HOW TO GET AHEAD: MY GURU - Emap On Air’s sponsorship executive Richard Jacobs nominates his former colleagues from Emap Metro

’In my professional life there isn’t simply one person who has influenced me over the years, but many people in many different ways,’ says Richard Jacobs of Emap On Air. ’When I first started with Emap Metro a number of years ago, I was reassuringly surprised by how many of the top positions were filled by employees only a few years older than me.

’In my professional life there isn’t simply one person who has

says Richard Jacobs of Emap On Air. ’When I first started with Emap

Metro a number of years ago, I was reassuringly surprised by how many of

the top positions were filled by employees only a few years older than

me.

Rowlands was a highly motivating factor and sent out the right messages.

I also need to mention my mum and dad, who over the years funded my

sticky transition from teenager to irresponsible adult and are still

always there to offer sound career advice.’
