Agency Focus: What makes me click

Jeremy Shakerley, projects director, UKS&V

I kick started my career in production at the BBC as a floor manager working on live shows such as Wogan and Blue Peter. This led me into the world of corporate live events and UKS&V. 18 years on, I have project-managed and produced everything from perfume launches for Estee Lauder to international road shows for British Airways.

My current favourite website is the microsite for the Audi R8 supercar, because of its ability to fully immerse you in the brand and you get to interact with the car in a fun way - oh, and how I wish I could have one ...

Second is a site called Bog Sports, which is for outdoor enthusiasts of all kinds. Not only does it sell sports kit, but it also connects like-minded outdoor enthusiasts to each other to share their experiences.

My third website is a venue-finding site, which is easy to navigate and you always get a swift reply. This one is called venues.org.uk and it has already been listed by The Independent in its 101 most useful websites.
