Q: Don’t be shy, introduce yourself.

A: Hey, I’m San and I’m a Sales Manager.

Q: Sales Manager you say…what do you actually do?

A: Sales, baby! My role covers reaching out to agencies and brands, pitching our fabulous product and responding to briefs and proposals. I work closely with our incredible Creative Team, brainstorming new and innovative ideas to present to our clients. Flitting about London meeting our clients is always so fun!

Q: Best bit of your job?

A: Constantly meeting new people and hearing all the positive feedback we get about our product.

Q: Okay – what’s a part of your job that could suddenly vanish and you wouldn’t cry about it?

A: Google Meet!! Petition to bring back face to face meetings, please.

Q: What’s a fact about media/advertising that everyone should know?

A: It's estimated that the average person sees over 6000 ads per day - so you've got to make those ads werk!

Q: What’s your favorite thing about working at Vyde? (And no, you can’t say the coffee machine).

A: The people, 100%! I’m constantly learning and being taught by the expertise of everyone around me. Vyde HQ is a hub of creativity – everyone is always bouncing off each other’s energy and VYBE.

Q: Time for a quickfire round: go-to-afternoon snack?

A: I would love to say an apple but it’s more like fighting for the last Dorito in the bag.

Q: Loudest person in the office?

A: Honestly, it’s hard to choose – this bunch never shut up.

Q: Cake Wednesdays or Drinks Thursdays?

A: Drink Thursdays (Aperol Spritz’ are non-negotiable).

Q: And, finally, what don’t they tell you about being a Sales Manager?

A: In the words of DJ Khaled: Confidence is 🔑
