NEP Bow Tie’s Jeremina Akrofi-Daniels, Multi-Skilled Operator Shortlisted for 2023 Rise Award

NEP Bow Tie is proud to announce that Jeremina Akrofi-Daniels, Multi-Skilled Operator, has been shortlisted for a Rise Award alongside three of her colleagues across the NEP Group network.

Rise is a charity organisation advocating for diverse and gender balanced workforces in the broadcast industry. The Rise Awards is an annual event recognising and celebrating outstanding women working in media tech/services.

Following the announcement of NEP UK’s Markela Deverikou, Guarantee Broadcast Engineer, winning the Production Support Engineer Award at the Rise Awards 2022, NEP is delighted to make a return to this year’s ceremony with a record of four of its women shortlisted.

Jeremina Akrofi-Daniels, Multi-Skilled Operator at NEP Bow Tie, has been shortlisted for the Rising Star Award.

Jeremina is an exceptional individual whose contributions to the broadcasting field have demonstrated extraordinary early and ongoing achievement, a sustained and positive impact on her profession, and a clear trajectory of increasing responsibility both internally and externally.

Jeremina's journey in broadcasting began when she was just sixteen years old, showcasing her passion for music and entertainment through presenting and producing for Reprezent Radio, which was known as London's leading youth-led radio station at the time. What started as a hobby quickly evolved into a profound commitment to broadcasting as a platform for informing,inspiring, showcasing talent, and interacting with audiences. During this period, Jeremina immersed herself in learning the fundamentals of production values and broadcasting regulations.

Over the years, Jeremina's dedication to the field was evident as she pursued additional radio production courses, such as Capital Xtra Music Potential.

Upon graduating from university, Jeremina made the decision to pursue broadcasting full-time, a choice that has undoubtedly enriched her career and the profession as a whole. She seized opportunities to expand her skill set further, demonstrating an exceptional ability to adapt and grow within the field. Her journey took a significant turn when she participated in a 5-day radio course with the Prince's Trust in partnership with Bauer Media at Jazz FM station. This experience not only allowed her to hone her skills but also opened doors to connect with industry professionals.

It was through the Prince's Trust that Jeremina was introduced to NEP Bow Tie, where she has been an invaluable asset for the last four years. During her time at NEP, Jeremina has continually pushed her boundaries and expanded her capabilities. She started off in the business utilising her skills primarily on AV juggling a variety of events across a large estate, moving onto Committee microphone operation, then more recently being trained to operate cameras for Chambers.

Jeremina quickly adapted to the technical aspects of broadcasting, particularly in camera operation for high profile environments, even when it was entirely new to her.

She was involved in supporting the technical side of the interview process for recruitment, re-assuring candidates and guiding them on the technical tasks where needed. She then took on the role of assisting in the training of new starters and proved to be a valuable mentor.

Jeremina has been shortlisted alongside three of her colleagues across the NEP network, including:

·        Helen Jeffrey, International Sales Director at NEP Connect – shortlisted for the Sales Award.

·        Kathleen Gray, Senior Broadcast Engineer at NEP UK - shortlisted for the Production Support Engineer Award.

·        Swetha Sridhar, Software Application Engineer at NEP/BSI - shortlisted for the R&D Engineer Award.

NEP is incredibly proud of these women and wishes them the best of luck at the Rise Awards ceremony on 7th November. We look forward to a night of celebrating the best of women in broadcast!
