Hannah Considine is the new Business Development Manager at Fly High Media. She joins the company at an exciting time as the online digital economy is rapidly expanding to meet customer needs during a pandemic. Her main role involves meeting current and potential clients and identifying how Fly High Media can help them achieve their digital marketing objectives.
We caught up with Hannah on her first day at Fly High Media to find out a bit more about the person behind the job title.
What did you do before Fly High Media?
“At the start of this year, I had a complete career change, moving from Investment Banking into the world of digital and I’m loving it! I’m not going to explain in the oh so cliche way how I’m passionate about helping clients and developing new relationships, however, I will tell you that I’m a damn hard worker whatever I’m tasked with unless it’s the washing, that’s not my jam.”
What are you looking forward to in your new role?
“Coming into this new role I’m looking forward to growing, growing as a manager, growing the business, and growing as a person. This role isn’t going to be easy, it’ll take a lot of self-motivation, but playing such a big part in the business will make me want to achieve more, expand the business, broach new areas and open new doors for Fly High Media.”
How did you cope with lockdown?
“Being stuck in the house with the same four walls day in and day out will definitely get you asking yourself some questions, even if it is wow! we really need to paint the skirting boards. To cope with the lockdown I tried to implement these small actions daily to help my own, along with my friends/family’s mental health. To begin with, I have started consciously telling myself to take a moment if a situation or a thought becomes overwhelming. By taking a moment, feeling your feet on the ground, and taking a deep breath helps me come back down to earth. Number two for me has been checking in on my friends more regularly, we’re all in the same boat, and being stuck in the house all the time is not helpful. A good example is most recently speaking to a friend who was feeling like she couldn’t stop over-thinking in the evenings after work, I suggested she tried painting by numbers, now I’m getting weekly photos of strangely coloured cats, I will say this is a plus, for her sake. Finally, being around household members constantly can be difficult, even in the early stages of lockdown everyone being at home more often made the environment slightly more tense in our house so I took up walking, some big walks, some small walks, it’s a great way to exercise and get a good day out at the same time, the most recent walks I’ve conquered have been Helvellyn and The Old Man of Coniston in the Lake District, I’d definitely recommend both!”
Do you have any hobbies?
“As a hobby, I absolutely love baking, Brownies, Blondies, Cupcakes you name it I make it, my all-time favourites are Cherry Bakewell Blondies, they hit the spot. I suppose my baking skills can be put to work in the office too, maybe I can try to bribe everyone with Brownies? I’m also a keen runner, running has been so helpful for my mental health over the last 12 months. It’s freeing and great for your body, well maybe not my knees but we can’t have everything can we.”
Have you got any pets?
“I could try to deny, but there’s no point, my life does revolve around my Miniature Dachshund, Jurgen. He’s the light of my life and the most beautiful little face to wake up to in the morning, but also a right little character. Jurgen’s recently turned one and I am wondering if the ‘chewing everything’ stage is going to end any time soon? Please, someone, tell me it is?”
