Meet Stand Agency’s… Miri Buac!
Miri joined Stand Agency a few months back as an Account Executive, and we thought it was about time she introduced herself. Miri stands out for her creative eye and ability to see the bigger picture.
How and why did you get involved in PR?
My first role in PR was during the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. It was an exciting time for London, and being involved in this international event was so rewarding. I got a buzz for organising campaigns, and knew PR would be the right way to put my creative eye to good use!
What attracted you to work at Stand Agency?
I think working within a great team is fundamental. On average, we spend more time at work than with our families, so I couldn’t have chosen a better bunch to be the next best thing.
What do you enjoy doing beyond the walls of Stand Towers?
When I’m out of the office I’ll either be lost in a crowd of people at a music event, watching a film or a play, or at an airport embarking on a new adventure. Experiencing new cultures excites me – whether that’s by listening to new music, watching contemporary theatre, or analysing the latest blockbusters – I’ll always read between the lines to find alternative approaches and meanings.
In another life, what profession other than yours would you have attempted?
Being Kim Kardashian, that’s a profession – right?
What pearls of wisdom can you impart to those embarking on a career in PR?
Look for stories in the least obvious places. Great ideas can come from watching TV, listening to the radio, going for walk, having a dream, or visiting the theatre. Always keep your eyes and ears alert – creativity never sleeps.
Miri’s S.T.A.N.D quick-fire faves:
Song – Anything Frank Ocean
Taste – Blueberries, who knew something healthy could taste so good?
Animal – Donkey
Noise – The sweet sound of music
Drink – G&Ts or Amaretto Sours, always plural
