For anyone aspiring to work in production, what better way to find out exactly what you could be signing up for by getting to know what we do day to day? Each week, we will follow one of the team as they explain a day in their life. This week we got to know a bit more about who our MD Josh Wilson is, and now we can let you know what he does daily to keep Wilson Worldwide progressing.
I roughly get up at about 7:30, as after reading about other entrepreneurs I much prefer now to wake up naturally without an alarm and lay in my bed for a bit to relax and focus on the upcoming day. I then do the usual self care and stretches before thinking what I’m going to wear to wow my co-workers with my latest outfit. I then go to the tube (fully clothed at this point) for my usual 13 minute tube journey to the office. I check in with security downstairs and come up to the main room where I have a casual chat on anything topical with the development team and/or everyones evenings. I then check my tasks for the day and always prioritise closing current deals whether that be by phone or email.
During the Day (9:30-18:30)
My job is very very varied. My main goal is always to grow and develop the company and its projects. That involves meetings with talent, agencies, broadcasters and anything in between, liaising with production and/or development teams on current projects etc. I go on location sometimes but generally it’s not the most important place for me to be so it’s a rarity. I’m always working on making sure we keep people entertained and thinking with a constant new wave of content.
It depends on the day, but my usual routine is to either have a meeting with someone we deem as particularly helpful to grow with the company, and/or to go to the spa in my building for a long workout, sauna and jacuzzi. I’ve found it really helps me refocus for the next day ahead and allows me to focus my thoughts in a state of relaxation.
