Unmasking 10 to 1 Employees: Jeff Davidson
Jeff Davidson, Senior Account Executive –
Believe it or not, I have been in Public Relations for more than 15 years. In that time I’ve dressed up in a mascot uniform, been in a dump truck full of LEGO blocks, was on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange, and ran around SXSW, CES, and HIMSS. Public Relations may seem glamourous, but it’s a lot of hard work. Although I’ve learned a lot from my clients, my coworkers, and my mistakes over the years – I wouldn’t change a thing.
- If you didn’t work in PR, what would you do?
I always wanted to be a television director for a sitcom.
- What is your most memorable PR experience?
My client was launching a new product at CES and we had presentations and interviews lined up for days. I was running on no sleep, mostly coffee, and exhilaration. It was the definition of “work hard, play hard,” and I’ll never forget it.
- Best advice you’ve ever been given?
Don’t be afraid to stand up for yourself. This is great advice for life, but also for business.
- What’s your favorite quote
“Live as though the world is as it should be, to show it what it can be.” – Steven S. DeKnight, American screenwriter, television producer, and director.
- What’s one lesson you’ve learned from your time in Public Relations?
Never give up.
