Enforced by a heart and mind
Today we welcomed Brit den Biggelaar, our new strategic project manager and coordinator, on board.
Hi Brit, and welcome to One Day. Tell us more about yourself, please.
I lived in Spain, the Netherlands and the UK for a period of almost 12 years. I’ve seen both poverty and riches, and had the privilege of meeting fantastic people. If there’s one thing I’ve learned from my time abroad is the realisation that I love new challenges and learning new things.
What did you work with before you joined One Day?
I have worked as project manager within communication and IT at, amongst others, KLM and Vattenfall since 1997. My previous employment was at Enköping’s municipality where I was responsible for projects within communication and IT. We worked with strategies for social media, built a new intranet and implemented plain language.
What will be your role at One Day?
Here at ONE DAY I will be working as strategic project manager. This means I am going to manage projects and processes, and support projects with a view to become more effective. An important part of my work will consist of increasing projects’ profitability. I’ll be working closely together with our customers in order to understand how to support them the best possible way.
If you got to pick a company to work with, which one would you choose and why?
Ryanair. It is one thing to have a low-budget strategy, but it shouldn’t mean economising on your performance the way they do. I would like to rebrand the company from scratch, from their graphic profile, their uniforms, their customer service to communication and all the processes related to travelling. As it is now, one tends to feel embarrassed flying Ryanair. But it shouldn’t be like that. You should feel savvy about it!
