Meet the Impulse team – Samantha Paterson

Name: Samantha Paterson

Role: Sales Assistant 

What does your role involve at Impulse Decisions?

At Impulse, my role entails researching potential charity events, balls, awards, and sports dinners both in the UK and internationally. Our goal is to identify opportunities where we can offer our silent auction services to help events raise crucial funds for various charities and causes.

What did you do before you joined the team?

Before joining Impulse Decisions I worked in the gas and electricity industry for 12 years in various roles. Prior to this I worked as a sales negotiator in the property industry and a product sales speciality in the IT industry! 

What is your favourite part of the job?

Knowing that part of the work we do is helping to raise money for a range of incredible charities across the UK and overseas!   

If you weren’t doing this role, what else would you like to do?

I would love to have a portfolio of properties which I owned and would manage (lottery win depending)

Which events are you looking forward to the most in the next 6mths?

Wimbledon! I grew up watching it on television and hope to attend one year.

Who would you most like to involve in an event?

Stephen Bartlett it would be very interesting to hear about his journey to where he is today. Also, with his motivational speaking I think he would be great at an eventhe would really draw a crowd in.

Who would you most like to have a drink with and why?

 Very hard question as there are so many celebrities that I would like to meet and hear their interesting stories but the one person I would really love to have a drink with would be my dad. He passed away 14 years ago so if I could bring him back for a day it would be him.
