New shadow board for EVCOM
EVCOM, a corporate events and film association, hosted its first shadow board meeting which aims to make the sector a place for young and diverse people.
The shadow board is made up of nine 18–25-year-olds, who met with the senior board and staff members of EVCOM to discuss content, events, inclusivity and youth engagement.
The members of the board are: Adam Davies; Celine Amara; Dan Rhodes; Ellie Papas; Gabriela Ferenc; Hamza Pool; Marlijn Hegge; and Vikesh Sitpura.
Amelia Brown, marketing and communications executive, EVCOM, said: “It was so refreshing to be surrounded by so many ideas, and so much invaluable perspective. I’m really looking forward to working with such a brilliant group of people, and to making these ideas happen. This is a whole new venture for EVCOM, and I think it’s going to change us and the sector for the better.”
Claire Fennelow, executive director, EVCOM, said: “The Board and myself are incredibly excited by the vision and ideas of the new shadow board. Having worked on and originated many youth programmes in my time, I am really glad to be bringing this to EVCOM. We look forward to working closely with them, to ensure that EVCOM and the industries of corporate film and events, remain relevant and are truly diverse and inclusive.”
