Francesca De Barr
Creative Project Manager
Francesca joined us from the Edinburgh International Television Festival where she worked for 3 years as Event Producer. She manages all Telegraph Hill’s projects and helps the founders run the business. When she’s not creating spreadsheets and improving processes, she writes music and watches TV box sets. Before finishing university with a first class degree in Media and Event Management, she travelled the world, worked as an Event Manager on tour with bands, and was a tea lady in a tearoom, perfecting the English scone. Once she had a job interview with the singer Adele. She didn’t get it, (whatever) but she’s not bitter.

Nicky’s background is in journalism where she’s spent the past seven years writing about everything from how to remove rotten toenails to high-octane sex, and all that’s in-between for publications like Cosmopolitan, Stylist, Men’s Health and MSN.

Most days you can find her on Twitter at @Peachesanscream. She likes to make things awkward.
