It has been a delight to get to know Sam and work with Tern Heads for a couple of events. Sam is an inspiration to myself as a young creative and I am in awe of how she manages to juggle all that she does. Tern Heads has been a great platform to help me connect with industry and meet new creatives.
Sam is a delight to work with, always doing everything she can to help the next cohort of creatives land themselves in industry.

Great supportTern Heads was great support to our graduates, they took part in our industry week and careers activities we found the activities and the workshops to be informative, students loved taking part.
Wonderful ExperienceDemystifying the creative industries is so important and Tern Heads do so in such a fun and friendly way. With the help of a lots of emerging talent, they are building an accessible, generous and inspiring creative community with honest conversation at its core. I had a wonderful experience as a guest speaker on one of Tern Heads student-led online talks and can't wait to work with them again in future!
