I remain calm, pragmatic and stay objective even when people around me would get carried away by emotion. Perhaps its the metal music I listen to which keeps me calm, or perhaps its the team sports I’ve played majority of my life which steers me towards the common goal. I’m transparent, humble, trustworthy and honest both in my work life and private life. Why should people behave differently when they’re at work after all?
There’s many people out there with better education than me, and many people with more experience than me, but none of my old managers wanted me to go when it was time for a change. In fact, all my old managers would recommend others to hire me going forward, or would hire me back in the future. But you don’t have to take just my word for it, as you can find most of them in the references section. This to me is the biggest compliment we can have during our working careers, and that is something I continue to strive for in the future. Now its time to turn the manager references into “Janzu” client references, a new journey I’m excited to embark on.
My core strengths are in project- and process management within financial services, but since 2016 I’ve managed projects from small to very large size across several business functions. The biggest project of my career so far has to be managing a carve out of a multi-million business function to a company of its own. Although managing full IT and ERP migration project does not pale much in comparison. I’m a fixer, the person who gets things done and I truly enjoy it.
My stakeholder management skills are strong on all organizational levels and I’m constantly thinking of end-to-end processes across the business functions. As an experienced, independent and deadline oriented problem solving specialist, I’m creating value by challenging status quo and thrive to eliminate waste from the current business processes. Through international exposure, both privately and professionally, I’ve become highly adaptive to cultural differences and work well within international environment. The fact that we’re all different makes life so rich after all.
Ideally, one day, I will combine my passion to explore the world and make my work location independent. The change would enable me to perform on highest levels at all times and further improves the work life balance. Until this becomes reality, routine remote work possibilities are of high importance. The ever digitizing world supports the location independent work better day-by-day and I see that as a mega trend of the future, which I’m ready to embrace with open arms.
