Here at Trinity, we’ve grown a working ensemble to shout about, and we’re firm believers in having cast members that inspire and drive us.
To celebrate International Women’s Day, we’re going to be highlighting a number of our incredibly talented staff throughout the day:
Name and position at Trinity?
Becky Waight, General Manager.
Who is your biggest role model?
There are some extraordinary women making huge changes at the moment, in lots of different areas. In recent times I have been particularly inspired by Gina Martin, Jameela Jamil and Michaela Coel. Closer to home, both of my grandmothers never cease to amaze me with their capability, good humour and determination.
What’s your favourite aspect of working at Trinity?
The people! We’re really fortunate with our team here at Trinity and I’m lucky to work alongside some fantastic colleagues.
How would the rest of #TeamTrinity describe you?
Probably loyal, organised and – I hope – good humoured!
What’s the one thing our Trinity audience might not know about you?
When I was 10 I had a short story published in a collection. There was a launch event and everything! Being a published author was always a dream of mine, one that I hope to achieve in adulthood as well!
How have you been keeping busy through lockdown?
As a member of the Trinity Senior Leadership Team I was only furloughed for a short amount of time, but I loved the opportunity to catch up on reading and I’ve always loved going for long walks – which were actively encouraged! There was also some extraordinary and brilliantly entertaining television during lockdown in the form of Queens Gambit, I May Destroy You, Bridgerton and It’s A Sin – and the NT broadcasts were a life-saver during the first lockdown.
What is the working highlight from your time at Trinity?
Just before we entered into the first lockdown Trinity hosted BBC Question Time. The entire process of getting them here took approximately 6-9 months and I project managed the entire process and event – which certainly had its moments! We received fantastic feedback from the BBC and the audience and – as one of our final events before lockdown – it ended up feeling very poignant.
