Mikey and Karen on SBS, BuzzFeed and diverse careers

Join us for this lunchtime event as we explore two fascinating careers with guests Karen Ashford and Mikey Nicholson.

Karen Ashford is Flinders University’s Director of Media and Communications. Her journalistic career has spanned radio, television, print and online reporting, a stint as a government media adviser, and establishing a communications consultancy. She was an award-winning correspondent with SBS.

Mikey Nicholson is Social Media Manager with 7 News Adelaide. He also spent time with SBS, and BuzzFeed Australia and 891 Adelaide. A few years ago, Mikey watched a helluva lot of movies as part of his fun project “365 films in 2014”.
