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.

If you haven’t heard by now, Skout is under new ownership! No, we haven’t been bought out – in fact it’s quite the opposite. As of last week, Skout officially became an employee-owned business. This was achieved by the founding shareholders, Rob and Claire, signing 100% ownership over to a newly established Employee Ownership Trust acting on behalf of the...

A few weeks ago, the entire Skout team visited the beautiful and historic city of Palma, Majorca for our annual kick off event. It’s been a long time in the planning (pre-pandemic to be precise) and the first time we’ve been abroad for a kick off to the new financial year. We’ve always found kick off meetings a great way...

TikTok is increasingly being used as a platform for B2B companies to implement their marketing strategy, aiding in brand exposure, lead generation and profile building.

In May I was fortunate to be able to attend the recent UK Construction Week at Excel in London and see the strides forward an industry, that has become recognised as one of the biggest contributors to carbon emissions, is making in tackling the thorny issue of achieving Net Zero.

As a smaller business, it can be hard to know where to start when it comes to sustainability. Sure, we all do our best to use the right recycling bin at home, and bring our re-usable coffee cups to work. But with serious pressures now mounting from the government – which pledged to reach net-zero carbon emissions by 2050 –...

Another week, another round of mass layoffs in the tech sector. With Amazon (AWS) and Meta cutting thousands of jobs, and further layoffs at Salesforce and of course Twitter, it has felt a bit like the tech world has been imploding of late. This is of course concerning for us working in B2B tech PR, but more importantly for the...
