What is a cool opportunity that I’ve had while working at Intel?
One of the best projects I worked on was self-initiated when Intel Swindon hosted the UK Corporate Games. It was a huge event with over 6000 people from over 150 companies from the UK traveling to participate. It turned out to be one of the largest events Intel Swindon has taken part in. It not only prompted employees to start new hobbies, and improve health and fitness, but was also a great way to meet people in other departments and a great boost for morale. The project was so successful, I am currently planning for Team Intel to take part in the next Corporate Games, this will be the fourth consecutive year!
Why do I think Intel is a great place to work?
There are just so many opportunities at Intel, not just from a career perspective, but also for person development, variety, the chance to get involved in exciting new projects that benefit the local community and other employees. I get to work with interesting, intelligent, fun people all around the world on a daily basis, from different countries, cultures and backgrounds. I look forward to coming to work where I get to work on challenging projects, where I learn or am exposed to something new everyday—and socialize and have fun with a really great bunch of people!
What has my career path been at Intel?
I started as a Project Manager supporting ADC (Application Design Centre), and then I was a Customer Business Operations Business Analyst/Project Manager. Currently I am the EMEA (European, Middle East, and Africa) Business Lead for the SAP (Systems, Applications and Products) Replatform project.
What do I do when I’m NOT at work?
I like to keep fit by going to the gym a few times a week. I love to spend a lot of my free time with friends and family. One of my biggest distractions is my gorgeous eight month old nephew! I can happily lose a few hours in his company! I like to travel to see and experience other parts of the world. And I like to shop!
What’s the most adventurous thing I’ve ever done?
A tandem skydive from 14,000 ft over the rainforest and Great Barrier Reef in Australia earlier this year! It was such an incredible experience. I am doing another one in the new year to raise money for the British Heart Foundation.
What’s my favorite holiday destination?
My favorite city holiday destination has to be San Francisco. The city has so much to offer, and there’s so much to see and do there. I don’t think I could ever get bored of visiting!
