Tell us about your day job:
My main daily task is to brighten up the day at the office and make sure that everyone has a good laugh. It doesn’t matter if they are in Sydney or Colombo: I can bug people remotely as well, got to love technology! Then eventually I also take care of the duties related to my role of Office Manager and Executive Assistant, which can be extremely various and changes every day.
What do you like most about your role?
I love how my role is always different day by day and never boring. I am constantly in touch with people, both within the company and externally, which is what motivates me every day. There is always a new challenge and something to learn from everyone I speak to.
What are most clients looking for help with when working with you?
Due to the nature of my role, they are mostly looking for assistance. I make sure I redirect any enquiries to the right business units and ensure anyone who gets in touch with our company has an excellent experience. Anything we do and say it’s connected to our “sales role”, right?
If you could have a super power what would it be?
Mind reading. Or eating anything I want without getting fat. I am very undecided between the two.
What is your favourite thing to do on the weekends?
Relax, catch up with friends, being social and sneak in some fun and adventurous activities. Oh, did you only ask for one thing?
If you could change one thing about the world what would it be?
Less egoism and arrogance. I find that people are more and more concentrated on themselves and only care about their own business, without caring about the others and very often stepping over their feet. This is the root cause behind a lot of world issues and it is frustrating thinking how it could be fixed if everyone only made a small effort towards the people they have around. Every small gesture, if put together, can make a big impact.
The last YouTube clip you watched?
A funny video about Sri Lankan sarongs – it cracked me up!
What’s your routine to de-stress?
Kick whoever is annoying me. Just kidding, I enjoy meditation and a nice walk on the beach, nothing is relaxing like the sound of waves. But then I admit a good glass of wine does the job too!
What’s your favourite tech tool?
Don’t take my iPhone away from me!
And lastly, what’s in your backpack?
That is a great question: what do I have in my bag (aka luggage)? I have no idea! I guess lots of useful things that only come out of the bag once in a blue moon – except for the wallet, for some reason that one gets a good daily workout.
