Lara has been with us since 2011. Before joining Gabor, she worked internationally as a motivational speaker for kids. Lara is known for bringing weird snacks from far away places to the office.
Q: How long have you been working at Gabor and what is your role here?
A: January 2011 and Account Director.
Q: Where are you from?
A: Toronto. But super strong ties to Prague, Czech Republic.
Q: If there were a bubble (like the Gabor bubble) above your head, what would it mostly say?
A: Either “Scott – is it ready for proofing?” Or “Are you kidding me?”
Q: What is your favourite cereal, song and movie of all time?
A: 7 year old me would say Cap’n Crunch, but now it’s homemade granola. Song; probably a Florence and the Machine song: You’ve Got The Love (it was our wedding song) Movie: Scott will say Princess Bride, so I have to say something else; Modern Times or Crazy Stupid Love.
Q: If you could go back in time or forward, what time/moment would you go to?
A: The Hanging Gardens of Babylon in their full glory. Or see Pompeii before it was destroyed — leaving before Mount Vesuvius blew of course! I’d settle for NYC in the ’20s too.
Q: If you could invite anyone (or three) to dinner, who would it be?
A: Madeleine Albright, Stephen Colbert and Christopher Walken.
Q: What’s your most embarrassing work moment?
A: Not realising two clients were married until after the meeting! It was awkward.
Q: When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
A: Archaeologist or actress.
Q: Who is your favourite Gabor dog?
A: Snickers because she’s just *so* friendly and direct. She really just wants a cuddle —unless you’re holding food.
Q: What’s your favourite part of being a Gabor-ite?
A: The flexibility to do lots of different projects. No two days are the same here.
