Jamie Anderson: Managing director of Anderson Entertainment

My NativeAdVantage:

Bio:

Jamie Anderson is the younger son of the late Gerry Anderson - the man behind cult TV shows like Fireball XL5, Stingray, Captain Scarlet, Space: 1999, and of course Thunderbirds.

Jamie had always wanted to follow in his father's footsteps since an early age - spending huge amounts of time with Gerry at Pinewood Studios and Cosgrove Hall in Manchester when he was growing up. Now, as managing director of Anderson Entertainment, Jamie is the man tasked with keeping the Gerry Anderson legacy alive, but also developing Gerry's unfinished works.

Jamie was the driving force behind Anderson Entertainment's highly successful Kickstarter campaign - which raised funds to complete and publish Gerry's final novel "Gemini Force One". The campaign caught the attention of top International publisher Orion books, who went on to sign a three-book global publishing deal for the series.

Jamie continues to work on development of Gerry Anderson's unfinished literary, film and television projects. Having lost his father in 2012 to Alzheimer's Disease, Jamie is also a celebrity supporter of Alzheimer's Society - regularly speaking at events, and helping to raise much needed awareness and funds. He also continues in his father's footsteps by supporting the International Rescue Corps as their vice-president.

What do you do best?

I think one of my real strengths is in being able to find the right people and resources to being an idea from something in my head to being something tangible and real. That process can sometimes be very challenging, and I am lucky to be blessed with the right mindset to bring things into reality.

What makes you the best?

The best? It doesn’t feel very English to talk about that kind of thing, but I think that is part of being successful at anyway… the balance of self-belief and self-doubt. Too much of either and you can become arrogant or descend into a pit of despair; but I think I am lucky again to be in the right range – in the middle!

How will you stay the best?

I keep reading that the true meaning of success is making it from failure to failure without faltering, but I think there’s more to it than that. My main aim is to keep doing what I love and what I think is right, and not constantly attempt to keep everyone happy – whether that means executives or my audience. If I can do that, then I think I’ll have a better chance of doing my best.

What are your aspirations?

Personal: To keep learning new things! I can’t think of a worse way to waste the precious time we have on Earth than to keep doing the same thing. Learning and experiencing new things – languages, sports, dancing, travel – is so important, so I want to continue to learn/try something new every year.

Business: To entertain people and make them happy! If I can achieve just 5% of the level of success that my late father managed, then I will be very happy indeed. He changed millions of lives for the better through inspiring and entertaining generations. What a great legacy to leave behind.

What fascinates you?

Life! The universe! The whole of existence is so fascinating and compelling. In particular I’ve always had been fascinated by the human body, and especially the brain – in its working and damaged states: so I read quite a lot of neuropsychology books and papers.

Favorite Motto:

Dad’s saying about work and creativity: Do what you love. Don’t try to please everybody or you’ll end up pleasing nobody. If you do what you love and do it well, then hopefully other people will love it too.

Favorite People:

Anyone who makes a positive impact on the world – through charity, entertainment, sport etc.

Favorite Places:

I love being at home – I have a wonderfully peaceful garden which is a great place for quiet contemplation, writing, and de-stressing! But I’m also very fond of Paris in the winter.

Favorite Products:

My MacBook Pro and FitBit are my current ‘Couldn’t do without’ products.

Current Passions:

Technology, health, science (particularly biology and psychology), Doctor Who, philosophy, and animals (I have four dogs!).
