Where are you based?
What job do you do?
Marketing Manager at Panda Life Ltd.
How did you get into marketing/communications?
I started as a marketing apprentice at GetTaxi (now Gett) in 2013. From my first day, I knew that this was what I wanted to pursue in my career.
What are you most proud of in your career as a marketing/communications professional?
Unexpectedly seeing a random person walking around with one of the products that I’ve designed in their hands. Also, seeing artwork that I’ve worked on at bus stops and taxis.
How has marketing/communications helped the organisations you’ve worked for?
For Panda, I’ve been here from the start. When the entire company was just an idea. The power of different marketing methods has helped us communicate the benefits of using bamboo. Especially at the beginning, we invested a lot of energy into educating our customers as not everyone knew of the bamboo fabric.
What challenges have you overcome on your professional journey to where you are today?
Working on many different pieces of artwork at one time, whilst managing upcoming campaigns.
Do you have any words of wisdom for someone starting out in the marketing/communications industry?
Make sure you love what you do and always strive to learn more.
