2 Minutes With... Nicki
She’s the girl we trust with getting Neom noticed by the biggest health and wellness influencers, so it’s just as well she’s a bit of a wellbeing queen… She’s a Kettlebell class regular, green juice obsessive and winner of the first round of Neom’s Ultimate Healthy Bake Off Competition, so we caught up with Nicki, our PR Exec, to get a sneak peek into life at Neom…
Amanda: What do you do?
Nicki: Each day I’ll be chatting with health and beauty journalists at some of the UK’s biggest glossy mags, telling them all about the latest Neom launches or the cool work we’re doing with the Neom Wellbeing Board. It’s up to me and the PR girls to get Neom seen by the absolute best journalists and featured in the most influential mags, papers and blogs, so there’s never a quiet day for us three. I love scouring Twitter and Instagram to find out who the up and coming names in wellbeing are… Whoever thought social media stalking wasn’t a real job is wrong.
Amanda: What’s the best bit about your job?
Nicki: I love scouring Twitter and Instagram to find out who the up and coming names in wellbeing are, and making contact to introduce Neom into their lives! Whoever thought social media stalking wasn’t a real job is wrong…
Amanda: Tell us a secret from the office?
Nicki: We’re doing an amazing collaboration towards the end of the year with the coolest label in women’s gym kit and the first press sample delivery arrived this week. (If we’re going to be talking about it here, there and everywhere, we have to give it a try ourselves… it’s a hard job!). Safe to say it hasn’t been out of my gym bag since it landed on my desk. Watch this space…
Amanda: What does wellbeing mean to you?
Nicki: It’s about being happy and healthy. We should all be doing something each day to make us feel good, no matter how big or small, even if it’s just actually taking your lunch break or whipping up a nutritious smoothie for breakfast.
Amanda: What are your favourite things in life?
Nicki: I know it’s a massive cliché but it genuinely is spending time with my family and friends, closely followed by going on holiday. Whenever I get back to the UK I’m straight onto Skyscanner planning my next trip, I’ve just booked flights to Berlin in late September which I’m really excited about. (Oh and my gorgeous CAT aka Izzy, I'm obsessed with her).
Amanda: How do you exercise?
Nicki: I have to do classes as I literally need someone shouting at me in order to actually get sweating. I like circuit and Kettlebell classes, or swimming if I can’t handle anything too hardcore. There are lots of fitness fanatics working at Neom so you always feel inspired to actually get yourself to a class!
Amanda: What’s your favourite phrase?
Nicki: ‘Do more of what makes you happy’.
Amanda: Name 3 things you have in your handbag
Amanda: Which Neom product can’t you live without and why?
Nicki: The On The Go’s haven’t been out of my handbag since we got our first samples in June. I’m alternating between de-stress and energising at the minute, they’re absolutely brilliant for an intense little shot of therapy.
