Katie Derham: Co-Founder
Katie has been the face of the BBC Proms since 2010. Previously she was at ITV News, first as Media & Arts Correspondent then as anchor for all ITV’s national news bulletins.
Music has always been a big part of Katie’s life, presenting the Classical Brits, Classic FM, taking part in BBC2’s Maestro and Sky Arts’ First Love, and now broadcasting on Radio 3.
Fronting documentaries and current affairs shows for television and radio, combined with her early experience as a business journalist and an economics degree, has made her a frequently requested moderator for corporate events.
Katie is proud to be involved with a number of charities including the Prince’s Trust, Leonard Cheshire Disability and Dementia UK. She’s also a member of the Cambridge University Alumni Advisory Board and on their Communications Committee.
And she also really rather enjoyed getting to the final of BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing in 2015.
Jane Gerber: Co-founder & Executive Producer
Jane’s love of creating pretty pictures started at an early age when her painting skills got a special mention at nursery school.
A BAFTA & RTS nominee and winner of a coveted Broadcast Award, Jane produced and directed documentary and factual series for BBC, Channel 4, ITV, Sky as well as international broadcasters across subject areas ranging from architecture to fashion, music to food. These included BBC1’s What Not To Wear, BBC2’s The Nation’s Favourite Food, Channel 4’s Risking it All, ITV’s This Morning, GMTV as well as Sky Arts’ First Love.
Jane then moved across from broadcast to corporate, developing creative solutions for digital branded content for public and private sector organisations.
When she’s not behind a camera, Jane will more than likely be found at a 45 degree angle sailing her boat.
Faye Nickolds: Media Coaching & Strategy Consultant
Faye Nickolds spent more than a decade at ITN & ITV News. In that time she edited all ITV Network news programmes as well as leading coverage of General Elections, Mayoral elections and major global news events.
She led that programme to ratings success as well as a Royal Television Society Award and two consecutive Amnesty International Media Awards.
Her corporate experience has seen her consulting for CEOs, Founders and Chairs of businesses such as Grey London, National Express, HAVAS and British Business Bank.
ROWENA LOVELL: Production Director
Row loved watching the box as she was growing up, so it was no surprise she pursued a career in television, managing prime time productions for BBC, Channel 4, ITV and Sky including The Kumars at No 42, Bad Lads Army, Cutting Edge and the Rose D’or winning, BAFTA nominated Blood Sweat and Takeaways.
Row has worked with brands since 2012 delivering entertainment, comedy and documentary content for Microsoft, Waitrose and House of Fraser. She also went inside a global brand running the Creative & Digital Department at Save the Children UK; her team produced the award-winning Still The Most Shocking A Day.
The one constant in Row’s career has been her trusted to-do list. She has and always will find a nerdy pleasure in writing lists and ticking things off.
