Join us as we meet comedian and broadcaster David “Sideman” Whitely to discuss his experience and advice on speaking your truth and dealing with adversity – something most people will experience whilst at university, when meeting new people from different backgrounds and starting out in your career.
Sideman was praised for quitting his presenter job at BBC Radio 1Xtra in protest at the use of a racial slur on the network. He’ll share what he’s learnt about voicing your opinions whilst remaining positive and professional, as well as his tips on how to deal with set backs and become more resilient in the workplace.
Since leaving the BBC he has taken up new roles and is currently the co-host of the first Amazon Original podcast in the UK, Amazon Music’s +44 Podcast, where alongside Zeze Millz he talks about the biggest stories and trends in UK Black music and culture.
