On the first Saturday of February 2015, history was made for a start-up organisation that is all about connecting women with Senior and leading women in competitive & male dominated industries.
Girls Talk London filmed a new panel web series aimed at helping young women aged 16-30 have the best life and career, by creating a platform where current & entertainment issues can be discussed and debated in a fun and inspiring environment.
And it sure was fun and inspiring, as well as a shoot full of smiley, like-minded and open individuals!
As Guest Liaison for the Sessions I was responsible for the management and experience of the high-profile guests who were coming on the show.
I was the first person to greet the guests upon their arrival at our epic location on the More London Riverside by City Hall.
I looked after them during the day, made sure that they arrived on set on time for their interview and ensured they were comfortable throughout their day.
There was ample energy amongst the crew, guests and panel during the Sessions.
I was overwhelmed by how nice and friendly everyone was, we were all there on a voluntary basis having applied with the same aim – all wanting to help out this great organisation.
Our line-up certainly didn’t disappoint either – with guests from a spectrum of industries, it’s no wonder these Sessions are hotly anticipated.
We shot three themed episodes: Well-being & Life, Fashion & Beauty and Career & Business.
The panel were made up of a foursome of highly creative and ambitious individuals who “smashed it”.
- Vanessa Sanyauke, Founder of Girls Talk London
- Remel London, TV Presenter & Host of What’s up on Sky 1
- Yazmin Joy Vigus, Writer & Founder of aliljoy.com
- Dean Quintin Smith, Presenter & Cast Member of Bear Grylls, Channel 4
They had brilliant chemistry and did an incredible job at injecting energy to the programme.
They were also laugh out loud funny and had some cracking one-liners on and off the set.
The guests were honestly a joy to work with.
They were kind, gracious and appreciate of every gesture.
I certainly didn’t mind making tea and running errands for them. I made a few new friends along the way and enjoyed the company of some brilliant females!
Executive Coach and Author of ‘Rocking your role’, Jenny Garrett was definitely among my favourite guests to learn from. Yes to proud female breadwinners who’re owning their lives, and are in control of their careers.
Another of my inspirations at this event was the super cool, effortless leader and down-to-earth all rounder, Miss Ruby Mae Moore – Editor in Chief of Amor Magazine UK.
This woman started her magazine for the ‘all woman’ at just 19. She describes it as a platform that anyone who wants to break into the media, can write for and get involved with.
She was such a dignified woman, that I respected what she was about so much.
We wrapped up filming at 6.30pm on the dot, with everyone smiling through the exhaustion!
This was our view when we stepped outside after packing up.
What a crazy day, with great people. I can’t wait for you all to see the episodes which will air on the GirlsTalkLondon You Tube channel in due course.
Thanks to everyone involved – I had a blast.
