Hello Tabby, let’s start with how you got into PR…
I’d love to have a really interesting story like everyone else. The reality is that I studied Fashion Marketing at university, thought I’d try out a few different internships and the first happened to be in PR. Four years, a handful more internships and two permanent roles later and it’s safe to say that that first internship had a lot to answer for.
What excites you most about your job?
I love that I’m lucky enough to bring my hobbies outside of work into my day-to-day role. Whether that’s flicking through fashion shoots, managing social media accounts or trying the buttermilk pancakes at every restaurant in London, it’s hard to get bored in a job that consists of what I would be doing for fun otherwise.
Describe your happy place?
My answer to this question should probably be something like an edgy, up-and-coming city, but the reality is my bed. Not sorry.
What makes Little Red Rooster different from other PR agencies?
PR often gets a bad rep as a fluffy job (understandable based on the pancake reference above) but I think anyone who’s spent any time with any of the Little Red Rooster team can vouch for how hard we work. Results are always promised, and everyone is dedicated to working until they’re exceeded.
What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?
I have asked around the coop for some words of wisdom and the great Francesca Stewart has advised to “work hard, play hard”. She would like to clarify this is not a direct quote and was coined in the late ‘00s by David Guetta, Ne-Yo and Akon.
Describe your work wardrobe?
Do you have any advice for someone wanting to work in PR?
Intern as early as possible. I got sick of lecturers constantly saying this at uni but getting experience under your belt and gaining contacts as early as possible is invaluable. My manager at one of my first internships then went on to offer me my first permanent role elsewhere!
Choose your last meal and dinner guests…
Anyone who knows me will know the answer to the second part of this question – Harry Styles. Other than him, I’d probably be boring and just invite my family and best friend and the menu would be a Boxing Day-esque buffet of the below beige foods:
- Halloumi fries
- Onion rings
- Curly fries
I’d die bloated but happy.
