What is something about your job that most people wouldn’t know?
As project/account managers we take complete responsibility for every element of a project. From the creative thinking and the weekly WIPS to budgeting and developing as well as sending the parcels, packing the vans, picking up the litter and scrubbing down the BBQ.
What is the most unusual thing you’ve seen or done while working on an event/activation?
I once had to spend an hour in the surf at Surfers Paradise to assist a video shoot of the GC2018 Mascot Borobi who was attempting to surf. Knee deep became waist deep and eventually treading water. When the final edit was released it was less than 1 second of footage :/ !!!
Have you ever met a famous person while working on an event/activation. If so, who was it and what were they like?
The list is endless. Sport stars, singers, actors you name it. I was in the Royal Albert Hall in London once when several Premier League football players weren’t overly impressed I turned down a photo opportunity.
Robbie Williams and Justin Timberlake were characters but Ian Mckellan at an ATP Tour Final in London was the most interesting.
If you could swap jobs with anyone else in the company for one day, it would be Nicole Barnes.
Why? Her days of cable tying are long gone – no, that wasn’t a reference to her age.
If you had to pick a movie title to describe your job, it would be......
The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
Do you have a party trick? What is it?
No party tricks, I’m just thankful to be at the party = weekend off!
