Lauren Hau
Hello! I’m Lauren, a History, Politics and Economics student running for Marketing VP!

As this year’s marketing FYE, my passion for the society has developed immensely. I’ve had amazing opportunities to lead the marketing for some of our biggest events, including Non-Finance Orientation Day and Shark Tank, as well as play a key role in developing the strategy that boosted membership by 20%! Further, being heavily involved in event organisation has taught me the best tactics to utilise under a tight schedule.

My design and teamwork skills have flourished under mentorship of current society leaders. I designed graphics for nation-wide fundraisers, as well as edited and scripted the video that saw Bizsoc shortlisted as 1 of 4 finalists for the Bright Network Entrepreneurship award! As a bonus, I’ve grown close to the FYE team of whom many are likely to become next year’s society leaders, ensuring efficient and friendly collaboration.

Looking ahead, my vision involves:
- increased support for marketing careers after the success of our ‘Introduction to Marketing' panel
- enhancing the Bizsoc brand amongst incoming freshers through personalised outreach during Summer
- exposing students to Bizsoc’s unique culture just like I was when I came to UCL :)
Victoria Loustau
Why am I standing? In short, I honestly love marketing.

After spending this year as an executive, I've learned about the inner workings of the society, what works and doesn't work when it comes to marketing for BizSoc, our audience and events, I've built relationships with committee and picked up how to best manage our socials for optimal reach. I needed this year of experience to figure Business Society out, and I have.

Now, marketing is an art. It's a form of design and there's nothing I love more than art. I have years of experience to back me up on this and a very successful year of remotely marketed BizSoc events to show it. Unlike some other divisions, this year's marketing team's work can be publicly found on all our socials.

As for personal skills, apart from my excessive art history knowledge, I have two major abilities; time management and stress management. I have trouble focusing on one thing so I have to do at least two tasks at once which makes for quite productive work sessions, and since I'm used to juggling multiple responsibilities at a time, stress just doesn't affect me anymore (doesn't sound healthy but I promise it is).

I have some ambitious ideas for next year's marketing team, including original content and newer strategies, but unlike politicians, I'd like to discuss with my new team before making any promises. The one thing I can promise is I work fast, I work smart and I'm not the kind to stay still.
