- What is your job at Social Seeder?
I'm an Inside Sales & Account Director; I create and guard the methodology used to manage clients' success and drive the Social Seeder platform.
- What did you do before joining Social Seeder?
I worked in a telecommunication company for about 8 years, having held several roles over the time: from Trainer to Mobile back office, to Project Manager. In addition, I also spent one year as ICT coordinator in a Japanese manufacturing environment.
- What accomplishment that you achieved throughout your time at Social Seeder are you most proud of?
The time I spent reading, talking with people, analyzing data to come up with a narrative and strategy to make every ambassador programme a success. To be able to do that, I had to grow several new skills as a person; public speaking, analytical skills (excel, BI-tools, databases...), change management, sales and HR employer branding.
- What do you like most about being part of Social Seeder?
The mission; A world where people and corporations can overlap in more than one way is a dream that Social Seeder is realising right now.
In my opinion, companies has been lacking in humanisation. Digital transformation has made clear the necessity of employee centricity and its impact.
- What is your ambition for the company?
That we, as Social Seeder, by showing the value of employee advocacy, make a new co-creation process that is embedded in every company strategy, regardless of industry or location.
- Do you have a personal mantra?
Well, this comes from a movie called Waking life by Richard Linklater. In the opening scene there is a little girl playing a paper fortune teller, and she unfolds the future of the main character with the words "Dream is destiny". The way I interpret this is that life is a dream in which there's music playing, but it's up to you whether to dance or not. "Dream is destiny" is the first tattoo I got.
- So that's your favorite movie then?
Yes. It was the first and only movie I watched twice in a row. The main character is stuck in a dream and can't wake up. In this dream he has conversations about things like existentialism, axiology, metaphysics and evolution... I like how the movie puts perspective on things without getting stuck in one vision. As a strategist, I think it is important to be able to look at different visions without getting stuck in one view.
