This month’s sixty seconds is with Hannah-Ruth Cahill, Senior Marketing Executive who joined the DT family in mid July. As a newcomer to the team, we thought we’d catch up to see how she’s settling in to life at Diversity Travel and to find out about her interests (outside of Marketing, of course).
What does your job involve?
I will be involved across all areas of Marketing, though some of my main focuses will be around brand management, product marketing and communications, both internally and client facing. Every day is different! One day I could be helping to organise an event and the next I’ll be focusing on copywriting, graphic design or social media – I’m certain my role at DT will keep me on my toes!
What do you enjoy most about working within the Diversity Travel team?
I’m sure I won’t be the first to mention how great the working environment is here. Everyone has been very welcoming and supportive. I also love that I work in Manchester now; I’m in the process of relocating from Staffordshire, but I love the culture and diversity that the North has to offer.
If you could give one piece of advice for travellers what would it be?
Don’t overpack! I am often guilty of this, but I always find that you never need as much as you think you will. I think it’s important to have a list of everything you need to take; this way you can ensure you have everything you need, without overdoing it.
What is the best destination you have travelled to?
New York has to be a real highlight for me. I felt it was all slightly surreal with its enormous skyscrapers, maze-like streets and ginormous pizza slices (which was absolutely fine by me). Next year, I’m going to travel around Croatia, Montenegro, Bosnia, Serbia and Hungary, so I’ll definitely be ticking off a few “must-sees” from my list.
If you were stranded on a desert island and could only take three things, what would they be?
Suncream (boring answer but I burn so easily!), Markus Zusak’s “The Book Thief” (one of my favourite books) and an endless supply of pizza (no justification needed).
