Describe what you do: I’m the Senior Client Partnerships Manager at Bauer Media Group, who recently merged with Pacific Magazines. The exciting part of my job is that I get to work on the large-scale, long-term partnership campaigns across the business. I get to see an idea come to life over a period, and work closely with clients to leverage their campaign messaging across our wide variety of content streams.
I am so lucky that I have been able to work with my clients repeatedly over the past few years, so they have very much become more like friendship than just a business partnership! Becoming part of the Bauer family has opened the opportunity to work across a wider network of brands including: marie claire, Elle, Gourmet Traveller, Harper’s Bazaar, Home Beautiful (to only name a few), making us one of the core media businesses around Australia with the largest female reach and network – which I am really excited about!
How do you like your coffee: Twice a day – a strong & skinny Cappuccino! Here is a shout out to the amazing team at Room 10 in Potts Point NSW who make THE BEST coffee in town – controversial I know, but it’s true!
Device(s) you use: I’m not the biggest techy, so my set up is basic. Usually on a day to day basis at work I use a HP laptop which makes it easy for me to be able to run to and from meetings & easily take notes, and answer emails. However, given we have all been working from home for the past few months, I’m working mainly off a larger computer monitor to help when working on those intricate excel docs.
Describe your working style in one sentence: Every day is rather structured and organised – working with a lot of clients means being organised is key, so a well ordered ‘to do’ list is vital to survive the day.
What does your work space look like: Not chic I’m afraid. My partner and I live in a small apartment, so we have currently taken over our dining table to create our current work from home desk spaces. I have one half, and he has the other! There are lots of cords everywhere, and it’s hard to keep neat. But I do have a nice peep of the city view from where I sit so it’s not all bad!
How does your workspace affect your creative process: I usually love to keep my workspace neat and tidy, when I have things all over the place I don’t feel structured or organised. Usually when my desk is a total mess it’s a reflection of where my head is at during a busy time at work. I really like to surround myself with images of my family and even just some inspiring fashion images that help to keep my head in the game!
Do you have a favourite playlist for work: I am currently listening to the Big Little Lies playlist on Spotify while I work – it’s the perfect mix of old and new very chilled background beats.
Who would you like to nominate for the next workflow interview: My best friend & long-time work colleague Courtenay McDermott!
