For BCOMS Question Time Series, Nigel Wallace sat down with Michael Maynard, formerly of IMG. The Producer, Director, Writer, Sports Journalist spoke to us about his journey into the industry, how he keeps motivated, and his advice for young people looking to get into the industry.

With IMG Michael travelled the world as an associate producer, producing sports documentaries. Now he heads his own production company producing black focused dramas for a number of platforms.

He still has a keen interest in sports and although his journey in the media hasn’t always been easy, his experience provides a unique insight into navigating the industry.
