Not all of the problems we faced in 2020 were new ones, but many of them became profoundly visible or indeed inescapable for the first time. For a small parish church, the issue was how people could continue to engage with services and with each other when they were unable to attend in person. These connections are a cornerstone of functioning communities and the ability of the church to facilitate them has never been so challenging. On the other hand, the technology developed to facilitate remote interaction has seen many exciting developments as global connectivity improves, and a media consultant can help you make sense of the options to create a sustainable solution.
In the short time that Ben was on placement with us, he was a huge asset to our team – and I would go as far as to say that our online folklore festival wouldn’t have been a success without him. Ben brought expertise and experience to our team, as well as commitment and dedication. I would have no hesitation in recommending Ben for a position where he could use his expertise and passion, and would very happily work with him again in the future, should the opportunity ever arise.
We were very lucky to have Ben on our team to carry out a variety of jobs which made the event possible. I would happily recommend Ben for any similar role in the creative industries.
