Describe what you do: I co-lead the Account Management department at BMF where I’ve been for over 8 years. Outside of departmental initiatives, I primarily lead the ALDI Supermarket account.

How do you like your coffee: Almond Flat White.

Device(s) you use: iPhone 11 and MacBook Pro.

Describe your working style in one sentence: Go with the flow – which is very hard to do for someone like me who requires routine and organisation – my son however has helped me to realise anything can happen at any point, particularly in advertising! So just roll with it and expect that every day will be very different.

What does your workspace look like: Simplistic (but mainly because there was limited desk choice out there once isolation hit!) But sometimes there’s too many colourful post notes dotted about the place. Iso living has taught me to rely less on paper and print outs (aside from the furious post note writing!) so it’s just me, my laptop and my Mother’s Day plant my son gave me.

Do you have a favourite playlist for work: Depends what mood I’m in, but my Friday playlist is a bit of Drake mixed with a bit of old school house mixed with a bit of Paulo Nutini.

Who would you like to nominate for the next workflow interview: My sister, Katie Salmaggi.
