Podcast interviewee


We think the best way to inspire is to tell the stories of women working in tech and design at all levels of career and experience. By sharing your work, ideas, advice and best of all your love for what you do we know women will feel engaged and empowered or just have fun listening.

The podcast takes an free-form interview format and will last around 25-30 minutes. The tone is light, down-to-earth and conversational. It's an interview but it's not a serious one. It's about your personal journey, what you like, what you've done and what's next.

The interviewer is Keri Lambden, Senior Member of the Web Heroines team, a designer and entrepreneur working in web and mobile www.kerilambden.co.uk with a passion for engaging more women with design and tech.

More on the format
If it's possible we'll most likely come to you. We will need a very quiet space with no interruptions. Or we'll hire a studio or find a quiet space. If it's not possible to meet you then we'll use Skype to chat over the internet and provide you with a microphone if you need it.

We'll introduce you first and give a short background into who you are and how you are involved with tech and design (this may be recorded after the interview), then we'll get into the conversation.

There will be a set of loose questions or rather jump-off points to guide the conversation which we will discuss with you in advance. We'll also research you as much as possible and get our facts straight before we hit record.

 

The types of questions we'll ask are:
• How you started out/ how you got into tech/design
• Challenges you've faced
• We may pick out quotes from your blog or other interviews and ask you to elaborate on those.
• About the products/books/projects you have worked on related to tech and design giving you the opportunity to tell our listeners about what you do. It can be a plug but we don't want the podcast to cover it entirely, that's not what we're about.
• Ask your opinion on subjects close to what you do
• Your dreams, plans and ideas for the future

Then we'll go back and edit the recording adding the Web Heroines theme music and credits. We'll send you the final edit for approval before posting our website, iTunes, Podcast.com and updating our email subscribers. We'll also send you a copy for your records/portfolio.

What we need from you
• A photograph of you or an image of a particular project.
• Links to any relevant blogs, social media sites and articles you're keen we read.
• How listeners can find out more about you either your website, Twitter etc.
• Dates and times you are available

 

What's next
We'll get in touch to arrange a date for the podcast either to meet in person or chat over the internet. We'll do some research and ask you to send us the things from “what we need from you”. Then we'll plan our questions and send you the list before hand. We may not ask all the questions on the list or in any order but it gives you a chance to prepare and add things you want to cover.

And finally a very big thank you in advance!
