Four years ago, we introduced you to Wietske, one of Globally Cool’s dynamic International Trade Consultants. Over the years, her role in the team has developed and her skillset has grown.  Reflecting on her career, she emphasises, “it’s not about where you start, but how you adapt and grow along the way.”

Finding the perfect fit

Joining Globally Cool marked a significant milestone in Wietske’s career. She discovered the opportunity while travelling in Vietnam and immediately felt a connection with the company’s values. “It’s a very down-to-earth, flat organisation where everyone is equal. There is no competition; we genuinely help each other. That fits perfectly with my team-oriented mindset,” she explains. Her role involves a diverse array of tasks, from the acquisition of new clients to project management and B2B matchmaking, all of which she finds truly fulfilling.

From teamwork to reaching the end goal

Wietske’s love for working at Globally Cool is driven by the organisation’s supportive and inclusive culture. “The company motivates you to develop yourself. Together with the team, we explore innovative solutions,” she says. Her journey at Globally Cool has been marked by continuous growth and a strong team spirit. Her ability to adapt to different cultures and work environments, coupled with her strong interpersonal skills, makes her a valuable asset to the company. “I love working with people and in a team.’’

“I thrive on the energy it gives me, especially when we achieve something together.”

“I like working on projects that demand the help of several departments,” she mentions when asked about her favourite memory at Globally Cool. “I really enjoy projects that have several elements that connect different talents. Over a certain period, you work towards a common goal together. There are many challenges involved, such as meeting deadlines and maintaining team spirit. It can therefore be stressful, but when it all successfully comes together, it gives such a satisfying boost to see the result of everyone’s hard work and dedication.

Her experiences underscore the importance of a supportive, team-oriented environment in achieving professional success and personal fulfilment. Wietske’s story is a shining example of how the right organisational culture can bring out the best in its people, enabling them to achieve their full potential and contribute meaningfully to their company’s mission.
