“I’m a really social person and I love to meet people. And at Uplace, I have the chance to meet a lot of people. As an assistant and receptionist, I’m often the first person our visitors see. That’s a really unique experience. I also feel a bit like I’m the mother of the team: I’m the first to see them every morning, so I know how they’re feeling that day. Uplace really is a great place to work. Sometimes things are very tough. That’s when I like to throw in a positive note.”
After her secretarial studies with modern languages, Conny worked in the international world of Procter & Gamble. There she began her career as a receptionist while also assisting other departments, such as sales and engineering, to perfection. After 15 years, she wanted to do something similar but on a smaller scale, and sought to return to her first love: the reception desk! Since joining Uplace a few years ago, she has been able to combine two of her passions: providing visitors with a warm welcome and shopping.
