Q&A with Alwin
Describe yourself in three words.
Positive. Outgoing. Curious.
What do you like most about Kekst CNC?
My colleagues all around the globe.
How has the firm changed since you first joined?
It has become more international, more diverse, and more driven by innovation.
What’s the most important thing you’ve learnt from a client?
You need to listen very carefully first and fully comprehend the situation before you are in a position to give advice.
Take the most interesting project you have worked on recently: Why was it interesting?
We ran a crisis training for the global executive team and senior leadership of one of Europe’s largest banks. It was fascinating to see how the teams dealt with a highly realistic cyber breach threating the reputation of the entire organization. Equally interesting were the glitches in the company’s crisis protocols that the training revealed and that we were able to improve together with the client during the subsequent review process.
