60 SECONDS WITH MICHELLE
Tell us something less ordinary about yourself.
I’m a novice birder and have only half-jokingly been plotting to get a selfie with one of the giant pelicans in St James Park.
What did you dream of being when you were growing up and why?
An inventor. I couldn’t stop tinkering in my dad’s basement workshop and inventing all sorts of things, including a flying machine and a mattress car. I’m happy to say my design skills have advanced slightly since then – but I’m still waiting for my flying machine.
What three words might your friends use to sum you up?
Dedicated, nerdy, and silly.
What made you want to work at notonthehighstreet.com?
I wanted to take my career forward with a business I believed in. Those opportunities don’t grow on trees. When I heard about why notonthehighstreet.com was founded, how we enable small creative businesses in the UK, and that my particular skills were needed, I pounced on the opportunity.
What’s different about notonthehighstreet.com to other places you’ve worked?
There is so much personal commitment and belief in what we do. It’s reflected from how we work together to how our office looks and feels.
What do you most value – and most enjoy – about working here?
notonthehighstreet.com is the most empowering place I’ve ever worked. If you have an idea you’re encouraged to share it and take it forward. I actually feel like what I do makes a difference.
Describe one of your best days here.
The first day that my research helped explain something we previously couldn’t explain – and every day that’s happened since.
And now what we all really want to know – if you were a cake what would you be and why?
Swedish princess cake, because Swedish princess cake.
