Life Through a Lens: Chris Gough
After the success of our ‘Day in the life’ series, and to celebrate the launch of our new marketing campaign, we’re launching a new series to discover how our people ‘live their best phone lives’. Through the new series, we’ll learn more about how some of the moments saved on our phones have shaped our people and how they contribute to #LifeAtThree.
For the first in our series, we’ll be getting to know Chris Gough.
Job title: Head of Marketing Communications
Tenure: 1 year and 3 months
If you had one photo to sum up how you’ve lived your best phone life, what would it be and why?
Living your best phone life will have a different meaning for everyone. For me the most important thing is keeping a strong connection with family, especially when I’m busy or travelling. I have a 15 month old daughter and so the scenario that plays out in our new TV ad is very familiar. I’m always taking pictures of the latest new thing she has done and sending to my Mum, her Granny.
What has been a career highlight so far?
Developing the latest campaign for Three of course! It has genuinely been a great experience and it was fantastic to work with such a brilliant and fun team.
Where is your happy place?
Beyond Green Park my happy place is going out early in the morning and walking our dog, Blitz. It is a real opportunity to clear my head, get some fresh air, and prepare for the day ahead. For Blitz it is a very serious mission to bark at all the local cats before returning home to spend all day sleeping on the sofa. We like to take a selfie or two on these walks.
What do you like to do outside of #LifeAtThree?
The summer is all about music and festivals. In a few weeks’ time we are returning to End Of The Road Festival which me and my wife have been going to for most of the past ten years or so.
In the winter we love to go skiing and this year was my daughter’s first ski holiday. As she hadn’t learned to walk at that point we felt it would be unfair to strap her to skis, but did manage to get her to the top of a mountain. My parents joined us for their first ski holiday as well which they loved.
