Info Junkie: Natalie English

By Staff Reports, posted Mar 19, 2021

Natalie Haskins English

President and CEO, Wilmington Chamber of Commerce 

English relies on e-newsletters and blogs that keep her informed about business growth and policies or politics that impact business. She reads five or six every morning. On a personal level, she relies on apps such as Harris Teeter and Life360 for convenience.
 
English reads the Punchbowl newsletter, Business North Carolina, Greater Wilmington Business Journal, StarNews, Charlotte Business Journal and Triangle Business Journal emails and newspapers.
 
“I watch local news in the morning. I’m a regular viewer of Netflix, Apple TV and Amazon Prime Video for entertainment and to take my mind off work. I tend to lean into historical fiction. I feel like I’m learning while being entertained.”
 
Books she recommends include “World Without End” by Ken Follett, “The Poisonwood Bible” by Barbara Kingsolver, “The Bluest Eye” by Toni Morrison and “Rules of Civility” by Amor Towles.
 
“I’ve rewatched a number of movies. I love all four of the A Star is Born movies,” she said. “An American President is one of my favorite all-time movies.”
 
English said her life has changed with her iRobot Roomba and Braava. “I schedule my Roomba every night at 10 p.m. to vacuum then my Braava mops so I wake up to clean floors every day. With two dogs and a sandy beach nearby, those two devices make me very happy.”
