Creative Content Producer, Valve Events
Martin‘s professional bio / interests
I'm a multi-skilled Event Content Producer, specialising as a Video Director/Editor and Presentation Designer. I also deliver content on-site at events as a Show Caller and a Graphics Operator, which allows me to provide my clients with the complete 'door-to-door' content offering, from concept, through design to delivery. I believe a client's message is key, within any live communication space, and that great client relationships are built on my ability to consistently deliver those messages, on time and on-budget. Content is still King... now more than ever.
I’d like help with…
Finding like-minded creatives and agencies, who share a passion for producing engaging content, for future opportunities.
An interesting, or unusual fact(s) about me…
Most of what I've done in the industry has been self-taught. I started as a graphic designer and just keep growing with every opportunity open to me across many years in small agencies. I think taking the chance to develop yourself outside of your day-to-day role is the one go the key offerings in the events industry, on the job training in a hands-on environment. Oh and I can touch my knees without bending my body and my party trick Is hiding a 50p coin up my nose... yes, the old, bigger, 50p!

A career highlight
I've worked some great venues and been to amazing places... but after nearly 25 years in 'Agency World', I'm pretty pleased about picking myself up after losing a great role in COVID. I've had the chance to do so much more in the last three years, I should have gone freelance years ago!
