This month’s sixty seconds is with our Head of Marketing and Communications, Stuart. He talks about his varied role and what he likes most about working in the Diversity Travel team.
What does your job involve?
I lead Diversity Travel’s small marketing and communications team, and, broadly, it’s my job to make sure the right people know about Diversity, what we do and why we’re the charity and academic TMC to work with. As a team, we look after the Diversity website, social media, intranet, internal and external comms, advertising, PR, awards, events… you name it, we’re probably involved!
What are you working on at the moment?
Some of the most important things I’m involved with include communicating our exciting new technological innovations, like our upcoming travel app, to our customers, as well as developing our burgeoning library of free charity and academic travel management resources.
What do you enjoy most about working at Diversity Travel?
The people. We have such a good bunch here, who really care and are passionate about what we do.
You spend 8 hours a day at work, so it’s important to enjoy it, and Diversity has a great culture.
What is the best destination you have travelled to?
I’d have to say Sri Lanka, where I spent 12 days in 2013. There’s just so much to see and do, from safaris to surfing and it’s a world away from the UK.
Although I have a special place in my heart for Paris, where I lived for a year as a student – quelle ville!
If you were stranded on a desert island and could only take three things, what would they be?
Very tough one.
1. Well, I’d need to get noticed, so a flare. No, actually, a pair of flares… ideally from the 70s
2. A guitar – so I could finally play without annoying everyone
3. A football – I could finally beat my keepy-uppies high score of about 4 🙂
