It’s that time again, another new face for me to introduce you to – everyone, say hello to Gregor!
Hi Gregor, welcome to the team. Tell us what your role is at Connect Three and what you do.
I’m the Learning Coordinator, my role is split between coordinating the learning projects, research and delivery of those projects and supporting business development.
Amazing! We’re so glad you’re here. I know you haven’t been with us long, but what has been your favourite moment in Connect Three so far?
Does finding out that our Chief Explorer was gluten-free like me count? It means there’s always snacks in the office, and beers at the parties that I can have!
Haha! I’ll let you have that one. I know like a lot of the team you are a big reader, so what are you reading right now?
‘Quiet: the power of introverts in a world that can’t stop talking’ by Susan Cain. As a very extroverted person it’s interesting to hear more from an introverted perspective.
Lovely, I like a good book recommendation. Next up - which business leader would you like to have a cup of tea with?
Yvon Chouinard – founder of Patagonia: I think all businesses should be led with his mindset.
Oh, great choice! OK, finally, if you could only give one piece of advice to people starting out on their career reading this, what would it be?
Take time to decide who you want to be and where you want to go. If you’re willing to spend 2 hours planning a week-long holiday then, by the same ratio, you should spend 6 months of working hours planning your career. I got this from 80,000hours.org and it completely makes sense to me!
Thank you so much for your time today Gregor – I’m sure we’ll be hearing from you on the blog again soon!
