Meet the Skout: Honor

Why was PR your chosen career? 

PR is all about storytelling, with so much opportunity for creativity and content creation. Since I’ve always loved writing and always had a big imagination, I thought that PR would be the ideal career to channel my creativity. I’m all about communication, and PR really allows you to foster meaningful relationships. I’m already learning new things every day – it’s an exciting and rewarding career path for sure! 

If you hadn’t chosen a career in PR what would you be doing?  

Most likely travelling through Southeast Asia on a journey of ‘self-discovery’, riding a few elephants here and there in Thailand and braving the hostels in Cambodia. Who knows, maybe I’d have found inner peace on my travels. Most likely not, though.  

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

“If it’s out of your hands it deserves freedom from your mind, too.”  

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

I would splash out on a big mansion and host parties to rival that of The Great Gatsby. It would probably be a better idea to invest my millions or give them to charity, but unfortunately, I think I’d spend it all much too quickly.  

What’s the worst job you’ve ever had?  

Starbucks – there’s only so many caramel Frappuccinos you can make before you begin questioning life.  

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

A miniature sausage dog as I just know that I’d be treated like royalty and probably get my own Instagram.  

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

Definitely, I’d love to experience all the new technology – flying cars, virtual reality, hoverboards, etc. Staying young (and beautiful, obviously) would also be a plus.  

Who are your top three dinner party guests?  

Lady Gaga, Alison Hammond, and Nessa from Gavin and Stacey. Three absolute cultural icons if you ask me.

Has the conversation around tech always been so negative? Maybe it’s just me, but it seems that every second headline I read about tech today is just doom and gloom. The excitement around AI has been drowned out by the fear of it. “Is it going to steal my job?” “Is it going to destroy the education system?” “Is it...
