What are you known for? (Inside and/or outside Usabilla)
Taking a wine course and getting better at wines everyday. Cheers.

What’s the weirdest thing we’d find in your desk drawers?
Brushes and make-up for photoshoots. And lots of books I want to read – one day. 

If you could switch roles with another Usabilla employee for the day, who would it be and why?
Receptionist – I still need to work on my phone voice. I don’t know, I love it that you’re so crucial to people, even if it’s for a tiny moment. And, what a great place to mess with people.

In one word, how’s the dynamic between you and your seatmate?
Tricky question…will she read this? 😉

If you were CEO for a day, what would you change?

  • Order new coffee machines.
    Actually really good ones. I have seen people being swayed to take a job just because the coffee was great.
  • Give everyone a free day for volunteering activities.
    Myself, I can’t wait!
  • Invite all our neighbors for drinks on the terrace.
    You never know what might come out of it.
  • Re-arrange the desks and mix up the teams.
    I am curious to see what happens if you sit next to people you have no clue about what they do.
  • Encourage people to go for walks outside, or have meetings outside.
    It’s an efficient and easy way to think literally – outside.
