Maz is an expert in Entertainment & Reality TV & was a regular panelist with host Tom Ballard on Reality Check, ABC Australia.
She started life as a magazine journalist & stylist in London, and Absolutely Fabulous was based on her agent – she thinks it’s a documentary.
She has since had a variety of smart corner offices as Executive Editor of Format Entertainment at the BBC UK London, Director of Television Content, Fremantle Media Australia & Director of the award winning, Media Tribe, Australia.
Maz is currently Creative Strategist at BBCWW, Executive Producer of Megastar, an international online talent show based in San Francisco & runs Absolutely Farrelly, a company which specialises in creative content, training & strategy.
Maz believes all business is show business, and to cut through in this listening-deficient society, you have to deliver the triple Es - Entertainment, Engagement & Emotion. Nail them & it’s a slam-dunk.
