Why do you work here?
My organs weren’t regenerating quick enough to sell on eBay. To be fair, though, it’s also a pretty awesome place to work. The guys built the business from the ground up, and so inject their personalities into the office. It means they work with the Giants to make Sleeping Giant Media the best version of itself, whether it’s putting in a ball pit, or improving company processes to make things easier. It means we attract some fantastic people, who both know their sh*t and brighten up the working day.
What do you do at work each day?
Whinge when there aren’t enough snacks. Rejoice when the snack cupboard is filled up. Refrain from eating all the snacks. In between snack time, I manage a team of incredible people who keep the office side of things running smoothly, while I try to empower, engage, and better the working lives of the Giants.
What excites you about digital?
Filters. But digital is a part of a much wider world that is moving so quickly. As soon as you’ve mastered something, the knowledge is obsolete, and so it’s an ongoing battle to keep the best and most up-to-date knowledge you possibly can. My favourite part of digital is watching these amazing people master a subject again and again. Topping up their knowledge with new algorithms, new tools, new processes – all of this just so they can provide the best for the businesses and the people we work with. It’s truly fantastic.
