Naomi Sesay, On-Screen Diversity Executive with Channel 4

Graduating with a BA (Hons) in European Business Management, Naomi went onto work for MTV News as a Producer/Director and Presenter at the height of MTV Europe's popularity.  During her 15 years in television, Naomi also worked as one of the first Producers of Channel 4's 'Big Brother'.

Having spent 15 years in television, Naomi decided to make the switch from a career in broadcast media to becoming a successful property investor, mentor and trainer within the wealth creation arena.

Her journey has culminated in taking to the stage as an inspirational speaker, a thought leader and an entrepreneur who oozes a unique energy from the first moment you meet her.

Owner of the Billionaire Ladies Club, a growing global network of highly aspirational women looking to transform the world through entrepreneurship, Naomi has fascinated audiences with the essence of what really makes digital communications so powerful, why digital innovation is such an important tool of reconnection & identity and what every digital marketer needs to know before structuring a communication program.

It is therefore hardly surprising that so many people, especially women, have approached her for mentoring.

Currently, Naomi is the On Screen Diversity Executive with Channel 4. She has delivered training for an array of organisations including, BAFTA, ITN, ITV, BBC, Turner, Viacom, Primesight, Sky TV, Campaign Magazine and many more. She has also worked with Educational programs, schools, charities, Her Majesty's Prison Services and corporate entities.

Expert's comment

It is a real pleasure to participate in Media LIVE!, especially alongside such an interesting range of industry speakers. The biggest plaudits should always go to the student attendees though, and the Media Live! audiences are as engaged, challenging, passionate, talented and articulate an audience of young people as you could hope to meet!
