Meet the newest member of the Stand Agency team!

How and why did you get involved in PR?

My path into PR began with me setting up my own social media business, through that and being in the right place at the right time I was lucky enough to secure some work experience at Stand Agency. From that point one thing led to another and 9 months later I am now an Apprentice Account Executive!

Why did you join Stand Agency?

I joined Stand because I saw it as a great opportunity for me personally, both to explore an exciting new industry and to move to the big city. Stand has worked with me to ensure I’m happy and I’m really excited about establishing myself in a company that really makes a difference.

In another life, what profession other than PR would you have attempted?

I have a love for TV and in another life I would love to work in that industry – next David Attenborough maybe?!

What do you enjoy doing beyond the walls of Stand Towers?

I’m immersed in all things sports and film/television – If I’m not playing football then I’m out watching the latest movie or planning my next trip abroad!

What pearls of wisdom can you impart to those embarking on a career in PR?

Approach every task with 100% positivity and an open mind.
