Workflow with Lisa Teh, Founder & Director of CODI Agency

In this edition of Workflow, we have Lisa Teh, founder & director of CODI Agency, talking about juggling her own business and podcast, being easily distracted and her messy workspace.

Describe what you do: I’m the founder and director of digital marketing CODI Agency which specialises in brand amplification through organic social media management (LinkedIn, Instagram and Facebook), content creation (photography, videography and blog) and influencer campaigns. I’m also the co-host of business podcast Lick alongside entrepreneur Nick Bell.

How do you like your coffee: I prefer Liquorice tea! I still have it in my Sttoke reusable cup even when I’m at home because it keeps it hotter for longer.

Device(s) you use: iPhone X, Lenovo Yoga Laptop tethered to a big screen and Logitec webcam

Describe your working style in one sentence: Scattered – I’m easily distracted so I’m always trying to complete 10 tasks at once!

What does your workspace look like: Messy! Haha! I’m really messy so there are usually papers spread everywhere, but I’ve tried to make it look a bit cool so it keeps me motivated. I’ve also positioned myself where there is good natural lighting so my skin looks on point for video meetings (gotta focus on the important things! Haha!) and I’m lucky to have a beautiful marble fireplace behind me which is a great conversation starter for video calls.

Do you have a favourite playlist for work: I discovered one called Big On The Internet on Spotify, which has all the trending songs currently on the net, mostly songs from TikTok, so while it’s good, I’ve got to stop myself from doing the Savage dance at my desk. Haha!

Who would you like to nominate for the next workflow interview: My friend Mia Klitsas, the founder of amazing femcare brand Moxie.
