Get to know us
We would like to introduce you the queen of all things PR: get to know our CEO, Nichola Patterson.
1. My favourite thing to do in Sydney is:
After 18 years in Melbourne, I love to be near the harbour. I never get tired of the passing parade.
2. Words to live by:
You catch more bees with honey. In other words, there’s a lot to be gained by simply being nice to people.
3. If I weren’t working in PR, I would be:
If I didn’t have children, I’d be a foreign correspondent. Journalism remains a passion, ten years after leaving the profession. That said, I love what I do, so I’m not leaving anytime soon!
4. Favourite social channel?
My favourite ‘social’ media is definitely face to face contact. I’m a people person.
5. An interesting fact about me:
I can rustle up a dinner party for 20 without breaking a sweat but I can’t bake a cake to save my life, even following a recipe step by step. I think a psychologist would say it has something to do with my dislike of following rules…
6. My first ever job was:
Teaching horse riding to children. Horses are incredible animals and kids learn so much about kindness and respect if they’re taught to deal with them in a gentle manner.
7. What do you like to share on your social channels?
Kooky signs. I had a field day in Japan last year. The ninja museum has one that says: OPEN (There is always a way to open any door).
