Our blog is an ever-evolving hub for useful ideas, new digital tactics and everything in between.
What’s your favourite thing about your job?
I really enjoy the exposure to all the different types of projects that we work with. It is great to work alongside people who are at the top of their game and driven to be the best in their industry. Collaborating with experts has been a truly enriching experience.
Why did you choose to work in this industry?
I have always been interested in the world around me. I studied Politics and History at University and became fascianted by to trying understanding societal change through time. This led me to a deep interest in how humans can shape the future. Then I discovered blockchain and I became amazed by the potential for change that this new technology can engender. EAK Digital gave me the opportunity to build on this in a proffessional environment. Public Relations allows me to be actively part of that technological and societal change and it thrilling to be part of.
What are the best skills that you bring to your job?
I would say I am very adaptable. I relish new challenges and enjoy being stretched and forced out of my comfort zone. This has given me the ability to take on any task that comes my way. I enjoy learning the limits of knowledge and want to constantly push those boundaries. This adaptability and a thirst for the new has enabled me to take on challenges which I otherwise may not have attempted.
As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I always wanted to be an explorer. There world is so big and I always wanted to see all its wonders and be the first person to discover a lost civilisatiion. I think my childhood diet of adventure stories built up some unrealistic expectations. Nonetheless, working in an environment as cutting edge as the one EAK works in has fulfilled many elements of that dream. Maybe not the discovery of a lost civilisation …. but the boundaries of technological advancement.
What 2 things couldn’t you live without?
Yorkshire Gold and George Orwell. I am tea addict and there is no better than Yorkshire Gold and Orwell’s clean and lucid prose keeps one sane in the ever changing world.
What’s your dream location to visit that’s on your bucket list?
Machu Pichu. I have long wanted to see that lost city…. too bad it has already been found!
What would be your personal motto?
The future belongs to us!
What publications do you regularly read?
The Guardian and the FT . I try to find good journalism from both left and right. The New Statesman and The Economist for long form media.
Finally, How would you describe your team at EAK Digital?
Everyone I have ever worked with at EAK Digital has been so helpful and insightful. It has made me feel confident in the work I produce and confident that we are able to get the best out of each other.
