What do you think drives and guides you professionally?
What drives me at Endava is the culture and the freedom we have to grow. My path hasn’t been without challenges, but facing them shaped me as a professional. All this comes as a result of having the support needed to develop. Now, I support, help and lead others towards being the best they can be.
What I like the most about Endava, is the everyday life that is fulfilled with different activities, presentations, pass it on sessions, events and of course the Endava values, which are the engine that brings success, progress and accomplishments. Without being open and adaptive to changes I would not succeed and be where I am today.
What was the most important lesson you learned over these 3 years?
Behind each successful story, there is a pile of solved puzzles and mazes, lessons learned and of course, a great amount of commitment. I have learned to accept each given challenge and opportunity. In my opinion, intelligence is translated into the ability of being adaptable.
What do you like to do in your free time?
I spend my free time in various ways, but I truly love being in “2nd gear”, connecting and enjoying time with friends and family, preferably outdoors. Honestly, I do not have a particular hobby, but I definitively enjoy doing many different things that ignite my creative spark - to cook or even paint when the artistic mode is on.
However, taking the globe off the shelf to plan trips and adventures is always refreshing. My last holiday was to Crete where I had the chance to see some of the most beautiful and hidden beaches on Earth. The adventure before that was a trip around Europe by car, when I visited 13 cities in 6 countries in two weeks! Next on my list is to visit a new location outside Europe. Visiting new places, countries and cultures enlivens the character, widens the horizons and makes you a richer person on the inside.
If you were to start work at Endava tomorrow, what would be that one piece of advice you would give to yourself?
Be eager to learn something new and do not be afraid to ask questions. Commitment is the key to success. Endava offers many opportunities to grow; all you have to do is to seize them.
