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…
  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
