We belong to local networking group Tring Together BusinessMart. I recently had the pleasure of being their first ‘Brief Encounter’ – an interview which is posted out via e-newsletter to all Tring Together BusinessMart members. Read the interview here and find out which biscuit I am…
NAME Kate Marston
BUSINESS KM Design & Puddingstone Distillery
Describe your typical day
Day usually starts by checking and responding to emails followed by a full day of design – could be anything from a website, a new logo, brand guidelines or marketing literature. I usually have anywhere from 10-20 projects on the go at any one time so I will be switching between them and responding to clients, writing quotes and project managing website development and printing. There could be a client meeting too or a networking event. And that’s before I put in a few hours on Puddingstone Distillery in the evening!
What inspires you?
Travelling abroad. Getting out and about and doing stuff that scares me and takes me out of my comfort zone.
What were you like at High School?
What type of biscuit would you be and why?
Tough question but I asked my hubby, Ben, and he says I’m a dark chocolate Choco Leibniz! Because they’re sophisticated and understated but layered and multi-faceted. Plus they have decorative pattern. Wow! I was thinking more Jaffa Cake – indecisive! Is it a cake or is it a biscuit? I had to ask Ben as I just couldn’t decide what I was… so definitely a Jaffa Cake. Oh, look at that, I just made a decision!
What 3 things would you take to a desert island other than food and water?
Right now a desert island sounds perfect so probably some sun cream, a hammock and a satellite phone to call for a boat (or maybe a seaplane as I’ve always wanted to go in one!) when I was ready to leave.
What do you like most about BusinessMart?
It’s local so I get to know people as business contacts but also get to know people on a personal level. Makes for much stronger relationships. It’s a great, buzzing community.
