Meet the Talent Manager with ITV Loves Talent: researchers and APs
Due to popular demand the ITV Loves Talent ScreenSkills CV clinics are back, but in a new format!
In these Meet the Talent Manager monthly sessions, Talent Managers from all over the industry will come together with ITV Loves Talent to meet with freelancers working in unscripted TV and offer advice about careers and CVs.
Everyone joins on Zoom for introductions then break out rooms will be introduced to enable a 15 minute 1:1 consultation. Talent Managers taking part are advertised in advance and freelancers can request the Talent Manager they would prefer to meet if possible. Those not in a meeting will be in another break out room with Cheryl, who will be on hand to answer any questions about anything including CV advice.
Who it's for
Our second session is for researchers and APs and our Talent Managers are:
Lauren Evans (ITV Entertainment & Possessed) Julia Waring (RDF) Simon Wright (Viacom) Tamara Durnford (All 3 Media) Daniell Morrissey (BBC) Hattie Woods/Vicky Bennetts (Wall to Wall / TwentyTwenty) Jessica Wilson (Potato) Nikki Ryan (Multi Story Media)
The event is produced and hosted by Cheryl Woodcock (ITV Entertainment & Possessed).
