Five Minutes With… Abi Cunningham

Next up in our ‘Five Minutes With’ interview series we talk with Abigail Cunningham, Sales Director of UniLIVE.

Find out what her typical day involves, why she loves her job, the best piece of advice she has been given and why she would eat Japanese food every day for the rest of her life…

What doesa typical work day look like for you?

‘Thankfully they’re getting less typical as I’m working a couple of days in town again and meetingup with team and clients in person – I’ve never been very good at sitting in one place all day. First task (unless we have an early call with Australia) is usually to checkin with the team to plan in any prep/support needed for the day’s client meetings and deadlines. You have to be flexible in client service as you never know what’s going to land in your inbox and everything is urgent so I’ve learned to enjoy the variety and accept that I’m rarely in control of my day! Usually finish catching up Arran on the UK/European status as he starts the day in the US…’

What do you like most about your role?

‘I love the fact that we’re breaking new ground globally at UniLIVE – innovatingwith tech to solve historic industry issues and help our partners work more efficiently. Our play, display and audience verification work is at the forefront of improving accountability, trust and collaboration in OOH and gives me a real sense of purpose as I believe this is key to achieving the next stage of industry growth.’

If you had to eat one meal, every day for the rest ofyour life, what would it be?
