On a date with Alexandra Forrester
What better way to celebrate the month of love than celebrating our people.
Valentine’s Day is coming up – and what better to celebrate the month of love than celebrating our people. Today we’re in love with Alexandra Forrester, Account Manager for several Pernod Ricard brands like The Glenlivet, Red Heart Rum, Malibu and Havana Club. She’s an avid coffee drinker, better known for her great milk frothing skills, and also known as our office Gwyneth Paltrow or even Brooke from the Bold in the Beautiful. We went on date with Alex, and here’s what happened.
How are you doing?
I’m great, it’s almost weekend and I’ve had my morning coffee J
Have you seen Melissa McCarthy’s impersonation on SNL?
YES! I love SNL and their impressions of Trump and Hillary.
If yes – what did you think?
It’s a little crazy at the moment, with such polarised views of American politics. Honesty, it’s nice to see some light hearted content about this.
If you could spend Valentine’s Day with anyone on the SNL cast, who it be?
I would be happy to spend it with any member of the cast, they are all funny/talented. I’m sure the evening would be spent laughing.
And if you could spend Valentine’s Day with anyone in the agency, who would it be?
It would be the coffee machine.
So, what keeps you in love with the job, Alex?
The awesome humans I work with, the great clients and the different projects.
And what keeps you in the love with the brands you manage?
They are all so different, which keeps things interesting. I love working on meaningful campaigns that resonate with our consumers.
Of course, there should be one thing you feel you dominate in at work. What is it?
Um, you’ve mentioned it. My amazing milk frothing skills
And what skills do you think Account Managers should develop to be able to dominate in their workspace like you do?
I feel its super important to develop great friendships with your team, and with your clients.
Alex, thanks for your time and thank for the work you do and frothy milk you make us every day. We hope you have a great month of love and better yet Valentine’s Day with Louw. <3
