Meet Bex, our Marketing Director. She devises the strategic marketing direction of Spinning Clock and runs her own dance company for little people.
Hi Bex! Take us through what you do here at Spinning Clock.
I’m a Marketing Director – I work on the marketing plans and the strategic direction of the business which, in a fast paced industry, is always an exciting challenge that requires ongoing attention and revision to keep things fresh.
Every day is different at Spinning Clock but I love a list so each day starts with taking a moment to get down plans for the day on paper. We always have a lot to go at here and our lists usually contain a wide range of ambitious ideas. It’s all about prioritisation and focusing to get things done in the right order.
How would your colleagues describe you in three words?
Friendly, smiley and driven.
Tell us about what you get up to when you’re not at Spinning Clock HQ.
I have an inspired interest in contemporary dance so I love to read about what is going on in Nottingham on the dance scene. I have been a member of Nottingham Contemporary Dance Company for the last 13 years and run my own dance company for little people called Bumbleducks.
I love music too so try to go to gigs whenever possible and babysitter-permitting. The last gig I went to was White Denim at Rock City a couple of weeks ago – they were incredible!
What’s the best part of being a member of the Spinning Clock team?
It has to be the accolade that Spinning Clock holds; working with some of the most talented people in the industry. We proudly promote our team in all the pitches we present and I can say that, hand on heart, this is absolutely the case. The talent and creativity of the team and what they create impresses me on a daily basis.
Do you have any advice for someone reading who aspires to be a Marketing Director?
See and be seen! Persevere if it is something that you really want to do, always be keen to learn something new, and look and listen – lots!
Thanks Bex for chatting to us this week! Join us for Spinning Clock Sit-Downs every Friday and meet the rest of the SC team. We’re a friendly bunch – you can catch up with us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram too.
