Member Spotlight: Jo Scott, Founder / Managing Partner – Truth CreativeTuesday, 25th August 2020
Each week we get to know one of our members slightly better. This week we find out more about Jo Scott, Founder / Managing Partner – Truth Creative.
- Favourite quote or saying?
Success seems to be largely a matter of hanging on after others have let go. William Feather
- Career highlight?
There have been many, from working with the Class of 92 and launching University Academy 92, landing PZ Cussons and our many years with Reebok – but I’d say our biggest achievement is being able to reinvest in our business and purchase our own office property in Manchester City Centre – and during a global pandemic!
- Why do you love pro-manchester?
I have to admit, networking does not sit within my comfort zone, but I love pro-manchester because its programme of activity is not only interesting and valuable, but it fosters ‘easier’ ways to network. I think the membership ensures everyone who joins has a mutual understanding and a desire to forge business relationships in the right way.
- What are you reading at the moment?
Pocket Full of Do (Chirs Do) and Workshopper (Jonathan Courtney) – I’m all about business books at the moment.
- What are you watching at the moment?
Down to Earth – with Zac Effron.
- Favourite meeting place in Manchester?
Food-wise it has to be Dishoom. Albert’s Schloss also great – although slightly bias as we did the branding!
- Favourite lockdown activity?
Running. I’ve been a runner for almost 12 years, but in lockdown I’ve been able to go most mornings, which is unheard of usually.
- Most creative meal that you cook?
I’ll be honest, my mother told me to marry a man who could either dance or cook. I choose the latter and so I am rarely seen in the kitchen.
- Most creative thing you’ve seen on a video call during the lockdown?
We took part in the Business Growth Hub Amplify programme, which wrapped up in June – the final session was a full cohort call on Zoom. Each business had to record a Malteser challenge. I’ll leave that there….
- Most mundane task you’ve completed since being in lockdown?
Schooling my children. I am definitely not a teacher!
- Do you write a blog that you’d like us to share?
Yes – it’s here: https://www.truth-creative.co.uk/news-views
- What are you looking forward to doing again the most after lockdown?
Really looking forward to being with the team again, whilst working from home works to an extent I do believe we are social beings and for me, the office is definitely not dead. I’m also looking forward to jetting off on holiday.
