Meet your M8s: Tracy Scriven

Our team at M8 has evolved over the last couple of months, bringing in new faces and new skills to the company. We thought now would be a great time to pose some questions to the team and get some insights into what makes our new M8s tick! 

Tracy Scriven

Tracy Scriven

What do you do at M8: Co-Founder & Lead Consultant (also known as Work Mother)

Do you have any nicknames: Scriv is the standard however there are many more 😊

Tracy 2Do you have any hidden skills: I can horse ride, scuba dive and ski, there was a time when I found it easy, however now, I ache from head to toe the day after.

What is your favourite food: Bran Flakes

If you could do anything today, what would you do: I love to sleep, seriously – I love it, just don’t do it enough.

Apart from working at M8, what’s your dream job: I like my job, this is it – not having to tolerate bull shit. Getting up every morning and being me and working with people, and for people I want to be around – I should have done it years ago.

What do you most enjoy doing on your day off: If I said sleeping, I would sound very boring. I am actually loving my garden at the moment, I have a pond and really enjoy the fish, frogs and wildlife I have in the garden. I am also suffering empty nest syndrome now Darcy is independent so I am finding myself DIY’ing all over the house.

Where is your favourite place: Oh my goodness, its Finland. We love Finland. It is great to ski, its just such an adventure when we go to Finland - this is where we saw the Aurora borealis for the first time. First time we drove a Ski-Doo, first time we went on a reindeer sleigh and a husky sledge. Darcy caught her very first fish - ice fishing, we loved go-carting on the ice, horse riding through the snow – it was like Narnia. Oh we love Finland, last time we went it was about -30 degrees and our eyelashes actually froze!! We’ve probably been there about 5 times now and I would choose Finland as our number 1 winter holiday.

Where would you like to visit on holiday: I’d go anywhere, it’s not about the destination for me it’s all about the company 😊. However, when you do find an awesome place like Finland it’s a win win.


What is your favourite tv show or film: The Holiday, definitely The Holiday – love it or could be Love Actually – a bit sad and girly but very true.

Who would be at your fantasy dinner party: Robin Williams – I loved that man, quite fancy The Rock. I’d really like to sit and natter all night to Stephen Mulhern he makes me laugh, I’d want to mother him!

What is your favourite drink: Gin Gin and Gin, I’m actually starting to drink Prosecco too but only with fresh strawberries. My favourite and only wine is a pink one its Beringer.

What is your biggest accomplishment outside of work: : Being a momma to an independent, funny, charismatic, hardworking, dedicated nearly 18 year old beautiful young lady named Darcy – who as it happens is abandoning me for her 18th Birthday and going away with her mate who also happens to be 18 the day after Darcy. Watch out London – here they come…………

What is your favourite joke: What did the policeman say to his tummy? Freeze. You’re under a vest hahahaha 😆😆😆

Who is your favourite band: I just love party music, anything that gets you up to jig, no favourite band really, love a bit of Abba, bit of Take That – I’m quite predictable with music.

What character from film, tv or literature do you most identify with: Bridget Jones – definitely!! 😁

What’s your favourite colour: Pink, pink and pink

What annoys you most: People who tolerate a toxic environment – why would you?

What did you want to be when you grew up: A wife and a mother to 6 children on a big farm with lots of animals….hahahah…honest. 51 years later - never been engaged or married, Darcy was a very welcome surprise and it’s just been me and Darcy since before she was born. Just for the record I am absolutely delighted with the outcome and absolutely would not change a thing – I’m going to grow old to be ‘that’ crazy old spinster dog woman.

Who was on your bedroom wall when you were a kid: This is going to sound really strange but Gary Glitter, Michael Jackson then Adam Ant came a bit later.
