IMCA Ignite 2023 in Nashville!
Music City—we'll see you there! If you could travel back in time to see a band play live, who would it be?

Two great choices. Which fictional character do you relate to the most? Eleanor Rigby, Lady Madonna, Lucy in the Sky?

Can't fault her work ethic—and love for breakfast food. What do you do to unwind after a long day at work?

That tracks. Do you have any pets?
Three cats. Muffin, Batman and Marshmallow.
Adorable. So, back to music, if you had to do karaoke, what song would you sing?
“The Sign" by Ace of Bass or “Your Love" by The Outfield.
Moving away from music, which website do you most often defer to when procrastinating?
Yeah, that game is bad news for marketing and communications nerds like us. Apart from talking to us at Agency Nation and the odd word game, what's one thing you can't say no to?
My husband and kids.
OK, a few more questions before we hang up and tackle today's Wordle. What is the most-used emoji on your phone?
