Continuing on from our interrogation with Rebecca aka ‘newbie’, we decided to continue with our ‘5 questions with…’ slot so you can get to know our team a little better. We’ll start at the top with Sarah Harding aka ‘boss’…
1) What’s your favourite thing about PH?
The laughter – we have such a good mix of clients and people in our team that at some point during every working day we end up laughing. I think that is quite rare in an office
of 90% women; we work hard so we have to be able to laugh every day, and often at ourselves.
2) If you were on a desert island and could only take 3 possessions with you, what would they be?
Initially I would have said a book as I love learning and reading but I would have memorised it after having read it a few times, so I would have to take things that would keep me constantly entertained. I would take a piano so I could learn to play a bit (and have something to sing along to), a Ray Mear’s survival kit so I would know how to survive physically, and though he is certainly not a possession, I would want to take my husband because together we are at our happiest and can get through anything.
3) Where do you see yourself in 10 years’ time?
Still at the head of the agency, though with a larger team by then continuing to do really interesting and challenging consumer work for our clients and pushing ourselves every single day. Personally, I would have liked to have returned to study part-time for an MBA as I cannot get enough of learning and University really inspired me. I’d also like to be flying again – letting my private pilot’s license lapse is a great regret but hopefully I will be able to afford to fly regularly again. There is nothing like the freedom of flying around in a little plane and seeing England from above.
4) What’s your fave TV show?
CSI – the original Las Vegas version. It is just brilliant and a complete break from the daily grind.
5) Tell us one thing you’ve never told anyone before
I love peanut butter and mayonnaise sandwiches. Someone had them on a bus scene in a Grange Hill episode back when I was an impressionable teen and I’ve been secretly addicted ever since.
