Sanjit has worked in a variety of senior marketing, publishing, fundraising and development and comms roles with and for organisations like Telegraph Media Group, TalkTalk, Creative Nation, Dentsu Aegis Network (Aegis Media), Tiscali, Havas Media, Vivendi, The Millennium Commission, Conran, NGOs and not-for-profits.
Sanjit currently works with Talawa Theatre Company, one of the UK’s most respected and pioneering theatre companies. See Sanjit’s LinkedIn for more on his experience in brand marketing and development strategy.
Sanjit is one of 40 ground breakers using culture and creativity to make a difference in society; primarily using performing arts as launchpads for wider conversations on issues which affect all of society and yet exclude many parts of it. The results are documented in Equal Stages: Standing Up for Identity and Integrity in the Performing Arts.
Sanjit has also featured in The Stage, discussing, among many subjects, audience development and the importance of deep listening. Sanjit has also written about Audience Development here, and contributed to a book on developing audiences from print to digital here.
In his spare time Sanjit created and managed a local forum on Facebook, previously chaired and shaped the creative direction of an arts festival extending its reach into new audiences, participation and variety, and building partnerships with arts institutions like Goldsmiths. Some of that is captured in the Hill Talk podcast, here.
Sanjit’s series of podcasts ‘Telling it like it is‘ have offered space for people to explore ideas like History, Technology and ‘Home’ and have featured luminaries like Professor Corinne Fowler, Ian Douglas, and Chinonyerem Odimba.
Alongside these activities, Sanjit also set up and advised on the management of various charities and social businesses and mentored others through their development.
Sanjit’s interests are wide, and in no particular order he writes about culture, communication, marketing, media, food and ideas.
