Kelli Neve-Read – Business Development Manager

What was your first job?
If I can count this as my first job. When I was 13 years old, I had a newspaper round with my local newsagent. The usual big bag, pilled in with newspapers with their glossy mags. Only a small route close to home so how bad could it be – BAD 1) if you don’t have a bike and 2) if you CAN’T even a ride a bike! Let’s just say it was the shortest job ever – I made it to day two and the shop manager and I mutually agreed, it wasn’t meant to be!

What did you want to be when you were growing up?
When I was a growing up, I loved reading (still do) and relished every chance I had visiting our local library. For years I wanted to be a librarian…I even played libraries at home! I think I was a much quieter child than I am as a grown up!

Soundtrack of your life?
Can I have two? Al Green – Let’s Stay Together and Shola Alma – Imagine

Biggest pet peeve?
Oh I have a list…at the top has to be people just being unkind and rude to others (why do people not say ‘please’ and ‘thank you’)

What is one thing you’re learning and why is it important?
I guess it’s to not to ‘sweat the small stuff’. Don’t worry about things that are not important, it’s just not worth it.

Favourite phrase?
I love the phrase “A day without laughter is a day wasted” – how can you let a day go by without having a great, good belly laugh or hearing laughter around you? And “ya mas” which is the Greek version of ‘cheers” and means “to our health”.

What is your guilty pleasure?
A fried egg, bacon and black pudding sandwich in brown bread and a dollop of brown sauce. Delicious!

What is your most used emoji?
A what?!?

Do you have a hidden talent?
I can get through a box of 24 pieces Ferrero Rocher in one sitting!

What is your favourite thing about being a Bubble?
There’s a great family feel to the team and we’re always looking out for each other. Our clients are at the heart of Bubble and we are a passionate, creative bunch with a one-team focus to deliver the best results we can for our clients – always with some fun along the way!


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.

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!
