What do you do?
I spend sixty percent of my time on reception and am the telephone voice of the company so to speak. The other forty percent I spend on event management. At the same time I organize and coordinate a lot to do with meetings and administrative tasks. I look after guests and prepare events for the DACH region. I also look after internal events. Most recently I organized the summer festival and the MOPO relay race. And most importantly, I’m there to answer any questions and concerns colleagues might have.
What was the most defining moment for you over the past 10 years?
It’s got to be coronavirus. The phone never stopped ringing. I was the first person that apparently had the whole world on the end of the phone, from worried retirees, the embassy, right through to NATO. When I wanted to go to the restroom, I had to tell my colleague because you didn’t get a minute’s rest. You could write a book about it.
