Head of Production, Sport, BBC
Paula is currently the Head of Production for BBC Sport managing all operational parts of the business (TV, Radio, Digital & News) delivering the Olympics, MOTD, Wimbledon, World Cup and, well everything Sport that goes on the BBC. She has considerable experience of leading teams and is a very creative and effective problem solver. She likes people (generally) and is skilled at developing and motivating large teams as well as at finding and implementing efficiencies in them – yes these things conflict from time to time. Paula is passionate about the added value provided by good production management and knows how important the job is. She wants to inspire the best in resource and facility management, procurements, supplier contracting & management, business risk management, finance and accounting, innovation in the best use technology and getting the right people in the right job and the right price. Paula is a strong leader and good communicator (though bath time with her children does test these skills from time to time).
