Speaker Biography

Gemma Baxter

Step Change is a professional development programme run by the National Theatre and Royal Opera House, in partnership with Young Vic, BAC and Nitro. It is aimed at people who show great potential in the early-mid stages of their careers in performing arts management, but feel the need for a change in direction or responsibility. Gemma’s role involves brokering relationships between participants and their potential host organisations for secondments and potential mentors, as well as programming a series of training and networking sessions.

Prior to becoming co-ordinator in September 2009, Gemma was a participant on the Step Change programme in 2008-09 while working as Education Officer at the Royal Opera House. Through Step Change she was seconded to ATC where she set up their participation programme ACT@ATC.

Gemma also works for Garsington Opera as Education Manager, as well as being an accredited coach having trained with RD1st.
