Blend recently welcomed Jacqueline 'Jacq' Chappell to the team in the role as Sales, Service and Support Specialist.
Jacqueline joins blend with experience from PwC and we're excited have her contributing to making blend the 'go-to' people risk underwriting agency for brokers.
We asked Jacq a few questions about what makes her tick:
What’s the greatest bit of advice a parent or mentor has given you?
"Don't compare and despair" Other people may seem to have it all perfectly together, but keep in mind that you only ever see their highlights reel.
Who inspires you? Who do you aspire to be like?
My dad. Kind, thoughtful and disciplined.
What is your favourite flavour of ice cream?
Not at all picky when it comes to eating ice cream, mint choc chip would be my last choice...but in the end I would still eat it.
If you could eat only three foods for the rest of your life, what would they be?
Burgers, fries and ice cream. Due to a significantly reduced life expectancy, I probably won't have much time to get bored of it.
If you could rename the street you lived on, what would you rename it?
Something edgy like Death Row. We made the news for being at the centre of a small local crime wave. It's exciting times for a quiet suburb.
What piece of technology brings you the most joy?
My laptop. That's where Netflix is...
Would you rather be invisible or be able to read minds?
Mind reading seems more useful. Can't think of many uses for invisibility that don't involve breaking the law
Finish this sentence: Only I know…..
How to action a broker service ticket in record time :)
What first world problem do you have?
Being unable to work on fewer than 2 screens
What is your favourite season?
Autumn - not too hot, not too cold and no pollen
Who would play you in a movie about your life?
No one leaps to mind. Preferably not someone too glamorous, otherwise when they put my picture in the "based on a true story" part of the credits the comparison will be too embarrassing
When you’re having a bad day, what do you do to make yourself feel better?
What is your favourite outdoor activity?
Going back indoors.
If a genie gave you a wish, what would you wish for?
I would wish to end this discrimination and get 3 wishes like everyone else
What is the sound you love the most?
Rain on roof tiles. There's something soothing about it.
Is there an app that you hate but use anyway?
Instagram. I'm far too lazy to craft a profile properly yet feel obliged to have it anyway.
Do you ever talk to yourself? When and what do you say?
I ask myself what I'm doing every time I go somewhere and forget why
Who would you like to live like for a day?
No one in particular. Would prefer to live as a pet cat for a day. I think their lifestyle would suit me
What’s the craziest thing you’ve done?
Drank a whole carton of custard.
What is your favourite sandwich?
Chicken, avocado, sweet chilli and cheese
Given a chance, would you bungee jump?
I want to say yes, but I suspect I would chicken out
Who would you most like to have dinner with?
The Queen, but only if we're at her place in a fancy banquet hall
