Q&A with Lucy
Describe yourself in three words.
Curious, industrious and balanced.
Take the most interesting project you have worked on recently: Why was it interesting?
I was lucky enough to be involved with the launch of a project seeking to eliminate a poison in our food chain, using a computer game called Foldit. It has been really rewarding to build a narrative for the project and have people from all over the world connect with the story and contribute towards solving the problem.
Why did you choose Kekst CNC?
I first came across Kekst CNC when I was doing my Masters. I was immediately drawn in by the variety of clients and areas that Kekst CNC was working in – from crisis management to digital communications.
How long have you worked at Kekst CNC and how has the company evolved in your time here?
I joined Kekst CNC in the spring of 2016 as an intern. Since then it has grown to include JKL in the Nordics, and more recently Kekst in New York. It’s been really exciting to be part of such a rapidly expanding firm. Our growth has meant an ever diverse set of clients and a stream of interesting opportunities for someone at the start of their career.
Who is the most impressive speaker you’ve ever heard?
Kavita Ramdas – she is the director of the Open Society Foundations’ Women’s Rights Program and is the former President of the Global Fund for Women. She’s a fascinating (and funny) speaker and offers a really refreshing take on gender roles and paths to equality.
