Location: Arboretum: Work & Playroom, 2a Charing Cross Rd, London, WC2H 0HF
We are delighted to announce the return of our Intern to CEO series of events, in which successful heads of organisations tell us about their journey through the arts.
Sam Jackson, Senior Managing Editor at Global Radio, will discuss his career journey, from his days as a student doing a placement at BBC Radio York to his role today where he is responsible for the entire on-air output of three stations - Smooth, Classic FM and Gold - which together reach a combined audience of over 12 million listeners per week.
5 FACTS ABOUT SAM
Sam will be interviewed by Maddy Shaw-Roberts who is the Senior Digital Content Editor for Classic FM. She spends her time growing Classic FM’s online presence through, and not limited to, the use of quizzes, choral memes and videos of cats who sit on pianos. Over the last two years, Maddy has interviewed and filmed with some of classical music’s most exciting names – from Eric Whitacre and Danielle De Niese to Hans Zimmer. In her spare time, she can be found playing the piano, attempting to master the ukulele and singing with the London Concert Choir.
Join us at the Arboretum Work and Playroom on Charing Cross Road - part of the exclusive LIBRARY private members club! After the event we'll all go for a drink nearby.
