Things you didn’t know about Ali O’Brien!

by

In this series of blogs we thought it might be a good idea to let you know some of our team a little bit better…that could be scary!

Last time round we had Edel Cox and this time we have Alison O’Brien who was the very first person to join the Fuzion family after Deirdre and Greg of course!

My favourite holiday..

would probably have been one of my many trips to Orlando. I’m a massive Disney (and in particular, Minnie Mouse) fan, and have been going there since I was a little girl. I even managed to squeeze in a few days there on my honeymoon last year.

Minnie MouseIn my opinion Disney is a brand that doesn’t set a foot wrong – it knows its USPs, and has remained true to its values over the years.

My dream car is..

a black convertible Mini (maybe it’s a subconscious connection to my love of Minnie Mouse!). I have a black Mini already and I love it, but if I won the lotto I’d upgrade to a brand new one.

The part of my job I love most is..

seeing my clients in the media and putting a smile on their face. I understand that for any client, undertaking a PR campaign is a big commitment and may even be a little daunting; so it’s great when a client really gets a return for their investment in PR.

My best habit…

at work is probably my persistence…. I’ll keep plugging away if I see the potential in a story/ hook for my clients until I get a result. I’m also very organised. which is useful in this job because more often than now I have to keep a few balls in the air as at any one time as I’ll be working with a number of clients in a variety of sectors.

My worst habit…

I’d prefer if this question asked what is my weakness? I’d certainly say jellies!

Kylie MinogueMy first album was..

Kylie Minogue’s first album ‘Kylie’ on tape!

My hobbies are..

tennis, and I guess I can say running (or jogging more like!) now that the Fuzion girls have completed the Cork City Marathon Relay.

Describe yourself in 5 words..

Happy, positive, organised, competitive, and committed.

If you could be invisible for a day what would you do?

I’d sneak onto a plane and head off somewhere exotic…. Of course I’d let all at Fuzion know that I’d be missing for a few weeks just so everything is covered off while I’m away… but also to make them extremely jealous!

If you were stranded on a desert island what three items would you bring?

Sunscreen, bug spray , and my husband Eoin (he would be my ‘Wilson’).

The best advice I was given was..

“Be good, and if you can’t be good, be good at it!” – take from that what you will 😉
