|Name: Isabella Speight
Job: Digital Content Strategist
Isabella has worked in the digital space for six years starting out as a co-ordinator for the ex-Head of Marketing for Chanel, creating content for a luxury children’s website alongside running a lifestyle and beauty blog. This eventually led to moving across into the interior space under an ex-dragon and resulted in skipping towards the music industry. Working as a digital channel manager across various MUSIC TEAM // ULTIMATE SEMINAR 2020-2021 artists within many genres at a Digital agency for a few years, I then joined YM&U and following a year working in the Entertainment department, it has led to becoming a ‘Digital Content Strategist’ within Music. Also an obsessive reader and Animal Crossing Enthusiast.
Quote: Whilst at my last year of school, I didn’t have any idea that my job existed within the music industry or any of the jobs that I’ve had for that matter. Therefore, I’d love to impart some of the bits and pieces I’ve picked up along the way and give back to those who are creative and aren’t sure just how possible their horizons are. I never had a mentor, but if I had one now, I’d be bombarding them with questions and asking for advice; I’m more than eager to be that person for somebody should they need and want it.
