September’s Team Member of the Month has been announced and it is our newest team member Sam O’Connor. Sam was voted as he has brought a lot of fun to the office but is always willing to go that extra mile when necessary. Well done!
A bit more about Sam:
My career history:
I am current working as an Apprentice Surveyor at PRE and enjoying the position immensely. Prior to joining PRE Surveyors I received a BSC in Product Design at Bournemouth University. I also worked part-time as a Bartender in South London for 2 years. This gave me the free time to work on a product idea.
My career highlight:
Winning the Morgan Innovation & Technology award for most commercially viable product which was a device that reduces mosquito oviposition. I was also a finalist in the MIAT Prize competition at the Santander headquarters in London.
What I do differently:
I have an inquisitive nature so I am always asking lots of questions. I want to learn as much as I can.
My favourite travel destination:
I have travelled across many countries in Europe and I have to say my favourite destination is Belgium. I am going to San Francisco at the end of the month so maybe my answer will change.
My favourite drink:
I tend to stick to a pint of beer however I am partial to a few tequilas on a night out.
What keeps me busy in my spare time:
I love to travel and I also enjoy playing Age of Magic.
My favourite food:
There’s not many cuisines I don’t enjoy however I think Mexican has to be at the top of my list.
My favourite eatery:
In Brighton (where my partner lives) there is a Mexican restaurant called La Choza.
Not many people know this about me:
I like drawing and painting.
