What is your name?
What is your position within dezrez?
I’ve joined dezrez on an internship to help with their marketing and communications, both internally and externally.
Do you have any New Year’s Resolutions?
To get back in the gym, cut down on beer and chocolate and to also start working with another Sported. Project.
How long have you been with dezrez for?
Not long, just a couple of weeks and it’s been a big learning curve. Meeting loads of new people, learning the companies processes inside out, it has been a lot to take in!
Give us a short background about yourself?
I was born and bred in Somerset. I took a gap year before university where I worked two jobs, a builder and a barman to save money for university so that I could enjoy it more. Studied Accounting & Management at Univeristy, lucky enough to work in Phoenix, Arizona during my first summer at University doing door to door sales. Graduated in 2011 where I worked a few temp jobs and then did an internship in January based in Dublin with Special Olympics Ireland as a marketing assistant; my first real experience of marketing in a business environment. I then moved to Swansea in march 2012 where I began working for inngot based in technium 1 for 7 months to then move here.
What is your funniest moment in dezrez?
Probably mistaking the brand bible for something completely different. I haven’t been here that long so I’m sure there’s more to come.
Most likely City of God or any of the Lord of the Rings.
What sports teams do you support?
England Obviously, but also Bath rugby as that’s my local. I also play for Dunvant RFC so I support them.
What CDs do you keep in your car, favourite musics/ bands/ artists ?
Don’t have a car but my favourite artist is Damien Rice, mostly into rock though, so Rise Against as well.
Pizza!! Or Chocolate cake
Most embarrassing moment?
I accidentally introduced myself as ‘Hi my names Somerset and I’m from Sabas…” during one of my first seminars at University. Needless to say I was then known as Somerset…
I’ve completed a half marathon. Organised and participated in a couple of 100 mile charity walks along the south-west coastal path for meningitis UK.
What dezrez product would you recommend and why? Including additional features and add ons
I really like the dezrez valuation tool, its free and has many benefits for both the agent and customer. You can view all previous valuations, useful for negotiations and carry out valuations on the move, useful for that individual who doesn’t like being a desk junky!
