Daniel Robey, founder and chief executive officer of film and entertainment agency Think Jam, has become the latest agency leader to feature on the Jazz FM Business Shapers show.
Robey, in conversation with the show’s host Elliot Moss, discusses his life as an entrepreneur, the creation of Think Jam and its corporate culture, and the state of the entertainment industry in 2018.
With reference to the importance of diversity in modern agencies, Robey said: “We have different people from different backgrounds with lots of skills, which I think is important. I sometimes call us Glee Club, with clear reference to the show. We are not trying to be cookie cutters; everyone needs to come with a different background, interest, energy or passion, which makes up the whole.”
Robey also addressed the importance of junior team members having the freedom to fail. He said: “People learn by mistakes, and I hope they know that they are surrounded by people who will protect, educate, help and guide them to get to the right places.”
