I work with to be repsrenttaive of UK society.
I want to share my experiences professionally and personally in order to inspire you to want to work or break down the barriers to the media industry. By sharing and hopefully helping you in your thought processes and decision making I can not only help and support you but this will impact on my role at C4 currently and in the future.
