Meet the Team: Sophie Graci
I love how supportive our team is of one another – there’s a lot of laughter but there’s also a lot of banding together to help solve the problems that we come across in our work every day. There are always new challenges, but as stressful as it can be sometimes it is always gratifying when you get something weird and wonderful sorted.
We know you studied Drama at university and that you love theatre generally! Is this something you are still involved with?
Yes absolutely - my theatre company Delicious Theatre actually has our London premiere coming up in February, so make sure to come see us now before we get our first Olivier! One of my favourite things to do in the summer is go up to the Edinburgh Fringe and see exciting new theatre companies create amazing work – I particularly love Poltergeist Theatre, Spies Like Us and Colla Voce.
What might we find you doing out of the office?
Just before Christmas I finished a coding course with the brilliant Code First Girls, which was very much my only out of work activity because of all the homework that went along with it! I’m about to start volunteering for the Feminist Library, which is something I’ve wanted to do for ages so I’m very excited about that. I tend to overfill my week with lots of fun and interesting things and then spend most of the weekend curled up in bed – it’s all about getting some semblance of balance!
You’ve already seen a few speakers since you started! Who has stood out for you?
John Amaechi at my first Knowledge Guild was particularly amazing – such an inspiring man, and the way that he holds a room is really extraordinary. I also have a soft spot for Tom Surgey, who came into the office to talk to us about all things wine-related. My family on my Dad’s side work on a vineyard, and I find the whole process really fascinating.
