Everything you need to know about How Very Productions

Daisy Smith – Producer

I have a varied past including riding for England, studying to become a Barrister, working in sales, marketing and predominantly in events. I have never been able to give a straight answer as to what I do until now – I am a fixer! The person to ask when you need something done! Now, I am doing it all and loving it! (Well, not the Barrister bit. I realised I actually just wanted to be Erin Brockovich or even Julia Roberts) Producing uses all my skills and I love seeing a fantastic production take shape before my eyes. And what makes me think I will make it a success? As the famous quote says, “Because I am crazy enough to think I can.”

My aim: To produce great works – musical theatre, tv shows, plays. To put together unquestionably talented teams to create really great work. Daisy 🙂
