Midas Meets…Suzie Meller

Each month, we’re sitting down with different members of our brilliant team to understand what drives the bold and cutting-edge work we do and find out a bit more about the person behind the work.

This month, we spoke to Account Director and resident foodie in the office, Suzie Meller, who works across some of the biggest cultural names including Henley Festival, Ai- Da robot, La Biennale di Venezia and much more!

Something I won’t shut up about is…

Food, obviously. Most of the office – shamefully – know my go-to McDonalds order. Food is always the first thing that comes out of my mouth when I talk about my weekend and even press events (love a canapé). If I was to ever be a journalist, I’d definitely like to be a food critic.

 

Best thing about my job is…

The range of clients and projects that I get to work on. One day I’ll be working on a fashion photography book, the next an art exhibition, or even a major festival. Working across such a variety of campaigns means every day is different, always exciting and varied. It also doesn’t hurt that I get to travel to different places at the same time, like Venice for the Biennale which was a dream come true.

 

I got to where I am today by…

Never getting bored of that feeling when you achieve press coverage. It’s that warm, fuzzy, proud feeling, and there’s nothing quite like it. Seven and a half years on since securing my first piece of coverage and I still let out a ‘woop woop’ and show it off to my family and friends.

 

In my spare time, I like to…

Other than eating, of course, I love nothing more than a trip to the theatre. I am so in awe of the talent that goes into the making of a production from acting to singing, lighting to set design. For me, it’s one of the few times that you can block out the rest of the world. It helps that there are some other theatre buffs at Midas which makes for a nice debrief.

 

One thing I wish I knew at the start of my career is…

You don’t have to be the loudest person in the room to make a difference. While there are certain skills needed to make it in any industry or job, it’s okay to be exactly who you are. I’m a strong believer in the beauty of individuality and it is our unique and different characteristics that make us who we are. Midas is such a special company and I have learnt so much from my amazing colleagues who are all so talented and supportive.
