Laura: Workbrands' Marketing Manager
February, 2019

Welcome to Workbrands, Laura

We’re pleased as punch to introduce the latest addition to our Workbrands family, Marketing Manager Laura. Fresh off the boat from London, since moving to the West Country she’s joined an Intersectional Feminist Book Club (thus achieving peak Bristol).

True to our time-honoured tradition of grilling — ahem — getting to know our new recruits, we fired over a few questions . . .

 

Where are you from originally?

Bath. I know, I’ve wandered far and wide!

 

What do you make of Bristol?

I actually went to uni here, so it’s been a bit of a shock to realise there are other areas than just Clifton. I’m so excited to be back and rediscovering the (whole) city!

 

You’ve been given an elephant. You can’t get rid of it. What do you with it?

Why thank you! I welcome the opportunity to have it follow me around and pretend I don’t know what people are referring to. I’m actually now a bit sorry that this can’t happen.

 

What did you study at uni?

English Literature. I’m still hoping Old English will come back into use so I can break out my skills.

 

Coffee or tea?

Both, please. Let’s roll the dice . . .

 

Something you learned in the last week?

That a thing called ‘Sheese’ exists (it’s a type of vegan cheese). I wish I could unknow this.

 

What was the best thing before sliced bread?

Books? Or maybe gin.

 

So, what’s your favourite book of all time?

The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas. What a legend.

 

Would you rather look like a potato, or feel like a potato?

That depends: do potatoes suffer existential dread? They are exceptionally high achievers — what with crisps, chips, hash browns, salads — so it seems like they would . . .

 

What made you choose Marketing as a career?

It combines a lot of creative bits and bobs that make for a brilliantly varied job. Copywriting, strategising, Photoshopping, and, most importantly: a legitimate excuse to spend all day on Twitter.

 

What would your one superpower be?

To fly! I’d never take the bus again.

 

How old is the oldest cell in your body?

Can I phone a friend? No? Probably as old as me. I definitely did not just google this.
