1. How long have you been with Thompson and how did it come about?
“I have been with Thompson for about 3 years now. I started off at Brahm which is now known as Brass, then split off with my friend, Chris Skelton to set up our own digital agency called What Creative. It was a long road, but we reached a point where we needed to decide what we were going to do with the business; had we learned all we could have? Was it time to enter a new venture?
That’s what we ended up deciding to do, we joined forces with Thompson and have been happy families since.”
2. What is the biggest lesson you’ve learned since being here at Thompson?
“Woah, that’s a big question… I think with the work being a lot bigger made it that much more challenging. Then I realised that no matter what size of company they work for, or experience they might have, people are just people. And if you understand people and what makes them tick, then you can generate great work. Also, managing a bigger team has been really rewarding. You have to understand that everyone is an individual and everyone responds to everything differently.”
3. What is your favourite thing about working here?
“That I am surrounded by interesting and smart people. I really enjoy the mixture of skillset and the collaboration – we are all sat in the same space and that excites me.”
