Rafaela Perera - Events Director

Executive Creative Director: BBC Worldwide

A BIT ABOUT RAF: Having carved out a career working as a copywriter in Australian ad agency BADJAR Ogilvy, Rafaela left Melbourne to go travelling with no definite plan other than to work on her tan. Instead, she wound up working in television and launching what she believes to be one of the best products ever invented – Sky +. She spent a decade at BSKYB leading the multi-award winning creative teams for Sky One and Sky Atlantic. She also worked on the hugely successful ITV re-brand, wrote a comedy drama and did a stint as Creative Director at Comedy Central.

PROMAXBDA UK BOARD ROLE: Raf will be the lead on all events. This year we are launching a new format of Ted talk style drinks evenings which are ticketed but free/sponsored. These will be individually curated with exciting and inspiring speakers. As well as being a great networking opportunity we aim to set a new relevant and cool tone for PromaxBDA UK.

If you would like to get involved or offer suggestions in this area please contact our board producer Mary Claire.
