Tell us how your career path brought you to Workbooks

I studied Journalism at university and instead of reporting I spent a lot of time working on the website and enhancing that, which included social media marketing strategy which led me down the path of marketing rather than Journalism. From university, I worked as a Beverage Analyst for Global Data taking on their PR schedule and Twitter posting as well as honing my content writing skills. I then moved to a company called MotorEasy where I marketed 6 different companies with very different tones of voice which ultimately led me to Workbooks.
