The ah! story
I am Leicester, UK, born and bred, and after finishing college, I spent several years working in the civil service, where I realised the importance of education. So I burnt the midnight oil at night school to retake my A-Levels whilst working and earned a place on an elite BA Hons course studying Media, Culture and Society where Cultural Studies was born in the UK Civil Rights movement of the 1960s. I have always been captivated by the media and the power of great messaging. After graduating, ITV offered me an internship at their iconic London Studios on the London Southbank, where I started my decade long career in TV production. Funny to think that I had pictured shooting cutting-edge documentaries but instead found myself in the glitz and glamour of Saturday night TV, working on big audience entertainment shows like Blind Date, Big Brother and Comic Relief; I embraced the opportunity with both hands, often pinching myself. After working behind the camera, starting as a production secretary progressing to a producer for the BBC, Sky, ITV, Channel 4 and Channel 5, I began to crave a need to focus my creative skills in other ways and marketing ticked all the right boxes. My marketing debut was as a Projects, Communications and Marketing Manager in a high achieving secondary school in one of Londons most disadvantaged borough's Newham. I experienced some of the most rewarding moments of my working life with those young people. When I was made redundant, it rocked my world, but on the flip side, it allowed me to set up my marketing consultancy, and I have never looked back.
