ONE YEAR AT MARNIX AND ALLY — AS TOLD BY NADJA BORSTLAP
*Oh dear, was that one year ago already?* I think to myself as my thoughts wander to February 2nd, 2019. It was a rather chilly Friday when I commenced my journey at PR and creative agency MARNIX and ALLY. Healthy nerves were certainly present, but above all a lot of enthusiasm, eagerness to learn and to join this sweet-hearted, and inspiring team. Incredible what a difference a year makes! — Time for a little recap, if you ask me!
Actually it all began from the moment I decided to take the plunge and give MARNIX and ALLY a spontaneous call. I was so determined and looking for a new adventure, in which I could fully develop myself both professionally and personally. MARNIX and ALLY appealed to me with their outstanding client portfolio, creative vibes and gorgeous workspace. I was totally ready!
At the beginning, I was hired to be a junior PR-executive. Because I had just graduated, I didn't have enough experience yet to manage clients on my own. So I was trained by my lovely colleague Marie and I helped out where needed. Today, I’m proud to say that I’m managing beauty and fashion brands single-handedly. Meaning I create and maintain the relationship between these brands and external media partners. It is up to me to get to know our clients as well as possible and to help build their brand and tell their story.
Moreover, I’m the social media manager at MARNIX and ALLY. If it isn’t on the gram did it even happen? It’s my job to put a face on our agency, to keep you posted about the goings-on at MARNIX and ALLY and most importantly to put our clients in the spotlight!
What I love about my job is the variety, the freedom to think creatively, the hands-on mentality and the possibility to help contribute to build amazing brands. A lot has happened in a year. I had the chance to meet so many new and inspiring people which extended my network, and I had the opportunity to create wonderful things. I’m so happy to be a member of the M and A club, where colleagues became friends.
Thank you guys for a lovely year, and that many more may follow! Cheers 🥂
