Why Do We Have a Tabler of the Week?
We periodically interview one of our amazing co-workers to highlight on our culture blog. A great culture is 100% about the people that drive it. We come from different places, backgrounds, and experiences and all add a lot of spice to this workplace.
Tabler of the Week: Trevor Lynn
Tabler Since: August 2012
Hails From: Wilmington, Ohio
Proud Alumni Of: American University
What is your role at Social Tables?
My role at Social Tables [CMO] is to ensure that Social Tables makes a positive and long-lasting impact on the hospitality, meetings, and events industry.
What were you doing before you came to Social Tables?
I worked for LivingSocial and had a great experience being part of an incredibly fast growing company.
What do you like to do outside of work?
Because I’m from the country, I still get excited to wander around a city. I like to go to random places, random restaurants (good or bad, I’m not picky), and I enjoy being outside as much as possible.
Talk about your favorite Core Value:
Every Day Is A School Day. I think it applies to all the other core values in a really good way. I think we do a great job as a company of looking at all of our failures as educational experiences. We take the opportunity to learn from all our failures. We don’t have anyone that thinks they are an expert on any subject or just one person that makes decisions. Every day really is a school day for every Tabler.
Talk about your favorite Social Tables event:
Family Weekend 2015. We had a record attendance and a record number of activities. I thought it was going to get more corporate because it was bigger but it was actually just a big family reunion which was awesome.
What makes you weird?
I can’t stand doing the same thing twice (when I go to restaurants, I will never order the same thing twice and if I can avoid it I will never go to the same bar or restaurant twice). It really annoys some people but I would rather try something new than do something I know that I like already.
Cheers from Peers:
Thanks for hosting the “Demo Show Down” – extremely helpful to be outside my comfort zone. You’re feedback was excellent and I have already started to improve my demos because of you.
