For episode 87 we are joined by the gorgeous Shanice Mears, Head of Talent & Co-founder of creative agency, The Elephant Room.

Shannie shares her passion for fostering community and supporting others - being a bridge between talent and opportunity.

She goes back to her creative roots and discusses her love of dance and how she shaped her talent and skills to work within advertising.

Ambitious and wanting to connect with like-minded people she founded 'Girls Let's Talk' before she relocated from Birmingham to London and how her love for music led her to be a Community Manager for the London Chapter of shesaid.so - a brilliant organisation, which brings together a global community of women and gender minorities in the music industry.
