I have extensive experience in fast paced environments, navigating corporate clients and cross managing projects between waterfall and agile teams. I was the first point of contact for recruiting and making investment decisions for Oracle Corp here in the UK startup ecosystem for two years, which identified technology startups/entrepreneurs with fast growth potential. Helping businesses with the best ideas gain market share and generate economic impact and creating the right connections are skills that I have honed.
Previously to this, I have over 15 years experience in Film and TV - Producing and Programme Management - I have quick turnaround documentary/factual experience; have worked with contributors, talent, children, vulnerable people and marginalised community groups extensively.
