Every month we'll shine our virtual spotlight on one of our community's members. It's just a fun, easy way for us to get to know one another a little bit beyond our work-related interactions here on the site.
This month, we're shining the spotlight on Anne-Marie Arnvig from Websydian -- who also happens to be a CA Plex CA 2E Community Board Co-President.
Websydian is located in Denmark, in Søborg which is just outside Copenhagen
Before working for Websydian I worked at an advertising agency and at Danish Technological Institute in the center for research in concrete technology
What do you enjoy about your work?
There are many things I enjoy about my job at Websydian. However, two things stand out. It sounds corny, I know, but I get really happy when the Websydian development and support team gets praise. They deserve it. With a team like the Websydian guys I get so much positive feedback from customers that my job as the relations manager is a constant joy. Regarding communications management I find the entire process of communicating continuously fascinating.
About your family
In my private life I’m the proud mother of two incredibly clever, gifted and beautiful teenagers (You would never have guessed the proud part, right?).
Three favorite movies
I'm not much of a movie buff but I like a good movie, and there are a couple I can watch over and over again: Gosford Park - a ”who done it” and a great portrait of British society in the 1930’s and the imminent downfall of the empire. And, The Nightmare before Christmas – clever, funny and poetic stop motion.
My favorite book (or books) is the trilogy 1Q84 by Haruki Murakami. Man, it’s weird.
My hobbies include running, yoga, food and art. There’s nothing like a touching exhibition followed by a well-cooked meal. When we go to Austin for The 7th CA 2E/Plex Worldwide Developer Conference in May 2015 I will try to make time to visit the HOPE outdoor Gallery (If it still exists then).
Interesting fact about yourself
I didn’t know my real name until the age of six when I started first grade. I was so surprised to find out I was actually called Anne-Marie. Until the teacher called our names the first day in first grade, I had no clue.
Thank you, Anne-Marie for being under the spotlight! Cheers!
