Career Design Webinar Series: So you Want to Work in TV – Discover Yourself with Charlie Smith June 11th

Charlie Smith, Writer and Head of Development at Bell Media - Go big or go home - According to Grammarist.com, this statement is an exhortation to go all-out, to put all of one's effort into an enterprise, to experience something to its fullest, to be extravagant. This has been Charlie's mantra for the greater portion of his life and has carried him tremendously far from working here in London on local channels, to the Dragon's Den, to starting his company and now working with Bell Media.

As a Showrunner, Writer and Head of Development for Bell Media's Exploration Production Inc he's learned what it takes to make it where most don't. Through a mix of analytics and out-of-the-box thinking Charlie has researched, developed, pitched and created TV shows that aired in over 150 countries. So what does it take to make your dream job in television come true?  Charlie reveals his favourite stories and biggest fails from working up the ladder in Canadian TV, while revealing how personal relationship building, persistence, and genuine passion became his secret weapons in making his own dream job a reality.
