My role is about creating an environment that helps people understand why our product works and how it can actually help them. I'm super lucky, I get to work directly with HR leaders and businesses on their employee feedback journey, as well as keeping a foot in marketing and brand too.
How long have you got? 🤣 My career journey has been very wibbly-wobbly, having worked in different sectors and roles across sales, service, and marketing. Since my 20's I've had a strong passion for creating working environments that don't suck - a personal goal being to create teams that I wish I'd joined way back when. It's this passion that leads me to the HR and employee engagement space, and so it's a natural progression for me to land at an industry-leading business like the People Experience Hub.
Become an SDR. It's a bloody hard job, but I learned more in the 3 years I did that than I've learned in the rest of my career combined. You get to see the inner and outer workings of a business, will learn how to handle situations and challenges you never thought you could manage, and ultimately set yourself up for a really interesting career.
Hank Green. You might know him as one half of the Vlogbrothers (his brother John Green is also a legend), or as the founder of VidCon, or the Founder of DFTBA.com, or the founder of SciShow... or maybe even just from TikTok. I've been following him since the early days of YouTube, and his viewpoints on life, the universe and everything in it are beyond fascinating to me.
It's a bit boring, but Pizza - there are almost no bad toppings and I can think of very few occasions that are not made better by having a big cheesy pizza there. Lush.
There are so many that I could write a book (and I probably will one day), but there's a quote from one of my favourite movies of all time that has become kind of a mantra to me; "Be excellent to each other". Had to find better advice than this.
