SVG Europe Women Virtual’s Networking Uncovered event exposed the secrets of the art of getting to know people and moving ahead in your sports broadcasting career.
On Thursday 10 September, the panel, made up of members of the SVG Europe Women Advisory Board, discussed new and old perceptions of networking, face-to-face meetings versus connecting virtually, getting ahead at this difficult time in the sports broadcasting industry, and practical tips on how to make networking work for you.
The speakers for this event were: Lise Cosimi, external head of SVG Europe Women and sports industry consultant; Inga Ruehl, executive director, production services and operations at Sky; Anna Lockwood, head of global sales, Telstra Broadcast Services; Roisin McKeniry, head of production technology at Timeline Television for BT Sport; and Paula Rigby, head of international production and broadcast consultant at Noah Media Group.
Additionally, SVG Europe Women sports mentee from the Rise programme, Sarah McLaughlin, multi skilled operator at Professional Squash Association (PSA), was part of the conversation. McLaughlin shared her perspective and experiences of networking in sports broadcasting as someone who is at the beginning of her career, and trying to make contacts during lockdown.
This SVG Europe Women Virtual hangout was chaired by the internal head of SVG Europe Women and SVG Europe editor, Heather McLean.
