I was a member of the marketing and communications team at MTV Networks Europe from 1993 to 1998.
During my time at MTV, I became the pan-European network's Head of Writing for all off-air copy with responsibility for press and sales materials as well as speeches and presentations delivered by senior personnel at conferences and events across the globe.
I prepared presentations and executive talking points for press events, briefing celebrity presenters including Davina McCall and Robbie Williams. At the annual MTV Europe Music Awards, I worked the Red Carpet and backstage press area, managing talent flow, escorting artists and hosting press conferences.
I worked with the Human Resources team to create and launch the company-wide internal newsletter and with the Talent and Artist Relations department to devise regular marketing communications for record companies.
I also oversaw the commercial marketing strategy, promoting the channel to advertisers globally and supporting the work of the advertising sales team.
