Tom is the Head of Interactive at BBC Studios. He is responsible for working across the business to innovate, grow and help shape and deliver its interactive output. He co-founded the digital department, BBC Studios Digital, guiding the overall strategy of the business and bringing talent and teams together. Along the way he has been behind innovative and award winning content, picking up accolades from Cannes Lions to FoST Jury Prizes.

 

Previously he has been an agency founder and an exec and creative consultant working with businesses, startups and organisations to help them innovate, develop new ideas and deliver great content for audiences.

Quote: “It’s most often our peers that recognise the craft, passion, blood, sweat and tears that go into our work, these awards are about us all doffing our cap to those of you who really nailed it. I look forward to seeing some fresh thinking, with the audience at its heart, that delivered some true value”
