Hard to believe but Alice Millar has been at Engage for a year! The milestone was duly celebrated on our in-house app but we thought we'd go public on this one too! It’s been an odd year to join the team with everyone being in and out the office, so, just in case you don’t know Alice well enough yet – here are a few things to help you get to know her better.
What is your biggest achievement at Engage?
My biggest achievement is actually introducing some test management tools and getting a proper suite together. My next goal is to finally get the app automation started.
What’s your favourite takeaway in the office?
It has to be a cheeky panchos lamb chipotle burrito or duck stir fry noodles from Wok to Walk. I miss office lunches at the moment!
Best day at Engage so far?
It’s been a weird year with us not going into the office as normal but I’d have to say the most fun day was in my first week, so a year ago now, when we all went to Flight Club and I managed not to hit anyone with a dart. Fingers crossed we can do some more team building like this soon!
If you could be an animal for a week what would you be and why?
100% penguin. Because they’re cute.
What’s the first thing you do in a morning?
The first thing I do is get out of bed and have a cold shower. I find it’s the best way to wake up and get’s me ready to start the day. Unless it’s the weekend, then I usually crawl back into bed.
What’s your favourite movie quote?
"WELCOME TO THE PARTY PAL" – Die Hard Here’s a link in case you haven’t seen it - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9OpIbiFmY60
Describe your team in one word?
Hmmm, I’ll go with.. determined.
And finally, if you could share one piece of advice with everyone, what would it be?
If I could share some lockdown advice with you all, it would be to make sure you get out for a good walk-in nature before it gets dark. I’ve been putting this into practice since Christmas and they really help to clear my head and also help you get a dose of Vitamin D, which is essential for our physical and mental health.
