Q&A with Ted, Head Of Business Development

Today, we talk with Head Of Business Development, Ted, to find out more about his job role at the PxHub and why he does what he does. Find out the best piece of advice Ted has been given.

What do you do for the PxHub?

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 did you get into doing what you do now? 

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. 

What advice would you give to someone starting out in your industry?  

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. 

If you could have dinner with one celebrity, who would you choose and why?

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, 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.

If you had to eat one meal every day for the rest of your life, what would it be?

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. 

What’s the best piece of advice you have ever been given?

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.
