I had the pleasure to work with Vanessa in her role as People Engagement Manager at Babbel. It was very quickly visible how passionate and curious Vanessa is when it comes to her role and collaboration with teams and managers - on the mission to help them thrive. She has very quickly added a strong value to the team, being proactive with solutions and ideas, being eager to learn and adapt to new challenges and always keeping in mind how her work can impact the people she works with positively. She also is very eager to come with a great balance of data focus and people focus in her approach to collaborating with teams. I can only recommend her as a great colleague as well authentic and enthusiastic individual.
