Sound Women Launches New Training Events

Networking and development group Sound Women is offering two training sessions this autumn, aimed at helping women in audio further their careers.

They are part of a new series of events due to run across the country in the coming months, designed to build confidence and leadership skills.

The first event is at MediaCityUk on September 30th from 6:30pm to 8pm, called “Get That Job”.

Open to both members and non-members, Sound Women will be dispensing advice on applying for a new role and coping with the interview process. This practical workshop will also show how to learn from rejection and still keep feeling positive.

It’ll be led by BBC Radio’s Managing Editor, Radio & Music Production Jo Denovan, along with Alison Forshaw, Managing Director of Real and Smooth Radio North West.

And the “How to Win” session in October aims to encourage women to consider applying for more industry awards. An experienced panel, including Lisa Kerr, chair of the Arqivas and BBC Radio 1 producer Dellessa James, will be speaking about how to put together a winning package.

Sue Ahern, Sound Women Director said: “The way to help women progress in their audio careers is by development and training. We have access to a wealth of talented and skilled professionals and it’s fantastic they are will to share their knowledge and expertise to improve the performance of women across the industry”
