IAMPRO: Eastenders’ Charlie Brooks talks new venture
Words: Sam Cook
Most of you will recognise our next interviewee for her antics as ‘Janine Butcher’ on Albert Square but now, Charlie Brooks has set about starting a new venture.
Co-founded by Charlie, iampro was created to make arts education accessible to all. The company want you to be able to access world class training from anywhere, anytime and to be able to set your own schedule and learn at your own pace. They to shake things up and transform the way creative education is delivered because classes shouldn't be expensive and only accessible from certain cities, passion and talent should be the most important factors.
The company is comprised of a team of performers, theatre and film makers currently working in the business for major organisations such as the BBC, ITV, Channel 4, SKY, HBO, Amazon Prime and the Discovery Channel. This means that if anyone’s knows what it takes to make it and how difficult it is to access high quality training and break into the industry, its these guys.
iampro offers a new, more inclusive route into the performance and production sectors and we promise to always bring you courses from the best in the business which are constantly evolving so you are always progressing and moving further towards your goals, whilst amplifying diversity, inclusion and equality within the creative world.
