Nominated by Hannah Wyatt ,  MD Factual Entertainment and Events, BBC

Sue is a great casting producer who then completed the Skillset Series Producer training and has just gained her first series producing credit. She has fantastic potential and would benefit from the extra support as she moves up to this next level.
It can be difficult making that next step in a more full time way as you move from one level to another and having a wider network to understand her potential as well as a mentor and coach to help navigate the new role would be something I think she’d appreciate and gain a lot from.

Sue is fantastic at nurturing up and coming talent from a wide range of backgrounds both behind and in front of the camera. I know that already, more junior team members really respect her and see her as role model. On screen talent also really love her and she’s absolutely brilliant at finding emerging talent from diverse backgrounds in a whole range of fields.
