We put some questions to Christopher…
Christopher, what type of campaign or event do you enjoy most and why?
The type of campaign that I enjoy the most is a busy, bustling job dealing with lots of people and getting to chat to anyone and everyone, I enjoy meeting new people and it’s one of the main reasons I love working in promotions.
How did you discover promotions and why did you feel this industry was right for you?
I discovered promo after a friend recommended it to me – I was stuck in a full time office job and wanted and needed a change, so took a chance and decided to see if I could do it full time. Four years later I am still doing it and it was the best decision I ever made!
In your opinion, what makes the perfect brand ambassador?
The perfect brand ambassador is someone who is open minded, confident and chatty, and willing to take opportunities and chances as they come. You need to be good meeting people and adapting to how different people can be.
What are you up to when you are not working on promotional campaigns?
When I am not doing promo I work in a pub and I am a model too, I have been doing bar work for 11 years and modelling for 14 years.
What has been your favourite/most memorable job to date?
My most memorable job was working at V-Festival and getting the best shift so that I was finished in time to see Beyonce on stage! It was so good being there and enjoying it, I always look forward to the festival season when I get to travel all over the UK to work.
Finally, how do you find working for eventeem?
I have found working for eventeem absolutely brilliant, I have found fantastic support from Hayley no matter what and have felt comfortable enough to let her know any concerns and worries. They have communicated so well which is sometimes not the case with other agencies, it is so refreshing to actually receive feedback from people in the office. I definitely look forward to working with eventeem again in the future!
