What’s the first thing you do when you get to your desk?
Make a brew! And then check emails and Teams notifications.
What’s your go-to productivity trick?
I love a good list. It’s always satisfying being able to tick things off and see the progress being made at a glance.
What are your favourite ways to keep ahead of trends?
I like to follow industry leaders on LinkedIn and see the content they post. Prolific North emails are also a good way of keeping up to date with what other businesses are doing.
How did you get to where you are today?
Hard work and a couple of career changes –as well as Account Management, I also have experience in banking, marketing and communications.
What gets you out of bed in the morning?
The promise of a nice breakfast!
What song would you say best sums you up?
This is a tough one. Probably something you can salsa dance to, or something cheesy like some of my jokes!
Which Netflix series / podcasts / books are you currently hooked on?
Podcast – DuoLingo learning French,
Netflix – The Parisian Agency, (it boosts my French whilst I’m admiring all the fancy houses they sell).
Book – Derren Brown, Happiness.
Where do you look for inspiration?
Inspiration tends to just happen sometimes, but if I was to actively seek it out, Pinterest or going on a walk would probably do the trick.
Lastly, what’s your favourite dessert?
Ooh almost any! I’m a very fussy eater but much less so when it comes to desserts. Chocolate fudge cake or a crème egg is definitely up there though.
