Supporting #WeMakeEvents

This is a photo of me doing the job I love. While it might not seem that much, this was actually a big deal. Making a film about the #WeMakeEvents campaign yesterday was the first time our team at The Inside Story has got together to do a production like this since February. Despite this, we consider ourselves to be the…

Polls have arrived on LinkedIn
Social Media, The Inside Story / June 5, 2020

Polls have arrived on LinkedIn

It’s always exciting when a new feature, especially one you’ve hoped would happen, finally arrives on a social media platform. LinkedIn has introduced polls, which is great news. They work in a similar way to Facebook Polls, the main differences being you can have up to 4 options vs Facebook’s 2, and you’re unable to add an image to an…

What happens when a filmmaker can’t film?

I’ve never really thought of myself as a filmmaker, despite being Head of Video at The Inside Story. I used to put ‘Generalist’ on my CV as I thought it best covered my sometimes-eclectic skillset and made me sound a bit mysterious… In today’s creative industries though, it’s almost a requirement to know something about everything. We solve problems. With…

Why it’s important to take time off during lockdown

The situation for every single person in the world is different right now, both in terms of normal everyday life and what we’re all going through with our own individual challenges. People’s jobs have changed, their roles have changed, people are furloughed, people have been made redundant, companies have been forced to change. The workplace has changed.   Outside of work, everything has also changed….

I’m certifiable

I’m certifiable

One of the constant messages that we are all receiving at the moment is to use the time working from home constructively. Educational opportunities have been a major element in this with all sorts of distance learning courses being promoted. After being barraged by these opportunities every day for the last few weeks, I decided I should actually take one…

Surviving Covid-19 and making yourself herd

Surviving Covid-19 and making yourself herd

As I write this, there’s a theory bouncing around social media that alongside the usual symptoms of Covid-19 – those being, of course, a high fever, a dry cough and an extraordinary loss of income – the novel coronavirus which is currently causing more damage to the world than even Donald Trump could dream of also distorts the sufferer’s sense…

The slipper, a work shoe?

The slipper, a work shoe?

As many of us are now working from home, we’re all learning to be innovative and problem solve familiar challenges in entirely new ways.  Whether it’s communication with teams and colleagues, sharing files and data or accessing secure portals, businesses and their people are overcoming difficulties and learning how to do things differently.   This experience of long-term working from home will change the modern…

Working remotely works

With everything that is going on at the moment with the Coronavirus pandemic, The Inside Story has taken a cautious approach to how we are working. As such, rather than writing this from my desk, I am sat at my dining room table using my laptop. In years gone by, this would have completely wiped out my ability to be…

Women in AV: Unconscious Biases, Mentorship and Being a Total Badass

Women in AV: Unconscious Biases, Mentorship and Being a Total Badass

When I fell into the pro audio industry just a few months ago, I knew that it was important for me to find likeminded women who I could relate to and learn from. As much as I like and respect my male counterparts, there really is nothing like being surrounded by badass women – women who are achieving amazing things,…

Finding the right humans

In the first two months of 2020, we have experienced a pair of epic road trips to reach the two most important trade shows in the AV industry, NAMM and ISE. While the shows were both fantastic, the real joy came from the road trips themselves, largely thanks to the ridiculous people I’m fortunate enough to work with. Finding the…
