Welcome to Cogent. Hatii Shuttleworth.
We are delighted to welcome Hatii Shuttleworth as the newest member of our team here at Cogent. Joining the Relationships Hive, Hatii lets us in on her experiences before Cogent and life outside of work.
What’s your new role at Cogent and what are you most excited about?
“I’m excited to be working as part of an integrated team again; there is just so much knowledge together under one roof”
I’ll be one of Cogent’s Digital Relationship Managers. I’m obviously thrilled to hear that a beautician comes in once a month to give us a massage – who wouldn’t be excited to work at such an awesome place?!
But on a more serious note, I’m excited to be working as part of an integrated team again; there is just so much knowledge together under one roof. I’m really looking forward to learning new ideas that can help me to guide my clients towards the best channels/campaigns they need to reach their objectives.
What’s your life motto?
“Try and stop me”
I’m a complete go-getter and when I have a goal, I’ll aim for the stars to get there. I also strongly believe to trust in your instincts… I’ve had to make head and heart decisions before… and your gut is always right – don’t ignore it.
What’s your biggest achievement or the thing you are most proud of?
When I was 17, I moved to Germany to become an Au Pair. It was one of the scariest things I’ve ever done, as I could barely speak a word of German before I arrived, but after just 10 months there I was speaking German to a university level standard.
Tell us an interesting fact about yourself.
“More of a pre-warning than an interesting fact”
My personality type is ENFP-A – so more of a pre-warning than an interesting fact; but I talk a lot and adopt introverts.
What were you doing before Cogent?
Before Cogent, my role was an Account Manager for Blue Chip Marketing Ltd, an agency in Manchester. Primarily working on an app launch for Europe’s largest security company, I also worked on various projects in the FMCG sector including the clients: Kellogg’s, Symingtons and Essity. Outside of work, I was basically enjoying every little thing the city has to offer in the F&B and leisure sectors – including ninja trampoline courses, dinosaur mini golf, underground ping pong, 20th story cocktail bars and some really awesome and weird flavoured pizzas! I do love a bit of adventure.
Can you tell us about an example of togetherness that you find particularly inspiring?
I’ve never seen a place that displays a stronger sense of ‘togetherness’ than Manchester. After the MEN arena attack on 22nd May 2017, the whole city has completely united. Every other person you see has a Manchester bee tattoo which originally symbolised hard work and has created a strong sense of unity within the city; as well as beautiful bee graffiti created by local artists in the Northern Quarter, and the ‘Bee in the city’ trail – which has seen over 100 individual giant bee’s designed into statues in and around the city this summer. This trail has brought so many people together exploring around the city. It’s the most perfect example of togetherness.
