Milo Brown

Time in current role/time at the company:
112 years (OK, 16 of your ones).

How would you describe what the company does?
I’m not sure, I sleep through most of it, something to do with data & results?

What do you do day-to-day?
I sleep between, during and after meetings, dream about chicken, and occasionally provide emotional support.

Define your job in one word:
Tiring.

I got into advertising because:
I couldn’t get into nursing (apparently not having opposable thumbs is a problem).

Who is your right hand person/who guides you day to day?
Ahem, I think you mean right paw person – that would be my Dad, Luke Brown, he’s one of the top dogs at AFFINITY.

Whose job have you set your sights on in the future?
Dinner.

Where do you turn for inspiration?
It’s a toss up between my food bowl and my bed.

My favourite advert is:
I’m quite fond of the ones with chickens in them (definitely not cat food ones – what sort of barbarian eats fish).

My best trick is:
Is getting everyone at AFFINITY to talk to me.

Tell us one thing people at work don’t know about you?
I can’t actually understand what they’re talking about.

Quietly taxing people’s lunches without them realising.
