Unlocking Potential #OneTeam: Charla Symons
Charla Symons is one of our Marketing Managers at Unlocking Potential. Find out what her day-to-day might look like and her passion for sea-swimming in Cornwall.
Charla, what is your role at UP, in a nutshell?
As the Marketing Manager, my role is to work with the amazing marketing team to create dynamic campaigns that highlight the best in our programmes. On a day to day basis this can vary from content planning for new campaign ideas, to developing the website, preparing high energy impact case studies or planning and delivering game-changing events.
What do you most enjoy about working with UP?
Knowing that all of our passion, energy and effort is making a real and positive impact to the strength and success of businesses in Cornwall.
They’re also a really funny bunch!
How do you stay inspired?
Sea swimming. Every week and all year round, in our beautiful coastal waters. It clears the mind in a very unique way! The inquisitive minds of my children are also a constant reminder to look at the world laterally and be inspired by different ideas and viewpoints.
What is one thing that you have tried, which you will never, ever do again?
What is your biggest bug-bear?
Liars. And when people hand coin change on top of a note or receipt – it all slips off when they hand it over!!
You’ve been given an elephant, you can’t get rid of it, what would you do?
Elephants were my favourite animal as a child, and I obsessed having one as a pet – so, this would be a childhood dream come true!
