A day in the life of…. a Marketing Comms Associate.
As a marketing professional for a top global management firm, Olivia shares with us the many reasons why she loves what she does. There is never a dull moment for this VentureWeb associate, read on to find out more…
- What is it that you do, in a nutshell?
I split my time between internal and external services marketing, and global internal communications for a leading global professional services company.
- How do you get your day started? What do mornings look like for you?
I usually check emails on my phone first thing to see if anything needs urgent attention, then I go to the gym and work from home for the rest of the day.
- What does your workspace look like/consist of?
I have a small home office that I painted a wild hot pink (a colour I love). I usually work from there—unless its exceptionally cold—then you will find me warm on my bed with a blanket over me.
- How do you manage to stay motivated in your work day, given that you work remotely with no face time with your teammates & stakeholders?
I have been part of the same wider team since I started with VentureWeb in 2013, so luckily, I have made some close friends around the world that I can always count on for a pick me up when I need it. I have always been self-motivated and particularly good at getting in the zone and blocking out noise—my husband knows there is no use in speaking to me when I am in the zone as he will be completely blocked out.
- What would you say consistently takes up the most time in your work day?
Happy to say that this varies depending on the day—my role requires a lot of writing and editing, but it also involves a lot of campaign management and project management.
- Does this work suit your life? If so, why – what do you enjoy the most?
This work suits my life to a tee. I am happy that most days I get to be the one who fetches my kids, rather than spending lunch trapped in an office boardroom or a lunchroom. I love not having to commute—especially on rainy days—and I love being able to wear comfy clothes rather than corporate attire. Plus, I get to be part of an exciting global marketing team.
