Q&A with Ross
What do you enjoy most about working at Kekst CNC? How does working at Kekst CNC challenge you?
You are given responsibilities from the day you arrive, meaning endless challenges and opportunities.
Who is the most impressive speaker you’ve ever heard?
Helga Hengge, the first German woman to climb Mount Everest, spoke at Kekst CNC’s company summit last year. Having someone talk you through how it felt to reach the highest peak on earth after multiple failed ascents was very inspiring.
What are the major industry challenges in the next 3 to 5 years?
Understanding the real value of digital, as well as its limitations. Agencies will need to move beyond buzzwords and onto data-led communications strategies, which result in clear returns on investment.
What career advice would you give to your younger self?
Get a haircut.
What is the most exciting city you’ve ever been to?
Buenos Aires is the most chaotic and vibrant city I’ve ever lived in. It’s a sprawling metropolis with awful public transport, fantastic food, and bars that are open until 08:00 in the morning.
