What is the best thing about working at B2B International?
How B2B International lives up to its name as an international company, the variety and geographical reach of the work that takes place here makes the world feel closer and more connected every day.

What is the best advice you have ever been given?
“Failing to plan is planning to fail” and then “The best-laid plans of mice and men often go awry”

What is your favourite place you have visited – and why?
South Tirol and in particular Bolzano – I travelled around that area for a few weeks during my year off and had the best time hiking, camping in the outdoors and meeting new and wonderful people.

What is your favourite book?
I don’t have a favourite book but I really enjoy the genre Magic Realism. Paulo Coelho, Audrey Niffenegger and Haruki Murakami have been my favourites so far.

What is your favourite pastime?
In my spare time I love doing something creative like painting or playing the guitar but I also like a bit of bouldering and yoga.
