Q: Don’t be shy, introduce yourself.
A: I’m Tom and I’m the Senior Sales Manager at Vyde.
Q: Senior Sales Manager you say…what do you actually do?
A: I liaise with agency contacts on a daily basis trying to set up meetings, get briefs in and – of course – bring in revenue! I also work with the internal team, sharing contacts and working collaboratively on loads of great campaigns.

Q: Okay – what’s a part of your job that could suddenly vanish and you wouldn’t cry about it?
A: Anything admin based…
Q: What’s a fact about media/advertising that everyone should know?
A: The most relevant I’ve seen for us is big brands talking about the “Missing/Messy Middle” when talking about Brand Consideration, a problem we can solve for brands across the industry!
Q: What’s your favorite thing about working for Vyde? (And no, you can’t say the coffee machine).
A: How excited everyone is when a piece of good work is done in the office. Everyone is so supportive – good vibes.
Q: Time for a quickfire round: go-to-afternoon snack?
A: Popcorn obvs!

Q: Cake Wednesdays or Drinks Thursdays?
A: Drinks… when Miranda (Marketing) remembers to chill them.
