Walk us through your average day.
At the moment it’s a little different because of lockdown. Usually my day would start with a bike ride to work, so I try and go on a run or do a virtual spin class in the mornings to wake up.
I then settle in to work. No two days are the same depending on what type of campaign I’m running and how far along I am with it, but it usually consists of client calls, team calls, lead generation, admin and a million micro-tasks. By lunchtime I usually collapse onto my sofa and watch a little trashy TV (Below Deck, Vanderpump Rules, Love Island – all of the greats). Then repeat all of the above for the afternoon.
Curveball: favourite movie and why?
This is a hard one! Definitely depends what kind of mood I’m in (I recently watched The Invisible Man – totally recommend if you want a good thriller!), but I would have to say the Lord of The Rings movies… They’re my comfort films and something I can go back to time and time again.
What is the most challenging thing about your job?
It’s trying to keep up with all of the plates spinning in the air – there’s a lot of different parts to a campaign running at the same time, so making sure everything that’s meant to happen happens can be a little stressful.
And the most rewarding part?
When a campaign ends with great results, and the client is happy. It’s also great to hear how well other people’s campaigns are going too!
If you were a wine, what would you be?
Definitely something fresh and bubbly! I would say a prosecco of some sort – not too fussy.
Pineapple on pizza: yes or no?
Do you have any hobbies? How do you unwind at the weekend?
This year has made me appreciate being outside as much as possible. I really enjoy cycling, running, and taking long walks listening to podcasts. I also love hanging out with my friends and going to the pub – can you classify the pub as a hobby?
What’s been your biggest accomplishment at Chief Nation?
I’ve got to say it’s been everything we’ve been doing with CEO.digital. It’s a great platform for senior execs where we share the very latest technology news and opinion. We work with big names like Dell Technologies, Citrix, Sitecore, Nutanix, Digital River and many more, bringing their keen insight to our community.
In the past year, we’ve worked hard to update CEO.digital, and have even launched our very own podcast series – which I highly recommend.
What’s your favourite drink?
I would have to say my favourite cocktail would be a Passionfruit Martini. It’s tangy, fresh and just so tasty!
