Meet our new office manager, Alex


What was your dream job when you were younger?

I only ever wanted to work in an office environment.  As a kid my make believe play was setting up a variety of offices. I always wanted my own desk and a stationery cupboard!


How did you end up on your current career path?

My chosen career was in HR which came from studying Business and Finance at university.  As my priorities have changed over the years my primary aim is to be in a job which makes me happy, is interesting and varied, which keeps me close to home for my young family and is working with a great team of people – all of which are ticked being here at Skout.


What’s the best piece of advice you have ever been given?

Don’t moan and complain about something you have the power to change –  change it.


If you won the lottery, how would you spend it?

Travelling to all the countries on my bucket list – in style.


What’s the worst job you’ve ever had?

Being a silver service waitress in a hotel – I wasn’t very good at it!

If you were an animal what would you be and why?

A dolphin – I love swimming and being in water – this is where I am most relaxed.


If you could, would you live forever and why/why not?

No, not to be too morbid but if I was the only one living forever I would eventually loose all my loved ones who did not have the same “super power”.


Who are your top three dream dinner party guests?

My husband Rob and a couple of good friends.  I don’t think you should meet your idols as I think you would only be disappointed when they’re not how you see them on TV or in films!

What role should social media play in this election?

Over six million people tuned in to watch Corbyn and Johnson go head to head in the first debate of the upcoming general election. But it wasn’t just what the two political parties were doing on camera that got the public’s attention. The Tories came under fire for renaming one of its Twitter accounts a […]

Why SMEs should be surfing the podcast wave

In the not so distant past, the Skout team were visited by an agency which specialised in different methods of broadcast, and this got our cogs turning. Over the past few years, the popularity of the podcast has grown tremendously. Apple alone reported an increase of over 200,000 podcasts since June last year; and now […]

Get in touch?


Marketing has come a long way from the traditional approach of single channel strategy.
