Q&A with Valentina
Describe your typical day.
What makes our job exciting is that no day is like the other. What I can tell you however is that it always involves lots of coffee and chocolate. Did I mention coffee?
Take the most interesting project you have worked on recently: Why was it interesting?
The market entry of a leading Middle East cinema provider into Saudi Arabia, shortly after announcing the lifting of the cinema ban among a couple of other social and political reforms. The transformation the Kingdom is undergoing is fascinating and by far more insightful to witness from within the region.
How has the firm changed since you first joined?
It became bigger and bigger. We merged with JKL in Stockholm and then combined with Kekst. The Kekst CNC family is growing and every year we meet new friends and colleagues at the summit. One thing that didn’t change though, and what I value most, is our culture and the spirit of our firm and our people.
What advice do you have for aspiring communications professionals?
Speak up and voice your opinion. Also, always ask when you are not sure about a task you are given and remember, no question is a stupid question.
What gets you out of bed in the morning?
My lovely team in the Dubai office. I feel really blessed to work along inspiring and driven people who I not only call my colleagues but my friends.
