At Dial A Geek we’re all about the people. To celebrate our 15th birthday, we’d like to introduce each of our Geeks – what they do for us and what was their last 15 years like. Today we speak to our Marketing Manager, Nina Sawicka.

#Take15 – Meet Your Geek:   Nina Sawicka (Marketing)

Meet Nina: our Marketing Geek.

Nina develops marketing strategies, produces and delivers content, analyses marketing success, manages marketing budget… and does all the things you’d expect from a Marketing Manager.

She speaks A LOT about Dial A Geek and helps setting the voice of the company. Today we give her a platform to speak just about herself.

Here are Nina’s favourites from the last 15 years.

5 favourite music artists since 2006

5 favourite movies (seen) in the last 15 years

Nina’s biggest lifestyle changes since 2006

  • Settling down in Bristol after moving around A LOT
  • Going from too afraid to take singing lessons as a teenager to teaching singing with a Bristol-based school
  • Learning to dance (which is way more of a lifestyle change than just being able to not look like an idiot while moving to the music you like)

Favourite travel destinations of the last 15 years

  • Austin, Texas
  • New Orleans, Louisiana
  • Montpellier, France
  • Granada, Spain
  • Bussana Vecchia, Italy

Nina’s greatest culinary achievements since 2006

  • Traditional Polish Easter Pate
  • Relearning to cook my favourite dishes without the use of legumes or dairy (it was much more difficult than expected!)

Nina’s favourite career moments

  • Every time I perform with my band, Amun-Ramen
  • Accidentally finding Dial A Geek’s job ad and applying successfully (this is definitely the best job I’ve ever had and no, I am not getting paid to say this!)
  • Being offered a full teacher’s training to join Singing Lessons Bristol as their singing teacher

Would you like to know anything more about Nina? Tweet at us (@dialageek) and we may reply (we reserve the right not to, if the questions are too weird/not weird enough).

Let us know (on Twitter or just give us a call – we’re sociable Geeks) what else you’d like us to ask us for the upcoming ‘Meet Your Geek’ posts (each of us gets a blog post!).
