A former student from the University of Bedfordshire and Clearhead founding partner will lend his expertise to a national committee aimed at nurturing young talent in the creative industries.

Alex Lawrence, who graduated from the University in 2007 after studying Media Production, will take up a seat on the Royal Television Society (RTS) Committee, a charity that aims to promote the creative industries amongst young people through awards, workshops, careers fairs and bursaries.

“My role with the RTS fits in perfectly with my ambition to be a mentor and nurture the talents of others. I want to be able to give people hope and something to aspire to, and the RTS means I can do that on a larger national scale,” said Alex, 31.

Born and bred in Luton, Alex is the Founding Partner and Chief Creative Officer for Clearhead, a content creation agency which he set up with childhood friend and fellow Bedfordshire graduate Gavin O’Brien.

Alex is keen to show young people in Luton that they can follow their dreams and stay in the town as he has done – Clearhead, based at the Hat Factory has grown from strength to strength since its creation.

The team now have offices in London and New York and the business will celebrate its tenth birthday next year.

“Luton isn’t a place that people need to escape from. It’s one of the best positioned towns in the country. Young people don’t need to go to London to realise their dreams. I want to show them that they can do it right here in Luton,” said Alex.
