the collective

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.

Louis joined the team in the summer of 2020, following a few years freelancing as a production assistant in commercials and branded content.

Having honed his skills working with brands such as Coca-cola, BMW, BT and RBS as well as a wealth of public sector clients, he is just as at home arranging international travel or helping with budgets as he is balancing a tray of coffees and keeping things running smoothly on location.
