Member Spotlight: Neville Bezzina
In this month’s edition of our Member Spotlight series, we spoke to Neville Bezzina about life in Malta, work and how he likes to spend his time.
Grand Central: What do you do for a living?
Neville: I’m a content marketer, copywriter, SEO specialist and trainer.
Grand Central: Thank you, and can you tell me a bit about what you do?
Neville: I recently joined Branders as a content executive, handling SEO on the product team.
Grand Central: What would you say is probably your best go-to productivity hack to help you on a busy day?
Neville: Using Strict Workflow extension on Google Chrome or doing a brain-dump with pen and paper when feeling I’m feeling overwhelmed, then prioritising tasks by urgency and importance.
Grand Central: Cool! And what would you say is a work-related accomplishment that you’re really proud of?
Neville: My greatest achievements would be helping interesting start-ups communicate their value online, for instance, Umana Medical Technologies or Bio Powder.
Grand Central: And how did you find yourself living and working in Malta?
Neville: I was born here 🙂
Grand Central: What do you love to do on the island in your free time?
Neville: 2020/21 has been mostly spending time at home reading, gaming and watching Netflix! Previously, I loved getting together with friends or going for a walk, dinner or having a board game evening.
Grand Central: How did you end up at Grand Central?
Neville: I knew Iain from working together at Air Malta and we kept in touch since then.
Grand Central: Awesome, and what would you say is your favorite thing about the place?
Neville: The location in Valletta is a huge plus, being a short ferry ride and elevator trip away from the Cottonera region. The community is a huge plus and the rooftop is wonderful. I like the regular activities and yes, Ollie (office dog) is awesome!
Grand Central: That is really nice to hear! And what would you say has probably been one of your best memories whilst being at Grand Central?
Neville: One time in the office everyone was sharing articles from the satirical website bis-serjeta.com and laughing about the quirks of living in Malta. Of course, BBQs on the roof are amazing as well as meeting some really interesting people.
Grand Central: Lovely. And what would you say are the top two reasons you’d recommend Grand Central?
Neville: The community support and how comfortable you feel with everyone being so friendly.
Grand Central: How nice! If there was anything that you could change or add to the place, what would it be?
Neville: Boardgame evenings!
Grand Central: And do you have any words of advice for people that want to relocate and work abroad?
Neville: Find yourself a friendly local who can guide you!
Grand Central: Awesome, thank you for your time!
