Viv Kennedy Profile


Digital Executive - Viv Kennedy

Vivienne joined the Bristol City Centre BID team as a digital marketing executive on 1st November 2017, its first day of operation. She combines a two-day role here with three days at the Broadmead BID office in Bristol Shopping Quarter, looking after the websites and social media for both Business Improvement Districts. 

Contact Vivienne if you have news to share, either with other BID levy payers or the public at large – it can be about achievements, changes, events, special offers, job vacancies, or anything you want us to tell other people on your behalf! 

How long have you been with Destination Bristol and what do you do?

After graduating in 2014 at the grand old age of 47, I joined Destination Bristol in January 2015 as the oldest intern in town, working three days each week to provide social media and marketing support to the Broadmead BID team.

The role evolved into a permanent post in June 2015 and that November I became a full-time member of the DB team. From November 2017 I have been continuing with the Broadmead BID as well as the Bristol City Centre BID where I am looking after all things digital.

Do you have a typical day? (tell us a bit more about what happens in your role)

No two days are the same – I could be emailing a colleague to see if she has a spare Zebra in the morning before taking photographs of a Zulu choir in the afternoon, perhaps visiting some retailers to sign them up for a mystery shopping exercise in between. I love the variety and it’s great to be part of more than one team.

What’s your top tip for working with the City Centre BID?

Tell us as much as you can, as early as you can. The more we know, the more we can tell prospective visitors and shoppers.

What is your favourite Bristol activity?

I love going to the theatre, so I’m spoilt for choice here. There aren’t many weeks that don’t include at least one evening spent at The Bristol Hippodrome, Bristol Old Vic, or Tobacco Factory Theatres.
