Jacky Winter Gives You The Business is a weekly podcast about creative project management and production, and just making things happen in general.

The Jacky Winter Group is a creative production and representation studio based in Melbourne, Australia and New York City. What that means is that we represent creatives and connect them with clients who might be seeking their expertise, helping all sides to navigate the pleasures and perils of the applied arts.

What originally started as a business conference for artists and fellow creatives, is now being turned around to shine a light on our clients. From art buyers and creative teams, to fellow producers and managers, this podcast is all about offering a glimpse into the work we all do as the bridge between clients and creatives. It's an ongoing exploration of how to wrangle the creative process to achieve excellence, no matter what the medium.

Hosted by JW staffers Jeremy Wortsman, Bianca Bramham, and Lara Chan-Baker, JWGYTB will feature weekly discussions of ideas, issues, and insights into the people and processes behind the scenes that make creative projects of all shapes and sizes come to life, with perspectives from both our Melbourne and New York City studios.
