Here is the second post in our ‘learn more about the Open Comms team’ series. Following the post yesterday focusing on Tarina, see the same questions asked of our recently appointed Account Manager, Naomi Stafford:
How would you describe yourself in three words
Curious, reliable and organised
What do you most enjoy about working in PR
Securing fantastic results for clients! There’s no greater feeling then seeing a great piece of coverage and knowing that you played a part in making it happen.
What is your favourite book
The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini, a powerful book that had me riveted from the very first page to the last.
What did you want to be when you grew up
I’ve always had a passion for writing. I became a bookworm as soon as I could pick up a book, so as I grew up, I knew that I wanted to enter into a creative industry where I could use the written word. PR allows me to do just that!
What do you find most challenging about working in PR
In PR you have to juggle a lot of tasks, switching from one account to another throughout the day. This can play havoc with your mind sometimes!
If you could be anything else, what would it be (career wise)
I like nature and the great outdoors, so if I had to do anything else career wise, it would involve these two things. Ellie Harrison from Countryfile always gives me job envy!
If you had a super power what would it be
To turn back time, as there’s just never enough hours in the day.
What is your guilty secret (food / TV programmes)
I’m not sure whether I should admit this, but I quite enjoy watching Peter Andre My Life. It provides a great insight into someone who lives their life in the public domain and as I love learning about people, I find the programme hard to resist when it comes onto the television.
What are you most proud of
Securing my role at Open Communications. PR is a notoriously difficult industry to crack, so I was delighted when my hard work and passion paid off.
Which account would you most like to work on if you could choose
I have a real sweet tooth, so an account involving chocolate would be ideal. Although I’m not sure how good this would be for my waist line!
