Meet the Team: Jerri Cook
We’re proud of our team at Giraffe Social Media! And why wouldn’t we be - it’s those little individualities that help make our team stronger and more diverse, and when we work together we constantly achieve the best for our clients.
We’d love for you to meet some of us - up today; senior business development manager, Jerri Cook…
Hello there Jerri! Tell us about yourself and what you do here at Giraffe?
Hello Mark. My name is Jerri and I’m senior business development manager here at Giraffe. I help to develop ideas for new clients who want to expand their digital presence and succeed on social media. I’m also the second oldest - which nobody lets me forget.
Have you worked here long?
We are just coming up to my two year anniversary here and it’s been amazing seeing the vast changes over that small amount of time.
What do you love most about being part of Giraffe Social Media?
It’s fantastically rewarding to genuinely help businesses achieve great results while being part of such a strong and fun team. I also get to play with Pokemon figurines and listen to angsty teen music, which is just great.
What’s your favourite social network and why?
I’m a devoted Facebook user myself, predominantly because it has my widest network on it and it allows me to connect with friends and family.
Now let’s get serious. What’s the theme song to your life and why?
Errrm… Oh my gosh… Cacharpaya by the eighties South American tribal band Incantation. Because it’s just a fun, feel good, fantastic tune. I challenge anybody to listen to it and not agree with me. The addition of alcohol may assist.
What do you like to think you’d be doing if you weren’t here at Giraffe?
I’d love to think I’d be working for the RSPCA as I really love animals.
What was the best era for music and why?
It’s too hard to choose. Anything from eighties up to early 2000s! But if I had to choose I’d probably go with the 90s - because I grew up with it.
What three things would you take with you to a desert island?
Okay. I have the survival skills of a bluebottle next to an open window so these are completely impractical. I would take chocolate, my phone, and a mains plug. And hope for the best. Desert islands have electricity right?... Oh no, I’d definitely need to take my cuddly toy Jimmy the Bunny because I’m nearing 30 and still can’t sleep without him.
What are you waiting for somebody to invent and what would you do with it?
Calorie free chocolate! What would I do with it? EAT IT IN AMPLE QUANTITIES OF COURSE!
What’s your favourite favourite?
Ahh! That’s hard! I would say Peep Show at the moment...
Finally, how do you like your eggs in the morning?
Boiled eggs and soldiers... Actually that’s not true - eggs should not be eaten in the morning, unless with a fry up. Give me chocolate instead.
