  • What do you do for fun outside of work? I'm a qualified, but inactive football coach as I prefer to watch my two lads (Callum, 13 and Zac, 10) play, so I can concentrate my efforts and focus on helping improve them. I run 10km 6-7 nights per week and enjoy gym work and holidaying in my apartment on Murcia, Spain. In addition to enjoying regular trios to both my local pub and into the restaurants and bars of Warrington Cultural Quarter when myself and Kelly can get a night away from the kids.
  • Who inspires you and why? Sir Alex Ferguson. His passion and drive to be the best at everything he did was truly amazing. He didn’t care who got in his way of achieving his quest and took no nonsense regardless who it was from, his best player or the kit man. If they weren’t with him, they were gone. Simple.
  • What’s the best thing about working at Aqueous? Being an integral part of something that is amazing and helping drive the business from strength-to-strength as a director. It’s fantastic to see just how much the business cares for its staff and customers. It’s not just about money, but the way we operate results in us winning and keeping staff and business and therefore ultimately making more money.

Andy, Content Manager at Aqueous Digital

Andy

Content Manager

  • What is your role at Aqueous and what does that involve on a day-to-day basis? The title of content manager encompasses more than you might predict. In practice, it involves collaborating with a small and skilled pool of freelance writers to deliver the copywriting required by Aqueous Digital’s growing list of customers. That could include commissioning, writing, editing, mentoring and negotiating – a load of –ings, basically.
  • Tell us a bit about yourself? I wanted to be a journalist from as early as I can remember, and have a Newsround Press Pack T-shirt to prove it. I daren’t check if it still fits, mind. Given my role here is part-time, I still work as a reporter the rest of the week – mostly writing about sport and mental health. I am a podcaster too, as well as an active campaigner on issues related to mental health through my role as a media volunteer for Time to Change.
  • What do you do for fun outside of work? Music, music, music. I can’t play an instrument, mind! The pandemic has served only to remind me how much time (and money) I spent previously going to gigs, festivals and club nights in random warehouses. Linked directly to my time at university, I also remain hugely passionate about Spanish history and cinema.
  • Who inspires you and why? Jim Henson was one of my heroes as a kid, and he still is. Surely I don’t need to explain why? I mean, look at his gifts to the world. My sporting inspiration is Michael Johnson; I was athletics captain at school, and ran the 200m. I was also at my most impressionable while watching him do his thing at the Olympic Games in Atlanta, which probably helps. I’ve seen those finals millions of times.
  • What’s the best thing about working at Aqueous? When they say they care about the welfare of their staff, they mean it.
  • Are there any interesting facts about you people might not be aware of? I speak two other languages, Spanish and Italian, and spent time living in Madrid while I was a student. I’d dearly love to do so again, one day. What else? None of the sports teams I follow – Internazionale, New York Knicks or UCLA gymnastics – have any geographical logic whatsoever. But I’ll support them until the end. Oh, and I asked about lobbing eggs at politicians on a live broadcast of BBC Radio 4’s ‘Any Questions?’ once.

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.

  • Who inspires you and why? Not the usual celebrity or footballer, if anyone, it would have to be my father - as he’s shown me that patience is always an answer, and the way he’s been living and working day-in-day out for nearly 40 years, sets a good example to me.
  • What’s the best thing about working at Aqueous? Honestly, it would have to be the trust factor. When you know that each of us are all working with the same drive, it’s like cogs in a machine, where everyone has their part to play.

Head of Turf Management

  • What is your role at Aqueous and what does that involve on a day-to-day basis? Before becoming involved with Aqueous, I used to wander around the Beacon Beacons National Park munching grass all day. But then by chance, everything changed, after I was fortunate enough to be appointed as the official mascot of Aqueous Digital. Following a Zoom interview, where I demonstrated my extensive knowledge of digital marketing and agriculture, I landed my dream job and was promoted to the company’s Head of Turf Management. This was a massive confidence boost for me and I now take my job at Aqueous very seriously, that is, when I’m not horsing around in the field! On a day-to-day basis, my job involves maintaining the luscious green grass outside our Sutton Weaver offices to ensure that its always ranked number 1 on Google’s pasture search (GPRPs). I’m also Aqueous Digital’s spokesperson for fun topics and organiser of social events.
  • Tell us about yourself? I’m a Miniature Mediterranean donkey and I live at Good Day Out in Wales where outside of working at Aqueous, I help deliver unique experience days for good causes. As an attraction, we provide fun ways for people to easily engage with animals, wildlife, the countryside and rural skills, whilst helping the trainers to raise money for projects and charities. Every experience day and product purchased gives funds to a designated good cause whilst creating new employment opportunities and helping the local economy. Based in the beautiful Brecon Beacons, we focus on experiences with an environmental, wildlife, or animal-related emphasis.
  • What do you do for fun outside of work? I’m a bit of a foodie and like to eat stuff. Grass, hay and straw are my main signature dishes. I know that Search Never Sleeps, but I do. There’s nothing better than taking a nap in the long grass, especially when it’s a hot day and I’ve eaten too much hay!
  • Who inspires you and why? Sir David Attenborough is my hero. I love all the work he has done to raise awareness of wildlife issues and to encourage world leaders to commit to protecting the environment for future generations.
  • What’s the best thing about working at Aqueous? I love making the rest of the team laugh and cheering everyone up. Our values of Trust Loyalty and Collaboration (TLC) are really important to me, as well as our support of local causes and looking after the happiness and welfare of our staff.
  • Are there any interesting facts about you people might not be aware of? I turn 10 on my next birthday and was born in the same year that Aqueous Digital was founded. I was born on April fool’s Day and do like to fool around. In case you can’t tell from my accent when you meet me, I am Dutch, but have been living in the UK for a few years now.
