Nurgül Atayer - Marketing Communication Manager, Atlas Copco Industrial Technology

Tell us a little about yourself and what drives/motivates you in your career?

What motivates and drives me in my work is to see results and learn something new every day. For the past four years, I have worked as a global marketing communications manager where I run large concept and product launch projects, among other things. In a global role like the one I have, you get a great understanding of how different cultures act and how to communicate on their terms. This gives me a lot of energy and motivation as I myself have a background in another culture. I always look for new challenges in each assignment, which makes it possible for me to constantly develop in my job.

What can mentoring contribute to a person's career and how can you help?

It is an honor for me to have the opportunity to inspire and motivate a person for their future working life. I myself have had mentors and role models along the way who have supported me in my career, so I know how much it means. Being able to help a person find their driving forces, helping them see working life from different angles, and supporting them in different discussions feels incredibly exciting. In addition, I think I have a lot to learn from a recent graduate and see this as a mutual exchange of experiences which makes it even more fun. Now I look forward to sharing my experiences of working in an international marketing environment, and much more.
