Recently I celebrated 10 years with Creative Activation and a friend commented – “that’s a long time, you must really like it there.” Which got me thinking about why have I have worked here for 10 years, when I often meet people who stay in roles for a couple of years before moving on.
I think one of the great aspects of my role is that I get the best of all worlds – retail activation, client service and field marketing. Whilst my days of working at Coles are behind me, what I learnt while working there for nearly 10 years has served me well over the years. Managing budgets, customer service, account management, achieving targets and working in a team are all skills that are invaluable in my role.
But at the end of the day, it’s all about the people. Aside from the opportunity over the years to work across many retail sectors and categories, the reason why I’ve been here 10 years is because I work with awesome people who genuinely are passionate about one another and the results we get for our clients.
