Chief Content Officer
Jamie Oliver Media Group

I am judging the Drum Awards because I am inspired by storytelling that moves people. I'll be looking for content that delivers satisfying narrative in innovative and emotive ways.

Zoë is responsible for all TV, publishing and digital content created by and on behalf of the Jamie Oliver Media Group. This includes all of Jamie's TV shows, books, magazines, You Tube and social content, mobile apps and web experiences. Zoë's background is in TV and radio where she first met Jamie working on the Radio 1 Breakfast Show before helping him establish Fresh One Productions. Zoë went on to executive produce most of the company’s food output including the Emmy award-winning Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution (ABC); Jamie & Jimmy’s Friday Night Feast; Jamie's 30 & 15 Minute Meals; Jamie’s Fowl Dinners and Jamie's Super Food.
Following the successful launch of the Jamie Oliver Food Tube Network, Zoë has been driving the digital content strategy and has more recently taken on a wider responsibility across the group, to bring together all content creation under her leadership.
