Meet the Team – Harry Eagleton

It does not stop here at Touchdown PR as we welcome another graduate to our UK team. Harry Eagleton joins us from Durham University after completing his Masters in Marketing. 

We asked a few quick-fire questions to get to know our newest teammate a little bit better

City Break or Beach Holiday?

City Break. Beaches are rarely worth the discomfort of sand.

Favorite book you’ve read?

The Selfish Gene, Richard Dawkins

Movies or Series?

Series. Far easier to commit to than a film – if a series is bad you can find out in one, hour-long episode. If a film is bad, you’re likely sitting through significantly more to see if it’s worth it.

Why Touchdown PR?

After I finished my MSc Marketing, I knew I wanted to pursue a career in PR/Communications, and I knew I wanted to be a part of a growing, vibrant business. The graduate position at Touchdown ticked both of those boxes and allowed me to further my passion for tech – what’s not to like?

 

Who inspires you?

Lewis Hamilton. Probably the greatest driver Formula 1 has ever seen – utterly dominant at what he does. Despite being the most successful motorsports star of all time, he constantly strives to push boundaries (in areas outside of motorsports too) and works extremely hard to broaden himself as a person. 

Describe yourself in 3 words?

Optimistic, driven, collaborative.

Fun fact about you?

I have written an album. Soon to be on Spotify!

Favorite author?

Iain Dale.

What is your nickname?

Harold.

Greatest achievement?

Other than getting a job at Touchdown? Probably transferring to a Marketing MSc after completing a BMus Music Technology degree. It was a completely different academic environment with postgraduate levels of expectation, different skills to learn, and new subject matters to grapple with. However, I had a great time studying both and I can now proudly say I (might) have one of the most atypical degree combinations in the country. 

Touchdown is always looking for fresh talent to join their team, so if this would be something of interest, be sure to check out our current vacancies today!
