Ever fancied a coffee with someone whose TV talents you really admire? Someone who could give excellent careers advice? Someone who might provide the inspiration you’ve been looking for?
Then join the queue. And join in. Because Northwest Vision and Media are organising a series of A Coffee With… sessions for creative types in North West England, linking new talent within the film and TV industry, to established professionals keen to pass on their knowledge and advice.
“We wanted to create a situation where trainees could network with someone who may be able to help them with work experience, training or careers advice, so A Coffee With… is the perfect place to do just that,” explains Daisy Ashton, Project Co-ordinator at Vision and Media, which works on behalf of the region’s TV, film, radio and digital content industries.
“The A Coffee With… sessions will be a wonderful way for new talent to be able to chat with someone who they wouldn’t usually get the chance to speak to, someone who may be inspirational or even directly help them with career development,” adds Daisy.
North West Vision have TV professionals lined up from ITV and BBC. To be in with a chance send your CV and a one page covering letter explaining which area of the industry you are interested in – drama, factuals or entertainment – and tell us why you should get the chance to meet your TV hero, then email your entry to Daisy Ashton at email@example.com
