Building a career based on storytelling and how mentorship played a role in making it happen.

Duration: 1hr 15mins | 40-minute talk + x2 rounds of Soundboard matches (10 mins each)
What is Soundboard?
Soundboard is a platform to help the people in our community find inspiration, shift perspectives, and expand any self-limiting beliefs that might be holding you back to ultimately have a more fulfilled and content life! The tool that we use to do this is through a meaningful exchange of experience.
We bring together thought leaders, musicians, creatives, founders, and business owners who are doing something brilliant to hear how they achieved what they did and the defining experiences that got them there.
Building connections with likeminded people is the heart of Soundboard, how else can we learn, inspire, and motivate each other? That's why we always include two 10 minute Speed Soundboarding sessions – an opportunity for our dedicated team to handpick someone else at the event for you to talk to based on your interests, background, or personal/professional goals.
This session welcomes Alys Harte, investigative journalist and documentary filmmaker for the BBC. Alys Harte has held positions across the UK and Ireland working as a researcher, correspondent, and producer for the BBC, RTE and Newstalk.
We'll hear about passions, influence and mentors that helped shape Alys' career in investigative reporting and what inspires her most about her path. This session will be particularly interesting to those working in media, documentary making, writing and journalism.
How it works:
At the point of sign up, you will be asked to share some details about yourself. The information is used to match you with a Soundboard.
You will receive an overview of who your matches are ahead of the event so you’re not going in blind.
Don’t worry, there will be no awkward conversations because we give you a topic to discuss with your match so no last-minute scrambling for what to say.
You make genuine connections and meet people you already have something in common with - we handpick a match for you based on pre-shared criteria which means you can skip the small talk and get right to the good stuff.
Don't let the fear of meeting someone new scare you off, guaranteed inspiration or your money back!
