Our marketing department is full to the brim with character – and characters. While the team contains a diverse array of talents, skills and personalities, one thing appears to unite them: a rather obsessive love for all things canine!
Jeremy (SEO guy)
Awaiting the new and life-changing: my wife and I are parents-to-be of a Christmas baby boy!
Appreciating the little things: I look forward to Saturday morning swims with our pups, Hugo and Truffles.
One of my great passions is music: which led me to learning four different instruments.
Weird but true: choosing between going to the gym or movies ... I’d choose gym any day.
Dane (data magician)
I love people – growing up as a quadruplet I always had great company.
I enjoy an active lifestyle and competed in the Junior World Powerlifting Championships in 2008, where I took fourth place (the Russians are as strong as people say they are!).
My favourite television programme is Bloomberg. I love the game-changing innovations and economic insight presented.
A highlight of my day is the smile I receive from my miniature Doberman Pinscher, Whiskey, every evening when I arrive home.
Tahir (content curator)
I’m addicted to coffee and am not capable of coherent speech until I’ve had my first cuppa Java.
I enjoy spending time outdoors and travelling.
I can still recite the opening monologue from the “A-team” TV series verbatim.
I’ll read pretty much anything – even the wife’s trashy romance novels, if nothing else is available!
Louise (social media wonderchild)
I love all things tech – and consider myself a bit of a geek.
I once spooned with a cheetah.
I have a bit of a Nutella problem. I can’t say no to the chocolatey goodness at all … but hey, admitting it is the first step …
I can’t ride a bicycle (unless it’s a stationary one) and I can’t swim (unless floating counts).
Leezl (designer chick)
I adore all things pretty and girly.
My heart melts for fluffy animals – the slobbery, licky, waggy-tail kind. My bulldog Daisy is my most treasured “thing”.
I like loud music. The louder the better. But, as my colleagues know, I’ll sing along to just about anything.
Outdoor fitness keeps me sane. Give me a 15km beach run in the rain and I’m a happy girl!
Kameshnee (also a designer chick)
I’m a Gemini – energetic, clever, witty and imaginative (according to the interwebs). On the downside, the same site says I can be superficial and devious. Whatever.
I have a mad obsession with detail – if it’s off-centre I just can’t let it go!
My favourite quote is “Always think infinite possibilities” (Deepak Chopra).
My pet peeve is when people chew with their mouths open. Don’t even get me started on this.
Ashleigh (creator of spectacular events)
I have five “almost god-children” under the age of two; I love them all to pieces but I also love giving them back after baby-sitting.
I’ve been a bridesmaid eight times. That’s eight pretty dresses in my cupboard that can’t ever be worn again – this makes me sad.
I have a bit of a thing for scarves …
I’m a vibrant morning person, which seems to annoy my team mates quite a lot on most days. I don’t know why.
