Hey, everyone. It's us again, your favourite Manchester-based digital marketing agency, and we're here with another employee spotlight for you! Say hello to Naomi, our brand-new TikTok Presenter! We sat down and chatted away with the fashion-forward Marvel fan who shared a *very* intriguing guilty pleasure of hers.
The Work Stuff 📈
Tell us about your background. What led you to DMT?
After studying for a Master’s in Broadcast Journalism at Nottingham Trent University, I knew I had a passion for social media presenting. I have a chatty nature and an obsession with all things fashion, so I wanted to utilise my journalistic skills in a way I loved. So, bagging the role of TikTok Presenter at DMT is something I’ve really worked hard to manifest. 😊
What is something unique that you think you bring to the role?
As much as I love presenting, my inner nerd really thrives when I’m looking into all the off-camera info, including comparing post-live analytics, researching clients, and editing!
What’s something you want your colleagues to know about you?
If you’re looking for some drinking game inspo, take a shot every time you hear me say ‘gorgeous’, ‘stunning’, ‘super cute’, or ‘girllll’ during the TikTok lives. You’ll be drunk by the end of it.
The Personal Stuff 👨💻
What three words would your friends use to describe you?
Caring, motivational, and loyal. I asked them, and I can confirm they're the nicest things they've ever said to me. 😂
What’s your favourite cultural moment of this past year and why?
Julia Fox’s Call Her Daddy podcast appearance. “I MeANnnN, I wAaASs JoSHh SaFdIe's mUUuseEe wHeN hE WrOteE Uncut Gems”. Iconic.
What’s your hobby or passion project outside of work?
Fitness and nutrition. I think I'd literally go insane if I didn't exercise regularly. I'm also a massive cook and foodie. Making breakfast is honestly my love language.
What’s your guilty pleasure?
Scrambled eggs and peanut butter on toast. Don’t knock it till you try it.
What causes are you supportive of, and why?
Different Strokes UK and Brain Research UK. These causes are both close to my heart, and the latter is a stroke charity run by young survivors for young survivors. Strokes can be really isolating for young survivors, and a lot of them suffer from imposter syndrome. It’s an underfunded and underresearched area that definitely deserves more attention.
The Fun Stuff 🥂
Give us your best Manchester bar recommendation.
Has to be Albert Schloss. You’ll find me dancing on the benches any chance I get.
If you were a social media platform, which one would you be and why?
TikTok, not that I'm biased or anything.
Who would be your five dream dinner party guests, dead or alive?
- Princess Diana (an icon, and I want all the royal family tea).
- Beyonce (Virgo twins).
- Henry Cavill (H O T, and he’s the kinda man that would defo pull out my chair at the dinner table).
- The Scarlet Witch (just want to see that chaos magic unfold).
- Mary Wollstonecraft (I wrote a whole dissertation on her feminist writings, so I’d love to know her opinion on her).
