The B&T Women in Media Awards, presented by Are Media, are happening today – woohoo! And, to cap off a wonderful Women in Media series, we’re speaking with Seven network sales director Nat Harvey.

From her biggest learnings of 2020, to what she thinks about this year’s Women in Media shortlist and here hopes and aspirations for next year, here’s what she had to say:

Nat, it’s been an extraordinary year. What have been your biggest learnings over the course of 2020, personally and professionally?

Personally, the importance of human connection. Family, work wise, friends. Humans need other humans to thrive and to co-create happiness.

Nothing beats a face to face conversation with someone and sharing moments together. That goes for family, friends and colleagues.

Professionally…. communication and providing support/ enablement are the two most important factors for a leader.

We’re coming to the close of this year, to a time to recognise some of our industry’s best and brightest. When you see the professionals in the 2020 Women in Media Awards shortlist, what is your reaction?

That there were so many incredible women not on the list. I was thrilled to see so many women I work with on a day to day basis as well as have worked with in the past and I’m so happy to see them recognised in this way.

There are so many more incredible women in the industry that I think the list could have been triple or quadruple the size. That’s not a bad thing, I think we are just so lucky to have so many influential and brilliant women in the industry that getting it down to a handful for each category is a tough job!

What should the winners of this year’s Women in Media Awards represent?

Inclusiveness, commitment to the future of the industry, diversity of thinking. And specifically in 2020… resilience and empathy.

What are your hopes and aspirations for 2021?

A better year…. Better for my team, better for our partners, better for Australians. Sounds lofty going wide in terms of Australia but I genuinely want to see our communities near and far thriving, people in jobs, reduced mental health challenges for people both within and outside of our industry, a lot more positivity all round!

And what are your hopes for the winners of this year’s awards?

That they continue their passion for the industry and the people within it. That they continue to inspire others around them and continue to lead the way in creating a diverse and thriving industry.

The Women in Media Awards will be held virtually on Wednesday 28 October 2020.
