I initially volunteered for TedxLeicester at college when I was interested into doing video work.
I went into the experience with an open mindset and met Siddhi, the then Director and Alan, the then License Holder. When I told them I wanted to go into video production, they introduced me to Dan Lamoon, a Film-maker who had already been in the business for a while. Together, we created a series of advertisements that helped drive ticket sales to the 2016 event Every Journey Matters.
Little did I know that same Film-maker would then become my employer.
That one event catapulted me into working as the Technical and Creative Director for TEDxLeicester, working alongside Siddhi and a small team to help deliver action-packed feature events with an assortment of filmed content to boot.
This event was designed to explore the variety of fascinating stories that make up the fabric of Leicester’s rich and diverse heritage.
Salons consisted of independent forum-like events designed to be more intimate, hosted events to get an interesting debate started so as to involve a variety of people.
This event was a showcase of the successes of leading women in industry. We had an amazing turnout with a good selection of powerful speakers.
