CJ Lloyd Webley
I am a Writer and Theatre-maker from Birmingham. I majored in Theatre and Performance Studies at The University of Warwick, and completed a Master of Arts in Creative Writing (Screenwriting & Playwriting) at City University of London. My play, Shadows, received 4 & 5 star reviews and sold out its three-night run at Theatro Technis, Kings Cross in 2017. Since then, I have had new work performed at The Birmingham Rep, Soho Theatre and the Brockley Jack Studio Theatre.
As the Founder/CEO of The Black Pounds Project CIC, I have supported over 100 businesses to access business or financial support. Alongside this I have facilitated Creative Writing workshops as part of my organisation Sorrel Park Theatrical, and online sessions.
It is my ambition to inspire the next generation of artists and entrepreneurs, particularly those from communities which are often deemed underrepresented.
I am a banking solicitor at Pinsent Masons, so I act for both borrowers and lenders on corporate finance transactions. I often work with the larger banks so hopefully I can recruit some mentors from both a legal and a banking perspective.
I am really keen to support the Black Pounds Project wherever I can.
