The Get Ahead group is growing! With regional offices already established in Berkshire & North Hampshire, Leeds, West Surrey, Newcastle and South Yorkshire, Suffolk and Essex we’re pleased to announce our latest addition (and our very first London region!): West London.
Here’s 60 seconds with our West London Regional Director, Louise Young.
Name: Louise Young
Areas of expertise: All areas of marketing from strategy to delivery, communications to social media management, campaign planning and digital media. Louise has demonstrable history of working in TV, education, telecoms and events industries.
When and why did you join Get Ahead VA? I launched on 1st November 2020. Undoubtedly 2020 will go down as a year like no other in history, but for me, the opportunity presented by the world of virtual working is one of the few things that’s really made sense this year! As businesses have had to adjust, and continue to do so, a virtual agency could represent the most appropriate support to help businesses both continue and grow in these strange times. The flexibility of our approach suits all budgets and size of business and the team are well-versed in all things ‘virtual’.
What did you do before you joined Get Ahead VA? I’ve worked in marketing for over 25 years, as well as having previously run a childcare-related franchise of my own. I’ve been lucky in that I’ve worked with some incredible people and seen a whole range of businesses grow.
Career highlight to date: probably my time at Sky, an innovative employer in an ever-changing sector, a truly fast-paced work environment and where I made friends for life.
Plans for the future: I’m looking forward to building my business network throughout West London, an area I’ve lived and worked in for all of my working career to date, and crucially helping businesses get back on their feet post-COVID and grow once again.
