A company is a system of communicating vessels.
In other words: I am not alone. I have always been lucky enough to have very supportive people around me – like my parents, for example, who gave me the confidence to go after my goals.
Then, when I joined the surety industry, I had to learn basically everything from scratch. It was my colleagues who helped me on that journey. And, despite my limited experience, my managers at Allianz Trade trusted me and believed in my potential, right from the start.
I see this collaboration and cooperation in practice every day at Allianz Trade. Take our systems as an example. One of my colleagues noticed that I had a flair for picking up new tech, so they recommended me as a surety systems superuser. This role has given me huge respect for work that is not necessarily seen. Behind every well-functioning system, there is a team of people working hard for weeks – or even months – to make that happen.
