Meet the Skout: Rebecca

1. Why was PR your chosen career?

I was first introduced to PR when studying a BTECH in Creative Digital Media at college. This sparked my interest because it enabled me to infuse my writing skills with a big dash of creativity. After choosing this subject for my undergrad degree too, I knew that this would be my ideal career choice. (Also, Eddy from Ab Fab always seemed to have great fun in her PR role!)

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

Probably something outdoor related. I think I would be a professional rock climber or boulderer and take part in competitions to earn a living wage – however, I don’t think this would have ever happened. Realistically, I think I would be a dog walker or a vet as I am very animal orientated.

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

“Stop over worrying!” A good piece of advice that I really should listen to.

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

After giving my family and friends a good ‘chunk’ of the money, I would use the rest to tick off the items on my bucket list. This would include the Day of the Dead in Mexico, a bungee jump, learning another language and running the London Marathon.

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

Waitressing for a small coffee shop. I decided to wash the mugs in butter (by accident), which obviously meant there were many unhappy customers returning their oily coffees. Even now, I still can’t make a good cup of tea or coffee!

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

It sounds conventional, but I would be my dog. She is spoilt rotten and gets to nap for most of the day. Also, if I was a tropical animal or anything different, I would probably be unlucky enough to be trapped in a zoo or be eaten by predators.

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

In principle, this sounds amazing! I could do everything I wanted in life and more. In a thousand years’ time I would be the cleverest human alive. However, all my family and friends would not have the same ability and I can imagine the world would be a lonely place.

8. Who are your top three dream dinner party guests?

Stevie Nicks, Alan Sugar and Miley Cyrus.

As a content manager, much of my focus is on the written word. I grew up devouring newspapers, magazines and books and writing everything that happened to me in my primary school ‘news’ book each Monday. As putting pen to paper or finger to keyboard became my career, I evolved into quite the perfectionist, taking the often-quoted approach of spending...

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...

The world in that we live is unpredictable, to say the least. Businesses, organisations and even individuals are all vulnerable to issues which may lurk in the shadows or around corners. Some of these crises are natural while some are very definitely man-made, but they can strike at any time and with them put reputations and livelihoods on the line....
