Clear-Com EMEA Sales Director Accepts New Leadership Roles Within Rise Organization
As Chair of the Board, Nicki will be involved in the decision-making processes that go into program development, including networking events, seminars, the annual mentoring program, as well as overseeing the global advisory boards and business functions of the group.
A critical initiative from Rise, Rise Up, is an outreach program in UK schools to inspire and educate children about the various career opportunities in broadcast. As a STEM Ambassador, Nicki will promote Rise Up and the diversity of roles available in the broadcast technology and media sectors through regular presentations and careers networking sessions.
In early 2019, Rise Up introduced a series of workshops designed to give students hands-on experience with broadcast technologies while working alongside industry professionals.
As a Rise mentor and board member at that time, Nicki took steps to involve Clear-Com in this program and was overjoyed with its success.
“I’ve experienced firsthand what students can gain from the program and how workshops like these can impact young people deciding on a career path,” she commented.

“I was delighted by Rise’s request to become more involved with the next phase of Rises’ development. They have a truly unique vision, and I can honestly say that nothing like this existed until Rise put themselves on the map.”
