It’s guest blog Thursday once again! This week, we’re hearing how our Marketing Director Kristina became part of the UKFast family. She also shares her top tips on being successful in business.
Here’s what Kristina told the UKFast Blog.
“Before I started at UKFast, and for the majority of my professional career, I worked for media agencies in London in very broad, marketing-related roles. My roles have always been based on innovation and creativity – focussed on new business innovations, building meaningful business partnerships, creative partnerships and sponsorships for clients.
“Four years ago, I moved back home to the North West. My first job here was with an agency where I learnt how to get the most out of digital marketing. But this was a side-step and I wanted to progress.”
“In my first conversation with UKFast founders Lawrence and Gail Jones, Lawrence said something to me that made me realise I was entering into something really unique and special.
“He said: “I want someone who wants to be the marketing director of Apple.” And from that one sentence I knew that we were on the same page. I wanted to be part of bringing their huge vision to life.
“In my previous roles I’ve never been able to say that every day is different. But at UKFast I can honestly say no two days are the same. I’m surrounded by people who share my attitude to work. My team is passionate, positive, ambitious, driven and forward thinking. For the first time in my career I felt that I really fit in and was made to feel part of a family.
“At UKFast I don’t feel like I’m working for someone; I feel like I’m helping to build something. I genuinely feel like I’m making a difference and impact while being totally supported. I’m really looking forward to continuing to transform and grow the business. I think we’ve only just scratched the surface of what we can achieve. I also want to help improve attitudes to technology, to get the message out there that tech is the hero of all industries but we need to embrace it more.”
“I’ve been lucky enough to surround myself with supportive people and progress quickly throughout my career so far. Here are some key points I’ve learned along the way:
