Meet the Team Monday
Alison Taylor – Managing Director
1. What is the most exciting project that you’ve worked on in the past 12 and why?
It is difficult to choose just one project from all of the wonderful and amazing things we have been working on but one that sticks out for me, because of the breadth of ambition and the diversity of skills required to bring it to fruition, is Planetari. I feel so privileged to have worked with the talented Cindy Forde in helping her vision to become a reality and we have also met some truly brilliant people along the way, including one of my idols, Ben Fogle, who is as lovely in real life as he is on the screen.
2. During your career what is the biggest challenge that you’ve overcome?
Over the years I’ve developed a thick skin but one of the biggest challenges I think I’ve faced along the way has been to fight for what I believe to be right and good. Thankfully, the workplace has changed considerably in 30 years and it is now much fairer and more flexible than it used to be, particularly for women, new parents and carers.
3. What has been a ‘pinch me’ moment?
Finding myself on the dance floor with Sophie Ellis Bextor in Sir Elton John’s house at an Aids charity fundraiser – completely surreal!
