Take five with…Julie Hackett

See what one of our PR Managers, Julie Hackett, had to say in the next part of our ‘Take five with’ series!

Tell us a little bit about your job
It’s all about words, ideas and discussion. I love coming up with the narrative, finding the angle, brainstorming the opportunities and getting it out there. The biggest challenge is getting those first three paragraphs down.

If you weren’t ICG’s PR Manager, what would you be doing?
Something to do with books and stories. They say we’ve all got one book in us, I’d love to write my own story. I’m a good listener too.

What’s on your desk right now?
Some Grasmere gingerbread from the Lake District (actually, there’s only a few crumbs left)

“I never let a day go by without…”
Realising how lucky I am

What is the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?
Treat others like you would like to be treated yourself

What is an interesting fact about yourself?
Different coloured eyes, a bit of green, hazel and brown, or maybe blue, it’s hard to be sure.

Name five things you can’t live without
My family, a cup of tea, yoga, swimming and space to think

Finally, we’re about to put the kettle on, how would you like your brew?
Coffee in the morning; tea in the afternoon. What time is it?
