Behind the Scenes at Buzztime with Jenny Farnsworth
At Buzztime, we have a wide array of interesting, fun and passionate employees that all play a significant role in perfecting our product and keeping our customers happy! We’d love to give you the chance to take a peek behind the scenes at who exactly these amazing people are.
Jenny Farnsworth is one of Buzztime’s newest employees! She joined the Marketing department in May as a Marketing Coordinator, focused on launching one of Buzztime’s newest products. In her role, she handles many business marketing initiatives, including video production, direct mail, email campaigns, copywriting and project management of national chain campaigns. Jenny is a world traveler, having lived in Sweden, Norway and New Zealand—she even backpacked around the world by herself, going to countries like Thailand, Singapore and Indonesia. During a 6 month stint in Australia, she encountered the worst job she ever had: picking peppers for 8 hours every day. Marketing for an entertainment company sure sounds pretty awesome after that!
What is your favorite Buzztime game to play?
I love trivia in general, but I really like SIX because it keeps you on your toes and makes you use your brain in different ways.
What do you think makes for a great atmosphere at a bar & restaurant?
I have a thing for rooftops. Food & drinks taste better and people seem happier when they feel like they’re on top of the world.
What attracted you to the industry?
I started working in the entertainment & media industry back in Sweden, and I’ve always enjoyed working with something that brings joy to people in different ways. It makes it so much more fun to go to work!
What is your favorite go-to drink?
I love Appletinis, but I have also been known to order a Fireball shot or two. Or three.
What celebrity, living or dead, would you most like to have a drink with?
It would be fun to grab a drink with the entire cast of Friends since the show truly had an impact on my life growing up, as well as on television and pop culture in general.
If you had a bar, what would you name it?
“The Swede”, it would have American/Scandinavian fusion food, music & drinks!
If you had a super power, what would it be?
The ability to be in two places at the same time, so I wouldn’t have to miss my friends & family so much.
What’s one cool thing about Buzztime you wish people knew?
How many smart & fun people that work here, and I can only speak for myself, but for the first time in a long time I wake up feeling excited about going to work!
If you were stranded on a desert island, what 3 things would you want with you? My hubby, my best friend and my dog. I actually wouldn’t mind being away from the hustle & bustle, so I would just bring the ones I love the most. And my husband is a MacGyver kind of person so he would get us out of there – eventually.
