DeskLodger of the Month - July 2023

Is there nothing Zac Stephens isn’t interested in? When he’s not Project Managing for Curve, the innovative payment card, he’s a keen music fan, a dedicated film buff, a passionate bookworm and an enthusiastic cook! He must be exhausted. Find out what else he has up his sleeve, and discover more about Curve.

What do you/your company do?

Curve is a payment card that allows customers to store all their cards in one through an accompanying mobile app, but my specific role is a Project Manager which allows me to work all across the business with lots of different and wonderful people in lots of different areas whilst focusing on delivering for the business and our customers.

What is the best thing about your job?

It would be the people I work with. They’re all brilliant, funny and intelligent people who genuinely care and it makes my job a lot easier. 

How do you stay motivated and productive?

To stay productive I like to listen to music and focus. I also like to keep thinking about when my next opportunity to eat food is. 

Where is your favourite place to work at DeskLodge?

I love the festival area, it’s always a great place to get your head down and focus on work, I’m constantly in and out of meetings so having an area to focus is very important to me.

What's the most valuable piece of advice you've been given in work/business?

No one knows what they're doing, so it's okay if you don't 

What do you do in your spare time?

I do a lot of reading, I’m always carrying a book around. I love to cook and bake. I’m always trying out new recipes and everyone who visits my flat always leaves with a sweet treat. I also love a cinema trip especially if it’s to the Watershed.
