Welkom Fleur!

It’s been three weeks now since our Fall interns, Fleur and Aidan, joined our team and we couldn’t be more thrilled!

 

First, let’s get to know more about Fleur Horbach, who’s charisma, commitment, eagerness to learn more about the Canadian media landscape, and impressive background in PR in the Netherlands have fit perfectly with our internship program.

 

What do you love most about Toronto?

Originally, I am from Amsterdam in the Netherlands, so Toronto is a big change and I mean BIG in the sense of the size of the city! Amsterdam is a village compared to Toronto. I enjoy the friendly atmosphere and coming to the stadium to watch the Canadian teams playing hockey, baseball and basketball. And of course, being a real Dutchie, I am pleased to see bicycles everywhere.

 

What do you love the most about PR?

Working in PR means really understanding an organization to help tell its story. I love to ‘deep dive’ into companies and learn about their sector and then use my creativity along with my team’s initiative to help them tell their stories. It is exciting to work in a fast-paced environment where news travels so quickly! That makes working in PR very dynamic.

 

What might people be surprised to learn about you?

I am a big fan of the gossip pages of magazines, newspapers and the Daily Mail online. News about the royal family and the outfits of the British Duchesses are my favourite!

 

What are things you cannot live without?

I bought a Fitbit watch a year ago and I am really into tracking my steps. When I lost my Fitbit a few weeks ago at the Montreal airport, I felt completely lost not knowing if I did 10,000 that day. So I’m slightly obsessed, it’s a bit sad, but it’s good for my health, right?

 

We are definitely enjoying working with Fleur and don’t feel the slightest bit guilty when we make her run the occasional errand since we’re helping her get her steps in! 😉

 

Looking forward to  introducing you to Aidan in our next blog post.
