Tell us a bit about your journey into the technical production industry. How did you get to where you are now?

Like all of our team, Ollie works incredibly hard and we couldn’t be more grateful for his experience and his enthusiasm. I know I for one look forward to the day we get to read his food blog! As with many of our other wonderful Tell team members, Ollie’s role is crucial to the day-to-day running of our business and without his work behind the scenes, we wouldn’t be the same. We’re so glad to have him around!
