Rob Fox - Learning + Development Director

Deputy Creative Director: Channel 5

A BIT ABOUT ROB: Rob has been at Channel 5 for over 10 years. With the broadcaster’s acquisition by Viacom in 2014, he was charged with integrating the department into it’s new owner and has overseen a drive to help bring Channel 5 and it’s digital family (Spike, 5STAR, 5USA and My5) both younger and more ABC1. This included a major rebrand at the beginning of 2016 and an increase in the channel’s presence both off-air and in social. Prior to that he worked for Sky and when not spotted laptop in hand, he’s usually found on a sports field/track of some form.

PROMAXBDA UK BOARD ROLE: Filling the need for relevant tv focused training courses, Rob is going to fully research and launch PUK Masterclasses. Courses managers will actually want to send their juniors to. e.g.‘How to make a promo in day’ ‘Audio: editing music, directing VOs & mixing’ ‘Copywriting’ ‘What makes good social video’ We would hope to eventually expand this out to more senior level events e.g leadership development’.

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