Georgia is our latest winner of the Winning Mind Award! Our monthly award of who goes above and beyond.
Newly promoted, dramatic, non- coffee drinking, Georgia has some wise words for us all…
Why did you pick a career in PR and Communications?
Having spent four years studying English at university I always knew I wanted to go into something communications based. Following a short stint in journalism, I was itching to spend less time opposite a word document! PR gives me the freedom to write content, work on events and go out and meet people, all of which I love to do.
What’s the best advice anyone has ever given you?
It’s PR, not ER.
Tell us a bit more about your interests – how would you spend an ideal Saturday afternoon?
I’ve just moved to London, so I’m currently spending a lot of Saturday afternoon’s exploring my borough… Constantly on the hunt for new lunch spots and cosy pubs.
And what are your hobbies?
Beyond socialising (if that counts as a hobby), I absolutely love to read. I’m that person on the tube getting in everyone’s way with my head in a book. I’m a keen member of our NB book club which is organised by the D&I committee and have discovered loads of great reads through it!
What’s one thing that people should know about you?
I used to be intensely involved in amateur dramatics from around the ages of 8 to 18. Possibly explains some things about my personality…
What’s one thing that would surprise people about you?
I’ve managed to reach the age of 25 without ever trying coffee. Proud of it.
What makes you a Winning Mind?
You’d have to ask my nominator, but apparently my content drafting! I love getting my teeth into a new piece of writing, and am really lucky to get to learn about all kinds of new tech in the process.
Any advice for future Winning Minds contenders?
Keep on keeping on. There are always new opportunities to shine at NB, and our diverse skill set is what makes us such a dynamic agency. Whatever your strengths, if you don’t like to shout about your great work someone else will always do it for you.
