Q&A with Leonard
Take the most interesting project you have worked on recently: Why was it interesting?
Projects dealing with special situations and crisis communication. In those situations, the client is particularly in the focus of the public debate and of political stakeholders. Quick and considerate action is required to protect the reputation. Many clients are very open to introduce reforms and make decisions that would take much more time in day-to-day business. This dynamic is particularly exciting to me.
Who or what inspires you?
The tension between economics and politics and the major social developments we are currently facing.
What gets you out of bed in the morning?
An exciting and varied job that challenges me with issues, which other people only read about in the newspaper.
What do you enjoy most about working at Kekst CNC? How does working at Kekst CNC challenge you?
Kekst CNC is a pool of great minds with different backgrounds and expertise. It is an inspiring working environment that challenges and encourages me.
Which gadget could you not live without?
Not a gadget but Tabasco!
