Meet the team - Jasmine Lui
We’re back again with another addition of our “meet the team” series.
Today, we’re introducing you to Jasmine Lui from our marketing & communications team.
Can you explain what your job role entails on a day-to-day basis?
Here at LK2, we have two companies – LK2 Architects and LK2 Sport & Leisure, I am lucky enough to sit across both companies which makes my job different every day.
Some days I can be working focusing on PR – chatting with our architects about a mixed-use student accommodation/retail scheme, talking through feasibility studies and business plans with the sport and leisure team, or liaising with clients about PR for projects. I also control all the social media platforms for both companies – updating the world with what’s going on at LK2.
As well as this, I am also part of the business development arm of both companies. This includes heading out to potential new clients, delivering workshops, co-founding the top networking event in Lincoln, PIPIL, and arranging and attending events such as MIPIM.
What made you want to go into this line of work?
I’ve always been a bit of a social butterfly, so the idea of being able to do a desk job that didn’t limit me to only working at my desk was a real winner for me. I love getting to meet new people and chatting to them about the amazing work LK2 do and I also really enjoy that I get to coordinate a number of different parties to deliver effective and innovative PR for projects.
If you weren’t in your current role, what job would you have?
My dream job was to appear in musical theatre shows on the West End. From a young age I would sing and dance around the house, or as my grandma frequently reminds me sing to people who visited her fish and chip shop. I went through school taking part in youth shows at the Drill Hall, and even appeared in Annie Get Your Gun with the CAODS.
What do you do at the weekends?
My weekends are mostly filled to brim, it sounds cheesy but life really is too short to not make the most it. I love walking my dog, Ruby the puggle, catching up with friends and family and maybe the odd gin. Fitness is a big part of my life and I love nothing better than a circuits class on a Saturday morning to set me up for the weekend.
What’s your favourite meal/food?
I think my all-time favourite food (other than chocolate) has to be fish. I’m not a huge meat fan, so I automatically resort to a fish dish given the option. My favourite is a tuna steak, closely followed by salmon and langoustines.
