What does your role entail at lecocqassociate?

I am responsible of the Groups marketing activities, both digital and traditional. I also plan, organise, and direct projects for the Group and our clients.

Tell us about your academic and professional background.

I went to the University of Central Lancashire where I got my Bachelors in International Business and my Master of Intercultural Business Communications in 2017.  Whilst I was undergoing my bachelors degree, I worked for an Australian surf brand where I was handling the marketing, branding, and the creative (photoshoots, apparel design) aspects of the business.

Prior to joining lecocqassociate, I worked in the financial services industry for 2 years as an associate where I obtained my CISI Level 3 Certificate in Wealth & Investment Management and the United Arab Emirates Financial Rules and Regulation.  I joined lecocqassociate in February 2020.

What do you consider to be your biggest professional achievement?

My biggest achievement in my professional life is that I organised and directed a number of photoshoots, which I found very fun.

What is the most impactful thing you have done?

The most impactful thing I have done happened back when I was in university, and my lecturer asked me to do a motivational speech in front of a lecture hall of undergraduates.  Instead of speaking about my accomplishments, I spoke about all my failures and how they have made me the person I am today.

How many languages do you speak?

I speak English and Japanese fluently, and I also speak basic Ruski! (Russian)

What drives you?

I am driven by my desire of learning more about different topics, industries, and philosophies.  Every time I learn something new, it brings me a strange joyful feeling.  I can’t explain it!

Business aside, what do you enjoy doing when you are not in the office?

I am really into powerlifting.  I’m not sure if it’s because of my ego of wanting to lift like a beast haha!  Another thing that brings me joy :D

What is your secret talent?

I can eat 9 plates of food and 2 servings of dessert in one seating without feeling sick.
