Introducing Sales Executive based in Adelaide, Margherita McAuliffe as she shares what motivates her and tips to relax and unwind.
Q1. Tell us about your career to-date and your path to becoming Sales Executive at Seven’s Adelaide office?
I have been in the media industry for 30+ years, working in radio, advertising agencies and TV in New Zealand and Australia.
When I moved back to Australia in 2010, I accidentally bumped into an old Rep of mine at Seven and he told me there was a job going at the Network; I applied, and 12 years later, I’m still here!
Q2. What’s your favourite part of the role and why?
I enjoy being in a fun and energetic team environment who strive to do their best – I also love entertaining clients as part of my role – and being fortunate enough to do lots of cool things people in other jobs don’t have the opportunity to do.
Q3. What motivates you and what would you say has been the key to your success?
Great outcomes for clients and ensuring they are happy with every aspect of their television and digital campaigns. I also enjoying winning big pieces of business (and get grumpy when I don’t). The key to my success is being very thorough, attentive, servicing my clients as best as I can and forging good relationships with them.
Q4. 2022 is a huge year for content. What are you most excited to watch?
Big Brother – I love this show. All the twists and turns and colourful characters, I believe this year is going to be the best ever!
Q5. How do you relax and unwind?
I love reading a good book as well as going for a sneaky massage once-in-a-while. I also enjoy baking cakes and catching up with family and friends.
Q6. What does a typical weekend look like for you?
Sport, sport and more sport! My 8 year-old plays Soccer, Athletics and Basketball and my 15 year-old competes in Triathlons, Duathlons and Athletics. Between playing and training, there doesn’t leave much room for anything else – but I love it and wouldn’t change a thing!
