Mel Hales is the founder and director of Rush Talent and Rush Talent Corporate.
Rush Talent represents a range of exceptional broadcasters, after-dinner speakers, event hosts and workshop leaders.
All of their presenters, speakers and workshop leaders are recognised for being innovators and pioneers within their chosen fields. Each is equipped with a wealth of knowledge and an abundance of charisma, always providing the insight, humour, authority or the expertise needed to bring an event alive. With a wealth of experience in Talent Management, Mel has managed the careers of a wide range of established presenters from top newsreaders to hard-hitting investigative journalists and established TV historians. She has worked across all of the top-rated broadcasters from BBC1 and Channel 4 to National Geographic and Sky Arts, including many independent production companies and in-house teams.
With a passion for British television and radio, in the time she is not travelling or enjoying the great London foodie scene, Mel is catching up on all the history docs, cooking programmes and fascinating stories told on the small screen. She believes that in Britain, we create some of the most outstanding factual programming in the world and is proud to be a part of this industry.
