Behind The Bubble – Peter Carter

We are a fun team made up of an array of exciting personalities. Find out more about the faces behind the team in our Behind The Bubble Q&A.

Peter Carter – Finance Director

What was your first job?
When I was 16, I got a holiday job as a door-to-door salesman of carpet-cleaning products. On day one, I finished the training at 9:30am, wandered around an estate in Bromley knocking on every door. After being shouted at and having doors slammed in my face, by 12:30 I had resigned and went to get a McDonalds instead.

What did you want to be when you were growing up?
Not an accountant! Probably would have chosen to be a musician. I play drums and guitar in a local band now.

Soundtrack of your life
Something by Prince, but it’s hard to choose. Actually I’m going to cheat and say the “Lovesexy” album because it’s 9 songs on a CD without track breaks.

Biggest pet peeve
I have two… bad grammar/writing, and anything technological that wastes my time (printer not working, wifi glitching, computer installing half-hour updates etc).

What is one thing you’re learning and why is it important? Polish. I love languages and it makes you use your brain in a different way.

Favourite phrase
In English: “you see problems, I see solutions”, said as often as possible to be annoying. In French: “quel dommage… tant pis” (“what a shame.. never mind”)

What is your guilty pleasure?
Coffee, and too many bacon rolls from the bakers next door to my house. I always end up with one when I’ve only gone there for a coffee. So more accurately, the inability to say “no” to a bacon roll when offered.

What is your most used emoji?
Almost entirely a smiley!  Or a “boom” explosion

Do you have a hidden talent?
I can do ‘the cup song” out of Pitch Perfect, thanks to my teenage daughter.

Do you have an industry idol, if so who? And why?
I don’t think I do. I’ve always found small / boutique agencies much more interesting than the biggest players. And also as Finance Director, there aren’t many exciting accounting idols!

What is your favourite thing about being a Bubble?
Everyone works together to help achieve the same thing. That’s a surprisingly rare thing.


A Few Kind Words...

Kapil Gadhire, Head of Marketing, Magnifi

From the word go, team Bubble was super detailed, efficient, and exhaustive in their approach. They are true partners and make an effort to understand the ideology and end goal to plan the perfect media pitch and strategy.

Lauren Myers, Director, Integrated Marketing – Ross Video

Working with Bubble during and after IBC 2022 for PR and press support was exceptional. Their professional approach, strategic communication, and extensive media network generated significant exposure for our brand. Bubble's on-site support was outstanding, ensuring our story was accurately told to a global audience. Their post-IBC efforts further amplified our reach and provided valuable analytics. An experienced, professional team and a total joy to work with.

Working with Bubble Agency for a tradeshow has been truly amazing. The bubble team is incredibly helpful and talented. We are very happy with the results and with all the coverage we got prior and during the tradeshow!

As usual, we were super busy before and during a tradeshow this year. What a luxury to have Bubble take care of our media relations and our social media accounts! We saw a surge of followers on LinkedIn and got good coverage in a number of publications.

The Bubble team made everything easy at MPTS! From advising before the show, to facilitating client and press conversations during the show, to making recommendations on how to make the most of the connections we made there - we rely on Bubble as a key strategic partner for our sales and marketing teams.
