Meet Senior Account Executive Laura-Jane Upton

This month you can get to know us a little better with #mayweintroduceourselves. Earlier this week we introduced Account Director Jonathan and next up is Laura-Jane, or LJ as she is known in the office:

What is your role at CubanEight? Senior Account Executive

How long have you been with CubanEight? I joined CubanEight at the start of this year

What is your favourite thing about PR? No day is ever the same. I know it might sound cliché, but it really is true when it comes to working in PR. I can honestly say there is never a dull day, and every day I am learning new skills. Cuban Eight offers me the chance to do this, while also balancing work and family life, and from my very first interview I knew it was definitely the place for me

When you aren’t working at CubanEight what are you doing? If I had been asked this two years ago the answer would have been festivals, meals out and going to gigs – times have slightly changed since having a baby. Nowadays, I can be found running around a park; discovering new ‘instagrammable’ cafes and spending time with family and friends. Luckily, festivals, meals out and gigs are not quite off the agenda … just a little less regular

What word best describes you? Determined

Tell us something about you that might surprise people? I am a qualified make up artist. A skill I was desperate to learn and was lucky enough to study, while also working

What are you currently singing along to? Blink 182, Mumford and Sons or Metallica – complete indie rock chick at heart!

#mayweintroduceourselves is running throughout May across Twitter and Instagram
