Lauren is an Account Director at Taylor Alden and leads a number of B2B and B2C client programmes.
Let’s get to know her a little bit better….
How long have you worked at Taylor Alden?
Coming up to seven years – where has the time gone?
What are your most memorable moments or highlights at Taylor Alden?
This question really made me think back through each of my years at Taylor Alden. A part of the job I love is arranging press events for my clients – everything from the planning behind my desk right the way through to event day. We’ve arranged everything from factory tours to German beer festival events; each event is just as exciting as the next and we put our all into them.
Another memorable day has to be attending a press event where we sailed down the Thames on a boat with TV presenter and property guru, Phil Spencer!
What do you like most about working in the PR industry?
How no two days are the same! You can plan your day perfectly but it hardly ever goes to plan – I really enjoy that part! As most days are very busy, we try and make it a priority to take short breaks, make sure we walk away from the screen and most importantly, get some fresh air! I love the fast-paced buzz of this industry and, of course, the clients and media I work with every day.
What was your first job?
Stacking shelves in a shop – aged 13!
Where is your dream holiday destination?
I’m currently trying to plan a honeymoon, so this has been something on my mind a lot. I think somewhere in the Caribbean – Saint Lucia or Turks and Caicos.
Tipple of choice?
A fizzy glass of prosecco – or a margarita, if I’m going all out (but not too many!).
If you had to choose another career, what would it be?
I’d love to be in real estate or property development.
And finally, who’s your dream client?
I think it has to be Porsche – I’d be one step closer to getting a beautiful Porsche Cayenne (my dream car!).
