• Crafting the theme of each event and writing the script to transform unwitting guests into characters. Embracing my inner Agatha Christie to write clues including speeches, drawings and film clips. Writing the copy for our website (https://www.twodolphins.co.uk/), drafting emails to brands and publications to garner support and market our event.
• Worked on The Apprentice Series 14, UKTV channels Really, Drama, Gold, Cactus TV’s National Book Awards (press liaison at the event and securing listings coverage ahead of airing on ITV) and MCM Comic Con (London & Birmingham events) • Crafted campaign summaries to highlight all coverage secured for a campaign, wrote coverage reports on excel containing all the nitty gritty, and wrote press releases. • ‘Selling in’ a range of campaigns – which involved pitching down the phone – securing coverage in national newspapers, online websites and radio • Research into creative briefs and new business pitches for Samsung, Pimm’s and UKTV.
Work Experience with the Token Events team was invaluable. It included proof reading posters and press releases for Token's comedy festival ‘Yak’, which exercised attention to detail and accuracy. I helped in the creating of different events pages, on relevant ticket websites, for Token's clients' stand-up comedy shows all over Australia. At Token I had to be aware of and across the clients’ social media representation, and also spent time researching for online talent.
Interning at Kalel productions for 3 weeks gave me an incredible insight into the whole process of producing a TV programme. While helping the team with casting, I spent the majority of my time in research and development, whilst keeping up to date on the latest trends on online platforms, a topic Kalel specialise in.
• Wrote sketches for shows throughout the year, including for an hour long women’s show, and took our Sketch Comedy Show to Edinburgh Fringe 2017 – my 9th trip to Edinburgh.
Working as part of the Front of House team for Assembly Festival Ltd at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2015 and 2016 was busy and brilliant. The role included immaculate attention to detail and organisation, in having a hand in the setting up for, and the closing down after, a show. It required perfect customer service, in being the face of, and so directly influencing how the public saw and experienced, Assembly. Essentially, the role involved communication - within the FOH teams, between the FOH and stage management teams, with the acts, and audiences - which is a skill I have learnt, and will carry with me.
