Hi, I’m Becky… fourth across to the right in the photograph and looking very dark in a black top (I’m usually much more colourful!). I wanted to introduce our new team, as we come into the new year. Our Theatre & Dance Directors are lucky enough to have their own page on the website, so please join me in welcoming aboard:
Naomi Passmore (second along and wearing a white top) is our new administrator. We’re very excited to have her on board!
Ollie Evans (third along wearing the grey jumper) is now looking after all our schools in the West Midlands, the North-West and the North-East of England.
Charlie Battye, the tallest member of our team (on the right and in the blue shirt) is now looking after our partnerships. So anything to do with drumming, our E-Safety performance, One Day 3D or our Shakespeare performances – Charlie’s your man!
… and not forgetting our super talented Artistic Director Steph (on the far left) and the lovely, brilliant Lauren (stood between Charlie and I) who looks after all of our schools in London, the South-East and the along the East-Coast!
Back in September, One Day was identified by Goldman Sach & Leeds University as a business with serious growth potential and we have been lucky enough to find ourselves on the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses course, which is delivered by Leeds University Business School. Whilst I am very much looking forward to completing my 40 page Business Growth Plan, I’m definitely not looking forward to finishing the course, to which we graduate at the end of February. The course has been invaluable for learning excellent business skills, meeting fantastic people and helping to grow the business in a structured environment.
Not only are we growing internally, but because of demand on the workshops, we’re also expanding on our already fantastic freelance team. We’re holding auditions once again in London on Monday, and there’s another brand new location in Birmingham on Tuesday! We’re always on the look-out for passionate and enthusiastic drama and dance facilitators – so if you’re just that – and love working with young people – please do drop us a line! We’d love to hear from you.
Anyway… back to work for yet another exciting year ahead! 🙂
