The first interview is with Andreea Vanatoru, HR Professional for JCI Romania.


Trainart: What made you decide you want a career in this field?

Trainart: Which one of your passions would you transform into a business?

A.V.: Jewellery design.

Trainart: How do you measure your own success?

A.V.: By the number of ‘equations’ solved.

Trainart: Who are you, outside work?

A.V.: A free atom within the system.


Trainart: If you only had 24 hours to live, how would you spend your last day?

A.V.: With my little girl, making sure it’s going to be a day she will never forget, a reference point in her life.

Trainart: If you had a message for the entire world, what would it be?

A.V.: We stole the show!

Trainart: What would you like to do if you knew you couldn’t fail?

A.V.: Start my own business.

Trainart: Which was the most difficult decision you’ve had to take this year? Tell us about it.

A.V.: To stay with the same company for the 7thyear and to prove, once more, that I bring added value, with new projects, and without any financial incentives.

Trainart: Tell us about the last time you went out of your comfort zone.

A.V.: A Belbin project – an organizational culture transformation project, design workshops for the management team and extending this project to the entire TESA team – 60 people.

Trainart: What movie/theatre character do you resemble most? What are the similarities?

A.V.: DeeDee( Dexter’s Laboratory) – even if she is a cartoon character, I identify myself with her. We are both curious: „Uuu, what does this button do?”

Trainart: If you were the jury, what would be the reason to pick yourself as the winner?

A.V.: I am the perfect ‘character’ because I bring joy and colour everywhere I am.

Creative Innovation

Trainart: If you could invent a new revolutionary product, what would it be?

A.V.: A ‘serum’ that would annihilate negative feelings (hatred, envy, jealousy, etc). A ‘magic wand’ which could bring memories to the present.

Trainart: If you could pass a law that all the people had to obey, what would it be and why?

A.V.: If it could become a law (thus if it were enforced) I would vote for: ‘Do as you would be done by!’

Trainart: What would be your superpower and what would you do with it?

A.V.: Stretching and compressing time as I wish J – or time travel. Obviously, I would use this superpower for a good cause…and to satisfy my curiosity.
