Digital Consultant at BBC
Esra Dogramaci is a digital consultant at BBC World Service. Described by a senior BBC Editor as a 'social media thoroughbred', she lives and breathes digital (and did so, even before it was cool). With a background in politics and international affairs, she works across news and current affairs, especially how they relate to a digital, younger, international audience. Her recent focus has been leading a team that looks after 20 different language YouTube channels, and she has been leveraging that experience for video across other social platforms. Previously, she was a new media analyst at Al Jazeera in Qatar and Turkey, and even prior to that, at UNICEF Turkey and UN headquarters, working in communications. She has received a B.S. in Political Science from the University of Wisconsin-Superior, M.S. in International Affairs and Public Policy from Bilkent University, Ankara, Turkey, and M.S. in Politics & Communication from the London School of Economics, as a Chevening Scholar. She is also a former national athlete, having represented Australia in ice hockey.
