What is your role at Aqueous and what does that involve on a day-to-day basis?
I’m Marketing Manager for Aqueous Digital, which primarily involves devising and overseeing marketing strategy, communications, and overall advertising and promotional activity for the business.
I really enjoy running campaigns.
Tell us about yourself?
I grew up in south Manchester, but I now live in Northwich, Cheshire with my partner, 10-year-old daughter, and 21-year-old stepson.
I recently completed a degree-level qualification in management to become a CMI Chartered Manager
If I ever went on Mastermind (which is unlikely), my specialist subject would be 70s and 80s hard rock and heavy metal!
What do you do for fun outside of work?
I enjoy road cycling, and I’m a member of Runcorn Cycling Club, but my favourite past time is going to live rock gigs and festivals.
I also like to be creative and make things. I’m a keen DIY enthusiast and have recently got into building electric guitars too.
Who inspires you and why?
From a business perspective, I’d have to say Steve Jobs, he was a superb forward-thinking and visionary marketer. From a personal perspective, I recently finished reading rock singer, Bruce Dickinson’s autobiography. His positive upbeat approach to life, really inspired me, especially the theme that ran through the book, that nothing you learn or experience in life is ever wasted. So true!
What’s the best thing about working at Aqueous?
I really admire the enthusiasm, drive and passion of my teammates. Our ethical approach to business and our focus on caring for the wellbeing of our staff also makes me feel good about working for such an amazing company with a bright future.
Are there any interesting facts about you people might not be aware of?
I once got invited to Kirstie Allsopp’s house and we chatted about litter and social media over coffee! Also, back in the 80s when I was a teenager, I did some professional stage acting alongside Brenda Blethyn at The Royal Exchange theatre in Manchester.
