Formally known as “Ralfalectomy” around the office possibly due to masculine surname, thankfully, I do not have masculine features! I’m the PR girl at RedBalloon and I also provide marketing support for the Corporate Team. I used to sit directly opposite the CEO in the early days, then I moved away from that hot seat to reside behind the Employee Experience Manager – that’s right, so i can keep an eye on the CEO from afar! I’m also afraid of heights and couldn’t fathom the thought of throwing myself out of a plane… so I ran off a cliff instead!! – Hang gliding – you HAVE TO try it! So, so keen for surfing lessons this summer and 3 Magical Nights on Brampton Island (equals brownie points with the b/f!)
