Get to know the Strictlymarketing team’s Dads

As we approach Father’s Day, the team at Strictlymarketing wanted to shine a spotlight on their own dads (or father figure) to understand their experience of being dads, what they like, what they don’t and what they hope their children will remember them for.

The answers are as diverse as our team, from dads who are pretty sure they are very funny to those who are prepared to acknowledge they are terrible cooks.

What binds each of these men is a love of their children and encouragement to have them chase their dreams.

And in doing so, we want to thank our dads and father figures who have been there for us, supported us and believed in us. We quite literally, would not be where we are without them!
