Vicki Lee

Head of Broadcast & Content at Publicis Worldwide

Vicki Lee is a BADC hall-of-famer for a reason: she’s Queensland’s most experienced producer, having spent years in agencies, production companies and post-production in Australia and the UK. Basically, what Vicki doesn’t know about production isn’t worth knowing.

You as a Mentor

Why have you decided to become a mentor?

When I started it was a very male environment and there was not a lot of women to ask advice of. I sort of stumbled my way through until I got more confident in what I was doing and how I was doing it. There were a lot of very clever people I had the opportunity to work with and grow from. I have reached a level now that I think it’s time to give back to the next generations coming through.
