PEOPLE OF THE POINT_ NICK NEL

Nick Nel, otherwise known as Nickster, is the friendly face you see and boisterous voice you hear in the office tower lifts daily. We got to know him a little better this month as he shared his passion for motorcycles and tattoos.

Say hi next time you see him!

Who do you work for and how long you have been working in the Centre.?

I’m a Digital Marketing Manager for Roobix on the 7th Floor and I’ve been working in the point for nearly 3 years now

Tell us about your job and how you started in the industry.

I’m involved in the Digital Marketing Space. I currently oversee a team of digital account Managers and digital specialists who look after clients based in Perth and Sydney in Australia.

I was heavily involved in sales and training in the traditional sense but realized the world of business was moving rapidly towards a digital environment, and that companies who did not transition into that space or learn to adapt from their old traditional marketing and advertising activities would be left dead in the water. It seemed like a very exciting space to be involved in and that’s what got me hooked!

What is your favourite part of the work you do?

Definitely, the people I work with and the unpredictable and ever-changing nature of the industry.

What are your hobbies?

Playing the guitar, riding motorcycles, being tattooed, listening to or watching live music.

Do you travel a lot?

 Where did you travel to last (for work and for pleasure)? I have been fortunate to travel allot. The last trip was over to Honk Kong and was definitely for pleasure.

If you could live anywhere else in the world where would it be?

Tokyo

Do you have any tattoos, which are your favourites?

Yes, I have many and they all hold a special place on my skin!


Describe your ultimate Sunday.

An early morning Bike cruise with friends and then home to the family for a day out together ( does not matter what we are doing ) ending with a good movie on the sofa.
