Left Hand Agency is more than a group of advertising and marketing pros. The individuals that make up this motley crew of creative souls, retail fanatics, graphic design virtuosos and media buying wizards are an advertising dream team. (It's possible that last sentence is little bit biased.)
You already know we are experts at our jobs, so we're helping you get to know our team members a little bit more by having them answer random questions that have (mostly) nothing to do with advertising.
First up, the woman who started it all, our CEO, Lauren Ridgley: What is the one thing guaranteed to make you smile? My daughter's giggle.
What's the best advice you have ever received? If you are not feeling confident, pretend you are someone else you know who is really confident. Borrow their bravery and you will learn to be brave yourself. If you could meet and have dinner with any famous person, living or dead, who would it be? Winston Churchill. He was a fascinating leader - beloved and effective but also flawed. What's your favorite ad campaign or commercial? Geico does a phenomenal job keeping on message, but having a variety of spots. The Hump Day Camel commercial is a long time fave. If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be? Ramen. The real kind. I could eat it every day. What is the most important decision in your life to date? My decision to move to Milwaukee, WI to become a creative services director. It's where I met my partner and now we have a family!
What are you watching, reading or listening to, and do you recommend it? The "Imagined Life" podcast on Wondery is great - really good origin stories about famous people - told in a unique way. Who is your favorite left-handed celebrity and why? (Fun fact: our CEO is left-handed and that may have something to do with our agency's name) Jeremy Renner - he's a phenomenal actor - every time I watch him in a show I am riveted.
