Q. Tell us about your role at Ingredior and experience in the industry
I’m a QUT graduate with majors in Public Relations and Advertising. I might also have a Bachelor of Languages and Applied Linguistics from Griffith University kicking around somewhere. All of that converges here at Ingredior, where, as a Marketing and Communications Coordinator I help finetune the marketing visions of our clients. My background is in creative copywriting and media relations, which means I love a good, strong brand message. I also spend a lot of my time just being in awe of the skillsets of my colleagues, which takes up a sizeable portion of my day.
Q. How long have you been in the role?
We officially started Ingredior in July 2018, so this role has been effective since then.
Q. What do you enjoy most about being part of the Ingredior team?
Seeing strategy and execution click together so businesses thrive and shine is very satisfying.
Q. What’s the most valuable lesson you’ve learnt?
“To create a new standard, you have to be up for that challenge and really enjoy it.” – Shigeru Miyamoto
Is it pretentious putting a quote here? It is, isn’t it?
Q. What’s your favourite thing to do when you come home from work?
I like to open the fridge and stare blankly inside for a couple of minutes. Sometimes I make a snack.
Q. What show are you binging right now?
American Horror Story.
Q. If you had to listen to one song for the rest of your life what would it be?
Phil Collins – You Can’t Hurry Love.
Q. Are you a cat or a dog person? Why?
I’m a frog person. Those amphibious little critters melt my heart.
Q. Would you rather be able to speak every language in the world or be able to communicate with animals?
Fun fact: With a little determination, some genuine care, and a willingness to observe, there is no language you can’t become proficient in. Norwegian, Khmer, Auslan; they are all ready and waiting for you to excel in.
But have you ever tried telling a galloping herd of wildebeest to calm down?
