Life-long learning and professional development for practitioners within the creative sector and education features regularly within my work.
I ran “Making It”, a year long professional development programme of events, mentoring and talks for artists and makers for Medway Council and have devised training programmes for BBC work experience teams, teachers and artists in schools, galleries and other settings.
I organised several “Meet the Professionals” events for the BBC for young people to connect with inspiring industry pros including Harry Potter SFX specialists, fashion designers, film makers and Nintendo game designers.
I have been a speaker at several conferences and training events and regularly facilitate workshops and discussion groups.
I have mentored new employees in event and programme management and have organised international exchange programmes including one involving twelve artists from the UK and Berlin.
