Meet Ashleigh

Published on November 17, 2021

Get to know Ashleigh Cooper – who started at Havas People four and a half years ago as an Account Executive in the Employer Marketing team. A lot has changed since then, including her two promotions and a move to the Education Team, where she now looks after our beloved University clients as a Senior Account Manager 👏

We asked Ashleigh to tell us about one of her biggest career highlights so far.

“When I joined the Education team, I was lucky enough to work on the infamous ‘Sorry not Sorry’ Clearing campaign for Nottingham Trent University. It was a project of firsts for me – my first Education campaign, my first website project and my first ever Out of Home campaign. Since then, I couldn’t even count the number of large-scale campaigns I’ve managed, but I’ll always remember the first!”

As if that doesn’t keep her busy enough, Ashleigh also fills her free time working on her side hustle!

“I’m a typical lockdown cliché, and last year I picked up hand embroidery as a new hobby 🧶. I design and stitch modern hoopart, using upcycled fabric where possible, and 100% sustainable packaging. I’m always looking for something to stitch, from my clothes to embroidered cards and dog bandanas… swipe 👉 to check out my dog Ellie modelling hers! 🐶”

And if that really wasn’t enough to keep our Ashleigh busy, she’s also spent the past 2 years planning and re-arranging a very special day! That’s right, our Ash is getting hitched on Sunday! 💍👰‍♀️ We wish her and her partner Joe all the very best with the day and hope they enjoy every second ❤️️

Good luck Ashleigh, and thank you for sharing your story! Be sure to follow @wildlymadecreative for all her embroidery tips 🧵
