Expertise: Property, FinTech, Government
Life before Thrive: Kicked off my PR career in London, first interning at the PR arm of an integrated creative agency that fellow Thriver Sarah Murray went on to lead (YOU Agency)! Then got my first full-time gig in a specialist B2B tech agency, eventually winding up at international firm Racepoint Global, working on the EMEA account for Huawei and other big consumer tech brands. Fed up with the dire weather, I hopped over to sunny Oz where I joined Horizon Communication Group, an independent agency specialising in Government Sponsored campaigns, on huge big ticket accounts for the Federal Departments of Education and Social Services ($1.5M+ projects). Soon fed up with the political bureaucracy, I jumped ship to Zeno - the sister agency of Edelman - to help grow the business and lead the small but mighty team on international and region-wide integrated comms campaigns.
Loves at Thrive: Well, my best friend works here, so that helped in the decision. But above all, the quality of the work and the talent - easily some of the best people in the business to learn from and work alongside!
