All About Beth

Meet our Vice President of Client Services, Beth Gleesing. A true leader, Beth’s passion for z2 and its clients is evident in all her efforts.

Describe a “typical” day at z2 for you.
Well if you have been following the blog and reading about my other z2 team members, you know from the rest of my account team that no day is very typical in agency life. Agency life is fun and challenging and at times can be harried because we live our lives around deadlines. But the thing that stands out to me the most is that working in an agency gives me the opportunity to work with some of the most creative people I have ever experienced. I am definitely a “left brain” person – and I marvel at the ideas that are generated and the beautiful pieces of work my co-workers create.

Most Unique Experience during a z2 Workday:
The most unique day I’ve had at z2 was also one of the most inspiring experiences I’ve had. We were doing a photo shoot of breast cancer survivors for Susan G. Komen of Southeast Wisconsin. It involved 8 women, all survivors or women going through cancer treatment. These 8 women were strangers when they entered our photo studio. And yet, they banded together and looked as if they were life-long friends on camera. Seeing the connection these women had and the support they showed each other in the time they were with us was surprising and inspiring. Their status as survivors entered them into a club they did not ask to be part of and formed instant bonds among them.

You’re stranded on a deserted island, what three things would you bring?
A good book…I have too many favorites to name one, but as long as I have something to read, I’m good. Diet Coke. My husband…we’re pretty good at figuring things out together so we could get ourselves off the island. Plus I know he would bring something musical so then we could have dance parties.

If you were an animal, what would you be and why?
Probably an elephant. They are very intelligent. They live in tight-knit family groups their entire lives and protect each other. And I feel that there is something almost graceful in their slow, deliberate movement.

If you were a ghost, where would you haunt?
A library.

What’s the #1 most played song on your iPod?
It depends on my mood. It could be Fat Bottomed Girls by Queen, I Bet My Life by Imagine Dragons or something like Survivor by Destiny’s Child.

Where’s Waldo?
I don’t know, but I wish he was weeding my garden.
