What kind of skills are needed to do your role? And would you say you need any specific training to do what you do?
Public speaking, idea creation, problem-solving, critical thinking, being a people person, communication and tenacity. It’s really hard to describe it in all honesty. I am very fortunate that my role is an extension of my natural self, I don’t feel like I am working a job, I’m just doing me within the space I love. I think if there was one key takeaway or one skill, it would be to think outside of the box.
If you could pick one meme to describe what it’s like to work at Versus, what would it be and why?
[Below] There is an image of [footballer] Mbappe running clear on goal, and a defender dragging him back for dear life. This is the meme I choose, no discussion. Versus is a platform for the community first and foremost, and we have been able to cater to their needs. Many activations or levers we utilise are now also used by others which is normal in any field.
If you are doing something right, people are going to analyse and take the best bits. We pride ourselves on doing it for the community though, so this meme reminds me of that. We try and do stuff, and others cling on to it. This also reminds me of our famous captions too; our community literally love them and grab onto us the second we are late in delivering a caption on their favourite ballers.
