Do you ever wonder what it’s like to work at Six? As part of our agency life series, we give you an insight by questioning our talented team on what it’s like to work here and what they love most.
This week it’s the turn of Stephanie Powell, one of our wonderful Account Managers! She’s been with us since April 2017!
1. What is your career highlight?
At a previous company, I organised a launch event in London for a client and arranged for Karren Brady ‘the ‘First lady of football’ to attend as a keynote speaker. On the day, I was too star-struck to speak to her so just nodded a little strangely as she walked by! Not my proudest moment, but on the plus side, the event went pretty well!
2. Your favourite part of working at Six?
There is such team spirit here – if you’re overrun with work or you have a challenging brief, everyone is open to sharing the responsibility. There’s also a really close relationship between the account team and studio, which is probably helped by being in an open-plan office. I never feel like I’m on my own at Six, there’s a real sense of unity.
3. What do you love most about your role?
I like managing different aspects of a project and watching them all come together to achieve a common goal. And knowing that you’ve facilitated those relationships to achieve that outcome.
4. What three tracks would you add to the Sonos queue?
I Am Arrows – Green Grass
Miike Snow: Animal
Anything from the Big Little Lies soundtrack
6. Your favourite trend in the last 12 months?
French toast. It’s served absolutely everywhere now and I love, love, love it. And I’m not just on about standard eggy-bread – there are some amazing French toast creations across the country. My favourite plates come from Tradewind Expresso on Whiteladies Road. They serve a “house-made brioche with cinnamon roast pear, blackberry compote, mascarpone & toasted buckwheat” (yum!).
Also, Forge Bakehouse in Sheffield deliver an amazing “doughnut loaf dipped in vanilla custard and served with fresh banana, raspberry compote, peanut brittle, Valrhona chocolate sauce and peanut butter mascarpone.” Sadly they don’t deliver as far as Bristol but honestly, life doesn’t get any better than that does it?
7. If you could invite one person from history to your house for dinner, who would it be and why?
Henry V111 – there’s got to be a reason he’s the only person I remember from history lessons surely? Oh, and J. R. R. Tolkien – what an amazing imagination.
