About Ben Carr
When did you start working at Sleeping Giant Media?
What’s your specialist skill or party trick?
Specialist topic? Plant care! Specialist skill? Woodwork! Party trick? Wiggle my ears!
What does your day job entail?
I research and develop parts of our company culture! One day I might research…
‘What would happen if we gave everyone a pet dinosaur?’
and the next day it might be…
‘What would happen if we took all of our staff to Ibiza?’ (Which we did!)
I’m also our Squadron Leader and am involved in our Diversity & Inclusivity team, our Green & Eco Team and our Social & Charity Team! I also happen to work on recruitment, HR, Mental Health & Wellbeing, as well as our day-to-day Operations, so gimme a message on LinkedIn if you have any questions!
What areas of digital marketing do you specialise in?
Sorry! Please take a number and wait at the back of the queue – one of our other incredible Giants will be able to help you in just a moment! I’m not a Digital Marketing expert and I won’t pretend to be. My strengths are found in organisation, adaptability and communication, which can make me a GIANT is its own right!
Why Sleeping Giant Media?
I’m a fun, extravagant and passionate individual, and so are they! It’s a good fit.
What’s your favourite part of working at Sleeping Giant Media?
I really like working alongside passionate people. Our culture allows people to not just be passionate about their work, but to also pursue charity work, help the environment or even have a say in the business ongoings. I enjoy seeing people grow as they learn about themselves and the business.
What’s one of your favourite campaigns or accounts you’ve worked on?
Taking all our staff to Ibiza for our 10 Year Anniversary certainly comes to mind, but I’ve also worked on some really cool events for staff and clients alike.
What about digital inspires you the most?
The educational tools it can provide you at a moments notice. I’ve learned how to change car tyres, how to fix a radiator, and even how to dismantle the government all from using digitally available tools and resources. Digitals’ strongest asset is its ability to communicate and educate.
Name a random fact about yourself…
You can talk to me about true crime or serial killers any day of the week and I’ll jump around like a dog let out in the garden.
