International Women’s Day is this Sunday 8th March. It’s a global day where we are celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. We are lucky to have several wonderful women in our workforce so we thought we’d take an opportunity to put a spotlight on a couple of them.
Introducing our Corporate Development Lead, Alexia Sciplino. Alexia leads on all our business development and member engagement initiatives, more importantly she is responsible for keeping us connected with all of you.
Alexia, tell us about how you got into this industry.
My background is in PR which led me to working at a tech PR company, many moons ago at the start of my career. Once I was in, the tech industry was far too exciting for me to leave – it was great to be at the centre of the innovation that was evolving.
What’s your favourite part of the role?
For me, it’s about the engagement that I have with our members and the industry. Also working with the team on developing new initiatives that help keep the DTG at heart of the industry.
Which technology excites you the most and why?
Smart tech – it’s amazing what you can do and makes life so convenient. And the smart home is becoming more of a reality in my house… which is quite exciting….
Do you go to any industry events?
I do indeed – I’m a big fan of networking, bringing the industry together and industry events. I also run TRIC, the Television & Radio Industries Club, we hold three high profile events each year for the TV and Radio industries. In fact, our main event is next week – the TRIC Awards! Hectic at the moment but it’s always a fun day.
A non-work related question now… What was the last TV series that you watched?
I’ve watched quite a few recently – all different genres. Britannia – one for medieval fans; Fleabag – comedy; and also Wisting – because who doesn’t love a Scandinavian crime drama?!
And another fun one to finish! Do you have any hobbies that give you a break from DTG?
Yes, definitely. I run a supper club with my partner. If you’re ever visiting Suffolk we have a couple of supper clubs in Southwold and Walberswick. Let me know if you want to join!
