3 questions to… Yannick Genot, Global Account Manager at Wiz-Team

Why did you join Wiz-Team in 2019?

I was using Event-Works in the European Institution I was working for and I always got a good impression when meeting co-founders Johann and Tim. At some point, I wanted another challenge in my professional life and Wiz-Team offered me the opportunity to evolve and see another aspect of event data management that I was very curious about.

What do you do at Wiz-Team’s Brussel office?

My role involves first and foremost communicating with clients to understand their needs and supporting them with tailor-made solutions aligned and integrated with their processes. That includes discussing and developing new projects, adapting the front-end and back-end of our platform according to our clients’ needs, explaining and applying GDPR recommendations, and managing the events database. I’m also the day-to-day contact point for our Brussels-based clients, which include the European Parliament and European Commission.

What’s one thing that has surprised you about working at Wiz-Team and that you’ve learned through your experience here so far?

I am used to working in a multicultural and diverse environment, and I was very happy to see that my colleagues were from all over the world with different backgrounds and experience. One of the greatest lesson’s Wiz-Team has taught me so far is that a dedicated small team with the right skills can achieve great things.
