I would like to nominate myself for the future leaders programme as I feel I could really benefit from all it has to offer. I am proud of where I’ve got to in my career, but am determined to continue progressing, rising through the ranks and getting to the very top of this industry. As a black, female, working class Midlands based Series Producer I understand the importance of having more people like me being the key decision makers in this industry. I would certainly value and make the most of this brilliant opportunity.
