Hi Shreen, tell us a bit more about you and your current role at M&C Saatchi Performance in Singapore ?
‘Hi I’m Shreen – Indonesian / Indian digital marketer settled in Singapore. I joined M&C Saatchi Performance as a Media Planner / Buyer on the Grab account moving from another performance agency where I was a performance planner. I decided to join M&C Saatchi Performance because of the larger job scope and greater learning opportunities. After working with the team for over 2 months, I am happy to say I made the right choice.’
You joined M&C Saatchi Performance during the lockdown, meaning that you did not physically meet anyone in the team yet. How did people across the company help you to integrate?
‘From my very first day, I realized that everyone in the team was very supportive and helpful. My colleagues never hesitated to get on a call to answer all my questions and best of all is that everyone was really friendly making me feel included although we never met in person. I really appreciated this.’
Did you learn anything new during this first month working with us?
‘I came with a background in Paid Search & Social and minimal experience in other platforms which is why working on digital marketing plans for our Grab account has been a wonderful learning experience. Through this role, I not only get to work with Social & Search campaigns but I also explore campaigns on video (DV360/YouTube) and other partners. My current role has truly pushed me outside of my comfort zone and provided a much needed steep learning curve.’
What is the first thing you look forward to when coming back to the office?
‘I can’t wait to meet everyone face to face! While it’s great to work from the comfort of my home, I truly can’t wait to get to know the team better when we meet.’
