AKA “Happy Higgins

This University of Miami Ibis brings strong communication and collaboration skills to clients and internal teams alike at Spark451. Liam’s past experience includes serving as head coach of a 120+ person swim team, a position for which he developed detailed lesson plans and lineups and was responsible for keeping teams and parents updated. He’s always happy to lend a hand to help his colleagues, even though he was originally left-handed but was converted into a righty by a preschool teacher.

What’s been your favorite project that you’ve worked on and why?

My favorite project I have worked on so far had to do with a naming convention for an institution’s new development course. This project allowed our team to collect responses from an audience of all ages and backgrounds, and it was great to see the different perspectives of these individuals.

How has your own college education directly translated to success at Spark451 and why?

Throughout the many classes I had taken at the University of Miami, my favorite was a marketing class that taught about the process of professional selling. This class opened my eyes to the importance of developing relationships and strengthened my interpersonal skills.

What is your favorite quote? Why?

“Anything in life worth doing is worth overdoing.” – Shane Patton
This quote is something I constantly remind myself: If something is worth doing, you may as well give it 110% or you shouldn’t do it at all.

If you were famous, what would you be famous for and why?

If I were ever to become famous, I would (hopefully) be famous for comedy. Since I was a child, my favorite thing in life has been the ability to make others laugh. If someone is having a bad day, a good laugh could make them forget about any troubles, even if it is just momentarily.
