Shipmate Spotlight: Emma Heslop

What quote do you live your life by?

Live Your Life to the Full! – You are only here once, work hard, enjoy every moment, do the things you love and spend time with like minded people!

Ten years ago, what did you think you’d be doing now?

Probably the same job as I was in ten years ago, how things change!

TBB has given me the opportunity to start a new chapter of my life. I can use my experience but also challenge myself and expand my knowledge. Flexible working also means I get valuable time at home with my family.

What’s the one thing you couldn’t live without?

Wine ranks pretty high! However, I really couldn’t live without holidays. Spending time with family and friends and seeing different parts of the world is what gets me out of bed in the morning.

What are you listening to/ reading/ watching at the moment?

I am reading ‘A Stranger in the House’ by Shari Lapena, and I’m hoping it’s as good as The Girl Next Door which is one of hers.

Saturday night’s are spent with the kids and generally involve Ant & Dec somewhere! I am also currently watching The Crown and enjoy an occasional film.

What do you like to do in your spare time?

I am a Huddersfield Town fan and enjoy watching them with friends, did you know they are in the Premier League? I also enjoy going to the gym and the occasional run (when the weather is nice). The rest of my spare time is busy having days out with my friends and family.

What’s your favourite thing about agency life?

I like being busy, having lots to do, learning new things and being in a creative environment. Work comes first but enjoying being with your colleagues, and having fun at the same time really helps!

What’s your previous working experience?

My career started out in print media, handling marketing campaigns, POS, and exhibitions for many major clients. Seven years ago I moved agency side and never looked back, I love it. Seeing businesses grow and succeed it what is all about!

What are you working on at the minute that we should know about?

I have lots on at the moment but my biggest project is working on the Little Tikes account. Looking after their digital advertising, e-mail marketing and helping launch their brand new e-commerce website.

What are you excited about during the next year at TBB?

Not many dull days at sea with TBB and it’s all hands on deck! Next year will hopefully bring many new clients and lots of exciting projects and I’m very much looking forward to being part of it.
