Drink with a Commissioner: Navi Lamba, Digital Commissioning Exec, E4

  • When: 30th Apr 2020, 18:30-19:30
  • Organised by: ScreenSkills
  • Location: Online
  • Price: Free
  • Age: 18+

Grab your favourite drink and get ready to raise a glass with a commissioner.

Participants will be able to join a commissioner and listen to their insights as well as ask questions at the end of the hour.

These are great sessions for our freelance community who don’t normally get the opportunity to chat to commissioners. So, if you’re a head honcho who normally has all the commissioners on speed-dial this session isn’t for you! Please keep this in mind when booking. Thanks for your support and understanding.


Navi Lamba, E4’s Digital Commissioning Exec, oversees the development and delivery of E4’s linear content with a focus on digital and is leading the curation of C4’s upcoming teen strand. Navi joined E4 in 2020 from BBC Three where she was the head of social and led a range of social media innovations, overseeing campaigns for Fleabag , RuPaul’s Drag Race UK and Killing Eve.

Chair: Jita Mitra, Youtube Exective, BBC Three
