Elena Bassols, Junior Event Manager en Intracon Spain
October 22, 2019
Who are you and what do you do in Intracon Spain? I’m Elena Bassols, I’m 30 years old and from Barcelona. And my modo is: “An objective without a plan is nothing more than a wish” this goes well with what I do in Intracon, since my job is to organise events alongside with the events department we plan and organise all kinds of events for our customers from very exclusive reunions, of about ten persons, that require a personalised focus to bigger events of 300 and even 600 people. team buildings, whatever it could be. How did you get in Intracon Spain ? My arrival at Intracon is a curious story, because before I was working as a project manager for an American multinational company. Around that time I was also concluding my master in Event Management. And then I found this job offer at Intracon where they were looking for a graduated person, meaning someone who just graduated in Events, and well, I put my faith in it. And after the interview they selected me but of course I was a risky bet because I already had a stable job and I accepted this graduate position with everything that it comes with well, but even though it was risky, it was well worth it because it came out right because soon after Intracon also bet on me and hired me and I’ve been here for two years now. What do you like the most about working in Intracon Spain? On one side we have the company in general, the whole company as a team. we are capable of connecting even if you’re not working with a specific department in that moment. there’s this really funny moment, whenever it’s lunch time, we all get together and are all able to collectively detach from work matters and connect with each other in a more personal level and these are actually beautiful moments that I haven’t really experienced in many other companies and on another note, my team, specifically the one work with, the Events team, we have a precious connection. Events it’s a very stressful sector, where you spend a lot of time together with high levels of stress and being able to have that personal and professional connection with the team is wonderful. Is there something we don’t know about you? I’m very transparent so it’s probable that there is not much that people don’t know about me but there is something that I’m very passionate about and that is music and dancing. I’m unable to picture my live without either. I’ve danced all sorts of things, I started as a kid with classic ballet, but, I’ve stumbled upon hip-hop, bellydancing, salon dancing, and right now I’m very into Rock n’ Roll, and it’s something that I’m passionate about, If I’m not dancing I’m not living.
