What is the first thing you read in the morning?
“My emails on my phone. Martin Bencher Group is a worldwide company, which means that people work all hours a day at different places – China, South East Asia, Europe and USA. So, there is always some catching up after a good night’s sleep”.
What are you usually listening to?
“I am still trying out audio books while I go for a walk. However, I might be a bit too impatient because it has not yet become a success. Although I prefer listening to music while running – that works much better for me.”
What do you watch?
“I like watching movies and TV-series. The latest TV-series that I watched and can recommend is “The Undoing” with Nichole Kidman. I am a great fan of all her work.”
Who do you follow?
“I mainly follow business related companies and individuals to receive news and updates within finance, IT, and logistics. I also use LinkedIn to be updated on my professional network and the great connections that I have across businesses.”
What do you experience right now?
“The COVID-19 pandemic makes it difficult to have face-to-face meetings and being in the office with colleagues. As “new joiner” in the Martin Bencher family, it is a challenge to build up relations without meeting physically. However, I have realized, that a world-wide company as this, management on a distance is just daily business.”
