I’ve been at MediaCom almost all of my working life, starting out as a graduate 16 years ago. I’ve headed up the Business Science team for the last 6 years and I feel proud to lead such a talented group of individuals.
My days are usually varied and hectic! I always have a lot going on, so I’ll start the day looking over my to do list and planning what I need to do or prepare for the rest of the day. A typical day might start with a catch up with one of my direct reports. We have these every 2-4 weeks and we discuss how their client work is going, whether they have enough resource and how their teams are doing.
I spend a lot of my days in meetings with very different agendas. A lot of these will be internal, discussing how Business Science can help other teams within the business. Other times I might be discussing new tools and systems that the team is developing. Or I’m frequently involved in agency new business pitches, focusing on measurement and what outcomes our plans will deliver. Pitches can take a up a lot of time, but I get a real buzz from working on them as you get to work with the best people from all across the agency.
When I’m not in a meeting, I might be writing a proposal for a new client project, helping my team finalise a presentation for their client and of course doing a spot of admin here and there!
