Friday Five: Matthew Cole, Non-Fiction Agent at Northbank
It was a great turnout for the #HowYouDoing launch drinks at Mama Shelter on Hackney Road in East London (and rightfully a few producers have been in touch to campaign for a regional event soon).
We had a chance to talk to attendees from across the industry ahead of World Mental Health Day about how their workplaces can ensure they are in ‘listening mode’ for TV workers facing mental health challenges, including staff from Warner Bros, Sky, MGM Studios, All3Media, ITV Studios and many more.
We also previewed one of our first poster designs (below). We’re aiming to make a selection of posters available for workplaces, as a mechanism for talking to their staff periodically about mental health.
If you know someone who can design a poster, or if you’re artistic yourself and want to have a go, please do! Find out more details, including how to register for a workplace pack at www.howyoudoing.tv. Thanks to Beattie PR for all their support.
James Carroll is a broadcast agent at Northbank Talent Management and founder of the #HowYouDoing campaign.
