The time I spend in genuine contact with other people is when I am happiest. Already during my school years, I was actively teaching senior citizens to use computers.
In my work life I’ve trained people on a range topics like Time Management and Prioritisation to Answering Customer Complaints. I've spent years interviewing people for customer support, engineering and sales, this has taught me to dig deeper into who people really are.
My most enjoyable time was working with first time leaders. Helping TransferWise's new leads onboard to their roles gave a lot back. It was rewarding to see how my mentorship and coaching helped people reach their potential.
I’ve also led workshops about Wellbeing and Burnout. Having been through burnouts myself I consider it a topic that needs attention. I have a healthy respect for people and organisations that work on this topic.
Today I am in the leadership team and a founding member of Must Post Media. I consider it a bonus to my career in helping people learn and grow. I believe that being actively involved in day to day work, leadership and project management (even laying down in a ditch holding a camera) makes me better at mentoring, training and coaching.
