Nominated by Donna Taberer, Head of Talent, BBC
Dani is a stand-out PD and Edit Producer. She is hugely talented and has a touch of gold-dust.
She now needs a confidence boost to ensure she reaches the heights she is so clearly capable of. Securing a mentor through this programme could be transformational for her.
She is a hugely rated PD and Edit Producer. But in my opinion she should be a Series Producer or Exec Producer. The only thing holding Dani back is Dani!
