After completing her BA (Hons) Degree in Event Management in 2018, Anna undertook a 6-week internship at Creative Artist Agency (CAA), one of the biggest live agents in the world. On completion, Anna secured a full-time position as ‘Agent and Music Touring Assistant’ with the company.
Anna’s previous work experience secured during her time at BIMM Brighton include a ‘Technician’ at Brighton Dome and ‘Events Co-ordinator’ at Brighton & Hove Pride Festival. The latter was her first real events based office job and taught Anna much about the intricacies of running large scale events, plus how to work in an office environment.
During her time at BIMM Brighton, Anna was also the Co-ordinator for End of Term Gigs, advancing shows for the college’s songwriting showcases and end of term shows, as well as being on-hand during show days from load-in to load-out.
Reflecting on her time at BIMM, Anna said:
“My time at BIMM helped so much with developing my skills and network within the live music industry. It shaped me as a person and as a professional, as well as opening door for me that I don’t believe I would have been able to open without the help of the industry professionals at BIMM.”
