Mia’s previous role as Head of New Business for PRETTYBIRD which she held for 4 years helped define a strong and diverse roster of talent working with brands such as Nike, Amazon, On Running, H&M, The Glenlivet and the first-ever branded entertainment series to hit the UK TV with Channel 4, Balmain and Sunshine.

Mia is a strong advocate for change and continues to champion marginalised and underrepresented voices.

Girls in here. There’s too many men too many many men. In fact we need more people that look like me in senior roles across the advertising landscape. Women, and more specifically, brown women are still terribly underrepresented across the C suite roles. Let’s change that!
