Welcome to In the Hot Seat at The Giles Agency! Over the series we aim to introduce you to the stars that make The Giles Agency the best place to work in Hong Kong and Singapore. We hope you enjoy getting to know a bit more about us.
What’s your role at The Giles Agency?
How long have you been at the agency?
Just over 2 years!
What do you like best about working at The Giles Agency?
My colleagues and the culture.
Tell us about a project you have worked on that you are proud of:
For me, it has to be our latest Prudential Sale kit, as this is the first time I have handled the EN copywriting, TC translation, SC translation, Design and Printing for a same project.
We spent a lot of time in the design and EN writing on the 1st booklet, since there are different expectations among the client teams, but working together we ensured all clients were happy with the copy and design. This series of sales kits contain 3 booklets each delivered in 3 languages.
Due to COVID19 we had the added challenge that our clients and our teams were working from home, but the communication among us didn’t hinder and everyone did a really great job. I want to say a huge thanks to my English, Chinese and Design teams’ for their support.
Describe the agency in 3 words:
Fun, Energetic and Friendly!
What’s your coffee or tea of choice?
And finally, tell us something we might not know about you:
Hahaha, usually my friends think that I am very active, outgoing and have many activities planned during holidays. But actually, if possible I will stay at home as long as possible – the longest time I didn’t step out of my home is 8 days 😛 (during the CNY holidays, I just kept sleeping, reading and playing video games)
And that’s it for this month, hopefully you’ve enjoyed getting to know more about Christy. Watch out for the next in the series of In the Hot Seat!
