In this weeks’ Face to Face, Bree Johnson shares what her Sales Coordinator role entails and her journey at Seven as well as her go-to spot in Brissy!
Q1. What made you want to join Seven?
Working for a market leader is what initially drew me to Seven. Fresh out of University and unfamiliar with the Media industry, I never expected to land the role of Sales Coordinator. Luckily for me, I had a very close friend working for Seven at the time who reached out and encouraged me to apply. Almost four years later, I have made lifelong friends and learned so much that I will value for years to come.
Q2. Tell us a bit about what your role involves as Sales Coordinator?
Having been at Seven since 2018, I have worked as a Sales Coordinator across Broadcast and Digital. My day-to-day includes assisting in the implementation and management of campaigns as well as putting together converged brief responses for clients. I also have been in the Salespro team for a few years representing the Brisbane market where I assist in the training and development of new and existing team members.
Q3. Do you have any predictions for the media industry this year now that travel is back and there’s some normality in people’s lives?
It will be great for the Media industry to get back into the social scene. I think the return of events will have a positive influence on everyone’s well-being and help harness relationships. We are already seeing a strong advertising market and I think this will only grow more as the world goes back to normal.
Q4. What’s the most creative campaign that you’ve seen so far in 2022 and why?
I think the new Qantas ad featuring a remake of Peter Allen’s ‘I Still Call Australia Home’ is extremely emotive and well done. Covid obviously hit the travel industry hard, and to see the world opening again and people being able to reunite with friends and family is so special.
Q5. Who or what inspires you most?
I get inspired by the people around me. Whether that be friends, family, or colleagues. I am lucky to be surrounded by great people at Seven, and they always inspire me to work harder and go after my goals.
Q6. Finally, what does a day off look like for you and what do you get up to in your spare time?
In my spare time, you can catch me wining and dining with friends – An afternoon down at Howard Smith Wharves is always a winner! I also enjoy simply relaxing and unwinding at home with a good book, cuddling (aka annoying) my two cats, and of course, watching the AFL any chance I get. Go Bulldogs!
