About me, what I like about my job

What I enjoy about my job is the possibility to share my experiences and enjoy new ones in such a short period. I appreciate the hands-on execution in conjunction with our clients and seeing immediate results. The main point for me is to understand my client – not only from a business but also a personal, point of view.

The combination of working with a great team of people while focusing on the real impact on the client’s business is what drives me forward.

Challenging work task:  A two-month long project that needed to be done in 3 weeks. Working not only “standard” nights but also flying 13 hours to be ready to introduce the high impact solution for our client’s business (I needed two laptop batteries, and though I survived, I felt like I had rubber legs at the end of the project.

"Do not put off until tomorrow what you can do today."

Maybe you didn’t know:  In my spare time I like to recharge my batteries mostly through sports – tennis (on a competitive level), skiing, jogging, working out at a gym amongst other things. I used to be a tennis trainer for several years, including a stint in New York.
