Welcoming Gill Holtom, our new director
Alongside our Story rebrand, we have welcomed two new members to #TeamStory – and they have already made themselves right at home. Find out more about what makes Gill tick:
We managed to steal 5 minutes from Gill’s busy day, to chat horse riding, chicken wings and crafting. Turns out, our Gill is something of a polymath – spy her beautiful pet portraits at an art fair near you!
Sum up Gill in once sentence:
Tall by 1960s standards…
Harold & Maude
Lake Wobegone Days – Garrison Keillor
Thing you can’t leave home without?
Cash, keys and phone.
How do spend your morning commute?
We’re foodies at Story – but if you had to choose between two of our office go-tos, which would it be – chicken wings or sushi?
You’re creative not just in PR, but in your spare time too – can you tell us more about your crafting and painting? What is your favourite thing to paint?
Portraits – looking for the magic that will bring a painting to life – all paintings should tell a story.
You used to ride Thelwell ponies – what would be your dream destination for a long ride?
The beach, any beach!
What attracted you to join Team Story?
Just that! The team here is fantastic!
You’ve come to Story as a fount of in-depth industry knowledge – what is the one piece of advice you wish every PR professional would take on board?
Nurture your curiosity.
What’s a typical day like for you?
A real mix and there’s no typical.
What are you most looking forward to getting your teeth stuck into at Story?
Making a difference wherever I can.
You are an expert voice in the office – what advice would you give to those just beginning their PR journey?
Push yourself hard and you’ll be surprised by how much you can achieve.
