Today’s guest is Gord Ray, Instagram’s brand development lead for Europe, Middle East and Africa, and proud Canadian in the UK. Gord is the former Publishing Director at achingly hip style magazine Wallpaper, and used to be Global Marketing Director at luxury brand Georg Jensen in Denmark. Gord’s @gordray Instagram account is one of my favourites for putting a smile on my face – whether he’s sharing his latest #secretLondon finds, facetiming his hamster, testing out the latest filter, or coming up with a witty anecdote or observation. During our fascinating chat, Gord shares insider secrets on how to use social media to enhance your life – and your business. He even talks about how to get that elusive blue tick! We also discuss the joys of Ferris Bueller, exploring London, and how to stay positive during lockdown. Play with Emily Murray is the podcast that’s all about finding the fun in our day-to-day lives. I’m your host Emily Murray, the author, blogger and trapeze owner behind Instagram’s @pinkhouseliving, and a strong proponent of playfulness. Each episode I’ll be asking my guest how they bring the joy into their lives, and how we can usher it into ours.
