Meet The Team – Dec

July 8, 2020

In this instalment of our Meet The Team series, we speak with Dec. 

Dec works in our Marketing team as a Digital Marketing Executive. With his knowledge of SEO and all things digital marketing, Dec is here to assist Titus with our ambitious growth plans for the coming years, solidifying our online presence and helping us target new markets.

Below we sat down with him to find out a little more about his past work experiences, his role at Titus and his interests away from work.

What are your past work experiences?

My first "day job" was in Project Management as part of the Asda Marketing Team. After that, I moved to specialise in digital marketing in the property industry. I've also been involved in various businesses in a freelance capacity, including a Holiday Business, Video Production Company, a Podcast and lots of others.

What do you enjoy most about working at Titus?

I'm really enjoy creating lots of great content, developing effective digital strategies and fully immersing myself in the world of Moodle.

Your top 3 favourite Podcasts/Books?

I listen to a lot of Podcasts, the three I'm enjoying most at the moment are: The Ricky Gervais Show, Hardcore History by Dan Carling, The Doug Show (All about SEO and Digital Marketing)​.

What are your interests outside of the office?

I run a blog called The Yorkshire Press (https://theyorkshirepress.co.uk/), so I'm often out reviewing restaurants and exploring Yorkshire to give me inspiration for articles. I also have a newborn daughter, so she's keeping my partner Sophie and I busy at the moment.

If you could pick up a new skill in an instant what would it be?

I'd love to be fluent in another language.

Do you have any favourite quotes?
