Employee Spotlight: Sam

It’s time for the all-new and improved Employee Spotlight! We’re taking things a step up as we get to know our newest PPC executive, Sam! Read on as we get to know him a little bit more in-depth, and don’t forget to check out the new quickfire qs at the end.

The Work Stuff 💼

Tell us a little bit about your role here at DMT.

I’m one of the PPC executives, so I’ll mostly be maintaining and optimising Google Ads for our clients.

What about your background? What led you to this industry and career?

So I decided one day that I wanted to help people in a different way. I always liked digital work, and I knew that was where I wanted to end up. So I started getting my head down and tried to really dive deep into the world of digital marketing.

What is something unique that you’ll bring to the PPC executive role?

Honestly? Probably the amount of times I switch up my hairstyle!

And what’s something you want your colleagues to know about you?

That I’m always up for a laugh!

The Personal Stuff 😉

Give us three words your friends would use to describe you.

Funny, positive, and chill.

What is your favourite moment from the past year, and why?

There’s a lot of crazy things that have happened in the past twelve months (understatement of the year!) so it’s pretty difficult to find a favourite. However, I’d probably say my trip to Barcelona earlier on in the year. I got to really experience the history and culture of the city.

What is your hobby or passion project outside of work?

My favourite hobby is definitely basketball! I love playing with my friends (or even by myself, to be honest!).

What’s your guilty pleasure?

I have such a bad sweet tooth. Ben & Jerry’s ice cream gets me every time.

What causes are you supportive of, and why?

The Black Lives Matter movement. Even though the reason for its emergence wasn’t the best, seeing a worldwide movement like that was definitely inspiring.

The Fun Stuff 🤪

Where could we find the best cup of coffee in the Northern Quarter?

I’m not really a big coffee drinker, but my friend recommends Fig & Sparrow, so I’m going to go with that.

If you were a social media platform, which one would you be and why?

I guess I’d be Instagram… I can’t imagine myself being anything else!

You’re throwing a dream dinner party and can invite five guests, dead or alive. Who would they be?

Michael Jordan, Drake, Jhene Aiko, Dwyane Wade, and my Gran.
