Hi, I’m Lisa Ventura (MCIPR)
I’ve been writing ever since I was old enough to pick up a pen and put it to paper. These days I still write, but I put my fingers to the keyboard and type away furiously!
My career spans over 23 years in cyber security, technology, data, artificial intelligence, IT and business which coined me the nickname of “Cyber Geek Girl” when I was PR & Marketing Director at Titania Ltd from 2009 to 2012, and it is also the name of one of my blog sites.
I’m passionate about business, philanthropy and helping others. My writing and blogs are geared towards awareness raising of key topics and subjects that I have first hand experience.
In the early part of my career I spent seven years working with Chris Tarrant, the presenter of “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire” at his management company where I saw his career go from strength to strength when the series became a huge success.
The show was not just a huge hit here in the UK (it was regularly beating EastEnders in the ratings at one point and was the must-see quiz show of the late 1990’s) but globally too.
During this time I was involved in the launch of the Worcester Three Choirs Festival Fringe which first took place in 1999, and was the precursor to the now popular Worcester Festival where I live. It was this that sparked off my passion for festivals and live events.
Once I got the “bug” for festivals and events I was Chairman of the Worcester Music Festival from 2007 to 2009, and saw it grow from an idea to a full-scale event across the city of Worcester.
From this success I founded the Worcestershire Literary Festival in 2010. The first festival ran in 2011 and had over 100 events across the county of Worcestershire and it attracted high profile authors such as Sebastian Peake and Lucy Worlsley – the BBC TV presenter, historian and author.
