1.How would you describe Ingenuity in just three words?

Bloody great FUN.

2.What has been a standout moment work-wise for you whilst working here?

I can’t pick one standout moment, as one of the great things about working at Ingenuity are the constant high points. The moment you have found out one of your agencies has won a new client, hosting a successful client event or even a fun night out with the team, you’re never short of special moments at Ingenuity.

3. What social or company party has been your fave and why?

The summer party two years ago at Teddington Cricket Club. Inflatable sumo outfits + alcohol is always a great time!

4. What book or podcast would be number one on your recommended list and why?

Mythos by Stephen Fry. If you’re looking for an accessible way to learn about ancient history and how it had an effect on today’s cultures and societies, it’s a must read (the audio book is great too!).

5. What do you enjoy doing when you’re not working?

As lots of people in the office know, I’m an avid gardener. There is nothing better than spending a Sunday afternoon in the sun listening to a podcast and doing a bit of gardening. It’s a fantastic way to relax.

6. Who would be your three ideal dinner party guests and why?

Liam Gallagher, Noel Gallagher, Joe Rogan. If there’s one person to get the band back together, I reckon it would be Joe.
