Sarah Davis

What experience do you have in the industry? I am relatively new to the advertising industry. I have worked in Marketing and HR roles in the mines in Central Queensland since finishing University. I am used to very fast-paced roles and thrive when working in a busy and dynamic work environment, which is exactly what QA provides.

What has been your favourite project that you have worked on? I have worked on a number of multi-million dollar tenders, which were extremely challenging and rewarding.

Where do you hope to be in 5 years time? I would like to still be working in advertising or media and hopefully I will have seen a lot more of Australia and the world.

What inspires you in your new position at QA? Being surrounded by experts in the industry inspires me and the approach to always deliver the best we possibly can in everything we do.

What is your best attribute? This is always such a hard question to answer. I think my commitment and dedication. If I do something, I always strive to do it to the best of my ability.

What is your favourite destination that you have travelled to and why? This is really tough!!! I spent a lot of 2014 travelling through Europe and have so many favourite destinations, it is impossible to pick only one. I think my favourite countries were Spain, Greece and Ireland. As far as particular destinations go…. I loved Barcelona, Santorini, Portofino, Florence, Salzburg, Galway & Fussen.

What is your favourite TV show? I mainly only watch sport on TV. But I was a definite Revenge and My Kitchen Rules fan and I love The Footy Show (NRL).

What coffee do you drink? Skinny cappuccino with an extra shot

What do you love about our local area and the Sunshine Coast? It’s home! After travelling a lot and working away for a number of years… It’s always amazing to come back to the Sunshine Coast. Everything really is on our doorstep. I am so happy to be back living and working here.
