ALICE GOETZ – MARKETING Manager

 

  1. Why did you want to work at BLUE?

What first struck me about BLUE is how committed the team are in their mission to build and empower brands that drive true sustainability in the marine and renewable energy sectors. It’s really inspiring to see the trust that BLUE’s clients have in the team and how this can bring genuine change to such an important industry.

 

  1. What has been the best part about working at BLUE so far?

The best part for me has been the people. There is a great atmosphere and buzz when everyone is in the office together and they truly care about the clients and their work.

 

  1. Favourite thing to do outside of work?

I love being outdoors and taking weekend adventures to go hiking, paddleboarding and kayaking.

 

  1. What are you most excited about in your new role at BLUE?

BLUE has big plans for 2023 and beyond, and I’m looking forward to helping achieve these goals! One of the things I’m most excited about as I start my role is sharing more about the impact of BLUE’s work with our audience and clients.

 

  1. What environmental issue do you wish people cared more about?

The impact of microplastics in marine life.

 

  1. Describe working at BLUE in 3 words

Passionate, inspiring, and dedicated.

 

  1. Your proudest moment? 

Graduating with a master’s degree in Marketing is one of my proudest moments in life. It was a lot of hard work, but it was worth it! 

 

  1. What is the best piece of advice you’ve heard/ favourite quote?

Life happens when you’re busy making other plans. It’s true, so I always try to live in the moment and take every opportunity that comes my way.

 

  1. What’s your favourite maritime fact?

The main transport mode for global trade is via the ocean, with around 90% of all goods transported by ship. To me, this shows how vital the marine industry is to our way of life, and how it affects every single one of us. From the food we choose in our local supermarket, to the clothes we’re able to buy and how we refuel our cars.

 

  1. Most influential book you’ve read?

There is No Planet B by Mike Berners-Lee. It’s a fascinating read about the environmental challenges society faces in the 21st century and what the world really needs to be doing to overcome these global issues.
