An award-winning former BBC TV producer has described moving to Cumbria as a “revelation” after launching a brand new business venture.
Caroline Page, who spent 15 years working in television producing several award-winning documentaries, including an Emmy nomination, and a Royal Television Society (RTS) accolade, has launched Chilli Communications in Kendal.
The agency will primarily focus on the arts, the legal sector, and financial sector, servicing both local and national businesses. It received start up support from Choose Cumbria partners Invest in South Lakeland.
Ms Page said: "Moving to Cumbria has been a revelation. The strength of the business community, wealth of talent, vibrant arts scene and, impressive communications companies, means that I am excited about what the future holds."
“Whether telling the story behind Handel’s Messiah or the latest development in Fintech, the rules of presenting content in an engaging and compelling way are fundamentally the same.
She added: "I’m particularly grateful to South Lakeland District Council (Invest in South Lakeland) and the MintWorks team, where Chilli is based, for the fantastic support they provide for a start-up business like mine.”
"We’ve got off to a great beginning, so I’m looking to start recruiting others to join the Chilli team from early 2018.”
As well as communications, Chilli offers media training and can produce broadcast quality corporate films.
