Q: How long have you been working for e2open?
A: I have been working at e2open as of five years on November 5th!
Q: What is your favorite part of your job?
A: I love all aspects of my job, but I would say networking with great people is up there. I love connecting with experienced industry experts as they are so knowledgeable and passionate about their work.
Q: Which has been more valuable in your career, education, or experience, and why?
A: Experience has been most valuable for me. I am constantly learning and developing ideas to leverage our events. Each event is unique to the vendor, with different themes, locations, and topics. Our hands-on experience allows us to be up to date with the trends.
Q: What traits do you admire most in your coworkers and e2open leadership?
A: I admire the passion and enthusiasm of wanting to be successful within themselves and the work they produce with our events.
Q: How has the supply chain industry changed since you started?
A: When I first started at e2open, I was not aware of the importance of having a solid supply chain management system. During my time here, Brexit was a big bump in the road regarding supply chains, but e2open’s solutions have been able to help so many businesses run successfully with our array of solutions to cater to a variety of clients. E2open is constantly developing products to make sure we are up to date with the relevant supply chain trends, like the use of AI.
Q: What is your go-to drink or snack while working?
A: My go-to snack would be frozen grapes (green or red – not fussy 😊), and the drink of choice is a Diet Coke.
Q: If you could trade places with anyone for a week, who would it be?
A: I would love to experience a day in the life of Victoria Beckham. She seems to live a fun, fashionable lifestyle.
Q: What is the best piece of advice you have ever received?
A: Always show up with a smile. A positive countenance will make people comfortable.
Q: If you could only have one food for the rest of your life, what would it be?
A: This is a hard one. I would have to go with freshly baked croissants. I could eat these all day!
Q: What’s your current favorite TV show/movie?
A: I’m obsessed with watching the Selling Sunsets Netflix series, and I can’t wait for the new season to come out this month.
