What will you be speaking about at the moevement conference?
I will be speaking about taking the LEAP in my career 10 years ago. Leaving a stable job in the recruitment industry to follow for my passion and dream to work in broadcast media. I will describe steps, sacrifices, challenges and triumphs I have experienced along the way.
Where did your personal inspiration, entrepreneurial/leadership purpose come from – what shaped your views?
I have created an acronym based on my experience which outlines what has shaped my journey. Ultimately I was able to tune into my inner voice and tap into what has become a career that I love. I have discovered a deeper purpose and motivation along the way as I have navigated my way through an industry that historically has not been that accommodating for people that look like me.
What’s the purpose of your organisation?
As a traditional TV presenter, I am all about communication and entertainment. However, I now also stand for representation and visibility within the TV landscape. My purpose is to be a great TV presenter while demonstrating that diversity and inclusion shouldn’t be a scary or challenging afterthought. Along the way I hope that I will get to steer some entertaining, important and relatable conversations.
How did you become part of the moe community?
I was welcomed into the MOE community following an event in which I interviewed Darren Robson. We kept in touch and I was able to share some of my experiences with him. A few months later I was invited to host the first MOE conference alongside MOE member Jeffery Wotherspoon.
What does the moevement conference mean to you?
It is a fantastic opportunity to connect with like-minded individuals and to be inspired by their journeys and experiences.
