What did you do before you began working for Infectious Media?

Prior to joining IM, I was in an account management role at a specialist search agency. I joined IM because they were at the forefront of programmatic and I liked the fact that the role was hybrid, a mix of client handling and campaign management.

What should new joiners expect when they start at IM?

There is a huge team culture at IM, especially in Singapore. The team is very supportive. This is particularly noticeable in these Covid times, IM really is a company who cares.

Tell us about your Infectious Media career journey - where did it begin, and how did you make your way to Senior Campaign Manager?

Working in the digital industry, you never really stand still. Although this is one of our values, we really live it - we walk the talk. This has really helped me evolve my career, my experience has expanded in many different directions. I have hands on knowledge and can get into very detailed conversations with clients but I also look at the bigger picture in terms of strategy, new business and new partnerships. It’s been awesome.

What is your understanding of the differences between the UK and Singapore markets?

This has really helped me evolve my career, my experience has expanded in many different directions.

What advice would you give to someone thinking about entering into a career in digital?
Never settle, never stop learning. Things change so quickly and you need to constantly be on top of these changes. At the moment privacy is top on the agenda.
