Employee of the month, the apprentice edition!


Posted by Jodie Houghton

A wise person once said 'the difference between success and failure is a great team'. We're not sure who said that, and we're probably not going to Google it, but we agree nonetheless.

With a bigger team than ever, we felt it was only right to show some love for the people who make the magic happen here at BBI. The employee of the month series kicks off with our apprentice 'Little Dan'...

Who are you, how long have you worked at BBI and what is your role?

Dan Hughan, Apprentice, one and a half months.

What did you expect?

Absolutely no idea! Hadn’t had much agency experience before.

What do you do all day?

A bit of everything! Assisting with frontend website development, testing, adding content.

Do you remember your first day? Please elaborate...

Vaguely! Tried to keep my head down and was fairly quiet… Not so much the case these days.

Three favourite sites and why?

Reddit for many reasons, Twitter for the many funny accounts, “Ainsley Harriotts face on things” Facebook page, because Ainsley.

Routine or chaos? 

Chaos! Routine is boring!

Tell a joke

Jokes about German sausages are the Wurst…………….

Any embarrassing work related incidents?

At a previous job I fell down some stairs with a full tray of tea & coffee.

Inspirational quote, yours or famous.

"I am not a man, I am Cantona” - Eric Cantona. Doesn’t mean much, pretty funny guy though.

Daily mantra, or occasional mantra if any?

Stay hungry!
