David AbbottGraduate Consultant
Bright-eyed and ready to learn, David joins the Font team as the new Graduate Consultant for 2017.
Having completed a combined Business and Arts degree, majoring in Marketing and Journalism, Media & Communications at the University of Tasmania, David returns to Font after undertaking a work-experience placement in 2016. Through the diversity of a combined degree, David has acquired a wide range of skills, giving him an excellent launchpad for a career in communications.
An enthusiastic and committed worker, David has worked with a number of businesses, most recently assisting UPC Renewables Australia to produce a range of community liaison material for a wind farm project in north-west Tasmania.
With a mix of right-brain creativity and left-brain analytical skills, David researches and considers different ideas and inputs to reach the best outcome. His personable nature is reflected in his communication style, which has been shaped through working in a variety of roles ranging from primary education through to business-to-business sales.
Prior to joining Font, David worked in the thriving Tasmanian wine industry, using his client relationship skills to increase the exposure of a number of sought after local brands. He also spent a year as a Teacher’s Assistant at Goodwood Primary School, where he was grateful for the opportunity to act as a role model for underprivileged children.
David is a lover of sports, especially football (soccer), and can be found during the colder months running around for Taroona FC, a club he has played with for five years.
A passion for travel has also seen David embark on many overseas journeys, which has helped him formulate a big-picture perspective guiding his everyday actions.
