Please share a little about you and how you identify.
Hey! My name is Fabian (he/him). I’m of Guyanese descent and live in South London. I work in marketing but outside of work I’m an artist and story-teller.
How long have you worked for Orri and what were you doing before?
I’ve worked for Orri for a little over two weeks now and before this I was a social media manager for a young people’s mental health charity in Southwark.
What’s a typical day in the life of a Senior Marketing Executive?
Well, for a Senior Marketing Executive, my day usually consists of planning improvements to our systems, the occasional design-related job for my team, and a healthy amount of meetings.
What is your favourite thing about working for Orri?
So far, I’m loving the meeting different people from different teams. Everyone is willing to help me out with adjusting to the office environment (as I primarily worked from home in my former job).
What’s your favourite inspirational quote?
“Creativity is a wild mind and a disciplined eye.” Dorothy Parker
Outside of work, what do you do for your own mental wellbeing?
A combination of video games and going for walks in my local park.
If you could say one thing to someone struggling, what would it be?
I would generally ask them to talk to me about what they’re struggling with. Sometimes articulating your struggles with someone that can listen and highlight specific parts of what you say can make all the difference. At least that’s what helps me.
