Meet the team – Chris Greener

Chris Greener is the latest Manchester Masters winner to join theEword team. Here, the Newcastle-born student talks to theEword blog about online marketing, Bob Dylan and music festivals.

Howay man.

Hello.

So, what are you doing here at theEword?

I’m here as part of the Manchester Masters scheme. I was among the ten winning candidates from 2009. This is my third, and last, placement of the programme.

Well, it’s good to have you on board. What are you doing for us?

I’m part of the online marketing team. It’s great to be at the forefront of marketing. Encouraging users to visit a website is a science, so it appeals to my logical side.

Right, so how did you become interested in online marketing?

After passing my A-levels, I enrolled onto an apprentice scheme in Newcastle for a structural engineering company. During the programme, I was given an online marketing project for the company I was with at the time. My interest in the medium grew from there.

So, what do you hope to learn from theEword?

This is really my first B2B placement on the Manchester Masters scheme and I’m looking forward to the experience of interfacing with clients and businesses. I’ll be working on research projects and PPC campaigns during my time here, so there’s a lot to look forward to.

Ok, next question. You’re on Celebrity Come Dine With Me. Who do you invite for dinner?

The musical greats. I’d resurrect Phil Lynott (frontman of Thin Lizzie) and Jimi Hendrix. Bob Dylan would also get an invitation. And we’d talk about anything but music.

Gaze into the future for us Chris. What do you want to be doing in ten years?

It’s up in the air at the moment. The Manchester Masters scheme has allowed me to learn a host of new skills and techniques. Although, I’ve got dreams of owning and running my own music festival somewhere down the line.

You a bit of a music fanatic?

Definitely. I’m going to the Exit music festival in Serbia this year.

Zabaviti! [Have fun!]
