What do Imagesound do?

Imagesound partner with some of the biggest brands globally from the retail and hospitality sectors, by providing background music and digital signage solutions. Our aim is to create an engaging environment for customers by creating on-brand music playlists and screen content.

If you’ve heard yourself humming along to music whilst out shopping, eating or drinking or caught yourself working out to the soundtrack at your gym, then there’s a very good chance that’s from us.

My main responsibility is generating new revenue for the business

How long have you been coming to DeskLodge?

Six months

What is your favourite thing about your job?

I’m in sales, so the hunt for new opportunities and winning new business is what I’m passionate about. Once I get a foot in the door, I make it my mission to deliver the highest levels of value and serve customers the best I can, by significantly improving their current state. It’s great meeting new clients and sharing insights and ideas that will radically transform their customer experience and lead to greater revenues

What is your favourite thing about DeskLodge?

Firstly, our Head Office is in Chesterfield, so DeskLodge provides me with an ideal place to work, that’s less than a 10-minute walk from my house. Secondly, it’s great being able to move around the venue and not staring at the same four walls every day, like you’d find in most other offices.

When I need to make calls, I can nip into the phone booths for privacy and when it’s admin or email time I can relax on the sofa under the canopy… all that’s missing is the swimming pool and bartender service!

What do you do in your spare time?

My son is about to become a one year old, so he’s taken up all my free time over the last year, which has been amazing! However, when I do manage to get a moment to myself, I like to play golf and binge watch box sets

Tell us something funny or unusual about yourself.

The funny stuff will have to wait until I’ve had a few drinks, so let’s go for the unusual… I was Surrey Chess champion at the age of 10 and my favourite supermarket aisle is household cleaning products. There’s nothing better than stocking up the cupboards with the latest innovations from the cleaning industry

Thanks Daryl, Happy cleaning!
