What’s your background before joining Gambit’s family?
Before joining Gambit, I worked mainly in the aviation sector as well as in larger structures (Fedex, AB INBEV). I mainly held the positions of Payroll Manager, HR Manager and HR Strategic Business Partner. During these different experiences, I had the chance to train myself in Leadership techniques (Insight Discovery, coaching, NLP). These different trainings allowed me to approach human relations in a different way and to take a new look at them. I was able to bring to my practice more listening, empathy and inclusion but also to build an approach that speaks about the group and its employees.
What were your reasons for joining Gambit?
I wanted to join a dynamic, agile environment with fast decision making. I wanted to be able to concretely evaluate my added value in the organisation. I wanted to find meaning in an environment where I could contribute my ideas and feel useful. I had a willingness to innovate and create instead of executing established processes.
