Diversity and Inclusion

James Ulman -  Cloud & Tech Consultancy, MD OMG

James Ulman -  Cloud & Tech Consultancy, MD OMG

Q. How did you find out about the media industry and what attracted you to work in it?

I started as a freelancer working in TV production and left to work in online when a friend mentioned a role was going at a Media Owner, I needed a bit more security in a job! I didn’t actually know much about it at the time but it was right at the birth of search marketing and I was amazed at how fast things change in the industry, it’s a constant learning curve.

Q. What do you like about working at your agency and being part of the OMG, UK family?

Obviously the people, my team and colleagues are great but OMG has a real entrepreneurial side to it too – if you have a good idea then you can make it a reality.

Q. What is your take on what is being done to drive diversity in the media industry and across OMG, UK?

It’s a start is all I will say – there is a lot that still needs to be done to unravel years of doing things in one way – I am loving the momentum though and I feel OMG has the grass-roots of something which I hope will drive change.

Q. You are part of the OMG, UK Multi-cultural Advisory Board, why is this important to you?

I want to do something, I want to help with the changes. My children are mixed race and I want them to grow up in a world where this doesn’t affect them.

Q. What would you say to yourself if you were starting out in media knowing what you know now?

Keep on top of your learning, remember to have fun, and always treat others as you wish to be treated yourself!
