Elaine - Neon Vibes® Operations
A little bit about me
I have been in the sign industry all my life, with a short stint as a Landlady. My Mum and Dad had a sign company and I followed in their footsteps.
When I grew up I wanted to be
A musician in the theatre circuit for sure. I love to play music. I have been playing since I was about 5; started with the piano and moved onto flute, clarinet, alto saxophone, soprano saxophone, a little bass guitar and in later life I have learned to play marimba.
What do I do at Neon Vibes®
I focus on operations, which means I am responsible for looking after the workflow and making sure the guys have all the necessary tools and components to fulfil the orders on time.
I am very organised and enjoy planning and future-proofing, so this role definitely plays to my strengths.
The best part of my job
As well as a love of music, in stark contrast I have a love of Airtable - an IT platform which supports the management of end-to-end workflow!
Working with the ins and outs of Airtable. I love learning about its capabilities, getting to grips with the formulas and making life smoother for the Neon Vibes team by getting the most from the platform. I am in my element with that.
Which female inspires me the most?
It HAS to be my Mum; she was and is always there for me. She is the hardest worker I know and the best friend I have ever had.
The best piece of advice I have been given
From my Dad after just passing my diving test:-
‘Your instructor teaches you how to pass your test, now you will learn how to drive!’
I have always wanted to
Go to Vegas!
