New beginnings, team spirit and the big 26.2

As the Marketing Executive for Energi People, I would like to introduce to you the latest April blog: New beginnings, team spirit and the big 26.2

Brighton Marathon

An introduction to April’s blog

It gives me great pleasure to introduce myself as the Marketing Executive for Energi People. It has been a fantastic few months at this organisation and it continues to grow from strength to strength. This blog isn’t about my age (I wish I was 26!), but rather my experience at Energi People since I began in January 2022 and how I have taken on various challenges to make up for lost time…thanks Covid! What exactly is the big 26.2? Well, you are about to find out!

Jar of positivity

Energi People is built on an abundance of determined, passionate and compassionate individuals. Each week is introduced with a ‘jar of positivity,’ where we read out 2 positive affirmations about our fellow team members in the Monday meeting. This creates a strong sense of positivity and highlights what a close-knit team we are. Internal communication is considered just as important as external communication, which is invaluable in a multi-disciplinary business (focused on technical, civil-structural & building services engineering). Aside from work, we have taken on various challenges, including Tough Mudder’s, Half Marathons and Whiskey nights…to name a few! Highly competitive and eager for a challenge, we always look forward to the next activity!

Multi-channel marketing

My main aim as I started my new chapter at Energi People was to utilise my marketing and creative skills to heighten engagement and solidify the Energi People brand. Having recently achieved a Level 4 Certificate in Professional Marketing with the Chartered Institute of Marketing (with Merit), I have used these skills to cement our brand across channels – ensuring that the brand identity is aligned and consistent on a multi-channel scale, embracing the familiar Energi People orange pallet and increasing awareness of our services by showcasing an abundance of relevant and timely content. Building team spirit is also really important to me and so I have taken this under my wing by creating an Energi ‘Wall of Fame’ and a ‘Positivity Wall,’ where we showcase our achievements. I am thoroughly enjoying this new chapter at Energi People and I look forward to my journey ahead.

The big 26.2

Aside from work, I have taken on two challenges this year, one of which I recently completed. On 10th April, I ran the Brighton Marathon for Cancer Research in 4 hours and 44 minutes. Throughout the race, I felt a magnitude of emotions – from elation (especially as I passed hundreds of supportive spectators, thank you to you all!) but also severe pain. My joints by mile 18 felt like they were going to snap, but I couldn’t have stopped. A marathon really is a physical and mental challenge. My body ached so much that if I had stopped, I wouldn’t have been able to start again! The only option was to keep going – even if it meant crawling to the finish line! As I got to mile 25, I was greeted by two beaming faces, Portia Hotchkiss and Joshua White. I felt so honoured to have the support of not only my loving family, but two fabulous Energizors, at a point my body had ‘hit the wall.’ I couldn’t be more grateful for the support and it really did give me that final push to the finish line. Thank you!

My next objective is to run the London Marathon in aid of NSPCC, which is taking place on 2nd October. I would like to achieve a PB of 4 hours and 30 minutes, so let the training commence!
