We’re over the moon to welcome Sophie Nightingale to the PR team! Sophie studied Creative Media Technology at Leeds Met and even managed to bag herself a Masters after that. Sophie loves skiing, travelling, cooking, reading and country walks (as long as there is a pub lunch on route.)
But we wanted to sit Sophie down for a 60-second hot seat interview to really get to know her…
What was your job before this?
Campaign executive at a digital agency – I worked with a range of clients to create SEO-lead campaigns that would drive links and awareness.
Favourite thing about being at Boutique?
The people! The welcome has been amazing, from Whatsapp messages to team shout outs, everyone has been lovely and it really feels like a family. The extras you get from the company such as Joy squad, Curry nights, peer groups, monthly initiatives, charity support and daily check-ins has been great, I couldn’t imagine being anywhere else now.
Last 3 things you googled?
How to pronounce a journalist’s name… (who I won’t name!)
A roasted potato salad recipe from The Original Dish which is super tasty
A stat from a recent campaign to locate more coverage
You’re on the run, forced to join the circus – what’s your performance?
I’d have to be a dancer or gymnast! I used to part of a dance school and would like to think I’d be able to balance on some beams in a glittery leotard..
Recommend a book, film, TV show, anything you’ve enjoyed recently?
So many! When I think about the amount we’ve watched during lockdown it terrifies me. Trapped is a brilliant Scandinavian drama, full of snowy scenes and dark shots – it makes you feel super cosy! One of my favourite books is The Salt Path by Raynor Winn which is a true recount of her trip along the South West coast path and makes you reflect on how we perceive grief and homelessness. I’m currently reading Olive Kitteridge by Elizabeth Strout which tells a hugely detailed depiction of a town in Main from different residents’ point of view.
Welcome to the team Sophie!
