Q&A with Tom
Take the most interesting project you have worked on recently: Why was it interesting?
It was a spinout from a FTSE 100 mining company. It had the ideal mix of a big corporate, inspiring entrepreneurs, global investors and a dash of politics for added measure. It was a long but fascinating process.
What advice do you have for aspiring communications professionals?
Don’t worry about specializing too early on. It’s invaluable to develop a broad skillset.
What do you enjoy most about working at Kekst CNC? How does working at Kekst CNC challenge you?
I like projects where you see your work has an impact. Quite often that can be a crisis or big corporate developments which require the support of employees as well as external parties.
What is the most exciting city you’ve ever been to?
Ho Chi Minh. From grand construction and urban development to bike and shoe repair men on the street there is phenomenal industry at every level.
