Strengths
Communication
As a communications expert I know how to bring a message across effectively and appropriately. I've been writing and speaking for companies and public institutions for years now and know how to communicate on different platforms.
Creative Thinking
Creating new communication concepts from scratch, drawing up graphics to use on- and offline is something I love. I'm well organized and able to tacle problems with my analytical and creative skills I learned in University and mastered in my daily work.
Organizing
Wether it's organizing the next issue of our employee magazine or an event, I know how to prioritize and complete tasks. This proofed to be crucial especially in crisis, e.g. when I managed the social media accounts of IBB during the Corona crisis.
IT Proficiency
I'm a digital native and thrive in the online world. I've been using computers since I was a kid and as a touch typist can write faster than most people. Understanding and using new software comes easily for me and I also know my way around HTML and CSS.
