Victoria Beynon

“Life changing! After working 10 years in radio marketing, I took a leap of faith and started the Peter Swords King Course. It was the best decision I ever made. The Principle of BAMM, Mel, is knowledgable and insightful when it comes to working in the industry and on top of that, she is also one of the loveliest people I know. Both herself and Stacey (who is also wonderful!) made me feel so welcome. The tutors for each model on the course are second to none and all currently working in the industry. This kind of tutoring is priceless and you couldn’t ask for more. These have been the best 16 weeks of my life and I’m so excited to now take the next step knowing that Mel and all at BAMM are there to support me.”

Achievement: His Dark Materials, The Serpent, The Informer, Sanditon, Poldark, The Crystal Maze
