The real reason I joined Bee Digital
Chris Bradford - Product Director, Bee Digital
My Grandad often told me ‘Hard work is its own reward’.
I admit I dismissed this as an old man’s cliche in my early career. You work for the money, or status, or experience. Right?
I didn’t recognise the truth behind this philosophy until I started to better understand, over the years, what I really wanted from my working life.
I realised it was simply to do interesting work with interesting people.
I know that's easy to say. But when you boil it down it simply makes sense to do work that has worth, that comes naturally, so it doesn’t feel like you’re doing it just for the money.
You work hard because your hard work delivers value. That feels good, I think.
I’ve been lucky enough to join Bee Digital as Product Director at an incredibly exciting time for the company. They’ve delivered award winning campaigns time and again for educational companies across the last 10 years and are seeing rocket fuelled growth
They more than fulfil the 'interesting work' part, by helping a rich and diverse variety of companies promote their educational services and products to schools and families using data, technology, social media, digital media, and much more.
And their client list contains some of the most 'interesting people' in the industry.
But none of those things were the ultimate reason I chose Bee Digital.
It comes down to their company culture and values.
They have an enviable reputation for integrity, creativity, and customer success. They know the difference between a cold list and building an audience. They get results by listening carefully to their client’s challenges and executing to the highest standards.
It’s a company with serious ambition driven by a super smart team and it’s invigorating to be on that journey.
So now I know my Grandad was right. It’s time to roll up my sleeves and work hard.(If you want to reach out please connect with me on a growth strategy call. I genuinely look forward to helping you out).
