About me: I have worked as an Operations/Production Manager for over 25 years covering a wide range of programming. More recently my work has led me more into Operations and Executive Assistant roles. I enjoy the aspects of recruitment and staff management, working with IT and also setting up new work stations for new arrivals. I have also worked on 2 office moves, 1 being for over 300 staff and the other for approx. 20 staff. I am happy working in large or smaller organisations and also happy with either 1:1 working relationships or working for more Directors and Executives. I have also worked for a digital sports production company. This gave me a great insight into new media, syndication and the benefits of working with a client to improve their profile on Social Media. I also have experience in reformatting videos from TV programme to publishing on social media.
I have experience in venue management and also wide experience in OB Management having worked on many sporting OB’s from small to multi camera at major venues. I have also attended many site visits and site meetings to ensure that all parts of the production set up are clear with their involvement in the event.
I also have experience in studio shoots, highlights programming for major events and documentary programming.
My experience also includes working on digital short form/clips for internet release.
As a Production Manager I have extensive experience of budgeting and reconciling. I also have Health and Safety training together with first aid training. I am used to negotiating with sponsors re branding and setting up of mixed zones to suit both athletes, media and sponsors alike. I am also used to working with media on events and ensuring that media comply with broadcast guidelines set out by Host Broadcaster.
I consider myself highly motivated, well organised and experienced in a wide range of television disciplines, and now combining them with new media requirements, both worldwide and in the UK.
One of my main strengths is working closely with clients – initially to discuss projects and its viability together with our sales team. Budgeting presentation and continuing discussions throughout the project through to client delivery and further discussions for future business.
A strong team player with good interpersonal skills, thriving on a challenge.

25 years experience.
