Avatar for Matthew Matthew 24th September 2019 0 Comments

Big news from the Square Media team! We have a new team member to introduce, say hello to Josh…

Tell us a little about yourself, Josh?

Hello, everyone reading this, my name is Josh and I’m from Kettering, Northamptonshire. A little about myself, I got engaged to my now future wife back in February, on top of that I’ve become a dad to a beautiful baby boy and a new homeowner… I’ve had a wild year, but it’s been a fantastic one so far.

Describe yourself in three words…

Pro-active, Responsible & Logical, please don’t ask my Fiancée this question! Haha.

If you could be any animal in the world, what animal would you be and why?

Penguin! Not many benefits of being one, but they’re just wicked animals.

What hobbies do you have?

I thoroughly enjoy watching Ice Hockey Games and learning to Ice Skate, I’m also picking back up my love for Airsoft. I also enjoy spending some of my spare time trying to create new things and expand my coding knowledge.

What’s your professional background in?

My experience lies within multi-channel marketing, predominantly email marketing, however, I expose myself to other areas to gain as much knowledge I can. In my last role, I would be helping clients achieve success in their marketing campaigns by providing my expertise in segmentation, customer journeys, and automated email campaigns.

Do you have any advice for our readers?

Sure – I think the best advice I can give is; If you’re an SME business or a local tradesperson you can’t underestimate the importance of a sound marketing strategy. It can take you from zero to hero in no time at all, but it’s all about finding the right people to do it with. It’s quite normal to have your marketing plan on the backburner, however getting it planned in and running it can make a real difference to your business and life.

What is the funniest thing that has happened to you recently?

OH dear… well, I may have… accidentally pressure washed my face… please don’t ask how. Just know that my face feels a lot cleaner – ha-ha!

Describe your dream holiday

Many people want white beaches or to sit by a pool for 2 weeks, and don’t get me wrong is very nice to do, but I like to get out and about, explore their country and experience their culture first hand. Plus I’m a history buff, I can spend literally days in a museum reading about precious artifacts, paintings, books & the local history.

Teach us something we don’t know

If you shuffle a pack of cards properly, chances are that exact order has never been seen before in the whole history of the universe. Cool right?

Cats or dogs?

Cats are amazing, you just leave them to it. But I also love dogs… that’s a hard question, but to be totally honest, Penguins are the best.

Flashback to 5 years old, what do you want to be when you grow up?

Firefighter without a doubt. Those guys are heroes!

Tell me 3 pet peeves

  1. Open mouth chewing
  2. Line-cutters. There are some social rules you must follow.
  3. When you let a car out in front of you and they don’t wave to thank you.

Describe your dream 3-course meal

Starter: Chicken & Leek Soup (also good for when you feel poorly)

Main: My Mum’s Homemade Christmas Roast Dinner (the best thing on planet earth)

Dessert: Sticky Toffee Pudding (om-nom-nom)

Which four individuals, living or dead, would you most like to invite to a dinner party?

Steven Hawking, Margot Robbie, Dwayne Johnson & “Stacy’s Mom”.

Three things you would take to a desert island?

Medicine box, Bear Grylls Survival Book & WILSON!
