Interview

When and how did you get your start in marketing? 

I joined MVF in 2014 after university and working for a year in procurement and business support for Serco. An absolute blessing to move into marketing at the right company, but the real kick-starter was realising I could align marketing with my strengths in data and analysis!

 

What do you love about your role? 

I get to work with and learn from amazingly smart people who are innovative, autonomous and driven to succeed, especially within my team.

 

What’s a mistake you’ve made at work, and how did you deal with it?

Plenty! People management mistakes are always the ones that hurt the most as it affects more than just the profitability of the company. I just try to ask what I could have done better and make sure I listen and act on the answers in the future.

 

What do you like most about using Iterable?

I love the continual growth of product innovation and integration with other partners—gives us space to grow in the future.

 

How do you plan to leverage Iterable in the future?

As our workflows become more complex, we would love to utilise dynamic snippets to create the entirety of our content, with the decisions as to which snippet to be used made using automated logic from our internal MVF data.

 

Besides Iterable, what are the other tools in your marketing toolkit? How are you leveraging them?

Many! In CRM we use SparkPost for email sending, Twilio for SMS and Kickbox for email validation, amongst others.

 

What advice would you give your high school self? 

Don’t worry about not knowing what you are going to do in the future—invest time in learning many things, and you’ll work it out. Also, do Maths, not Economics, at University.

 

What is one goal you’d like to achieve in your lifetime?

At some point, I would like to be applying my skills towards the climate emergency and making a significant difference to it.
