Meet this week's Member Spotlight Hannah. She was originally going to be a journalist, but things took a turn! Find out what she does now below.
HELLO HANNAH, COULD YOU TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF?
I moved from the UK to Barcelona in August 2016, swapping my long commute to Canary Wharf for the Catalan coast, coffee and culture. You’ll find me in the Crew Lounge after Tuesday morning yoga with Betsy. When I am not working or walking my mini dachshund, I am usually on the mat or a roof terrace – nothing beats a vinyasa flow with a view.
I studied English & American Literature at the University of Reading and soon after graduating, ditched my dreams of becoming a journalist for a small business based in rural England where cybersecurity met marketing and communication.
... AND PROFESSIONALLY?
A couple of years later I joined the world of corporate finance where I led the social media strategy for Barclaycard entertainment. A couple of Barcelona-based start-ups later, I launched EXHALE in September 2017 to combine the concepts of brand strategy and deep breathing.
Sounds a little different? It’s supposed to! As I continue to expand the business on the continent and in the UK, I am also planning some bold moves in the cybersecurity space. Who knows, it might even include a downward dog. Come say hello! Conversation with the dog can be a little one-way. :)
