This is Celeste Rooswinkel – Planning

Our team consists of about 40 employees, so there's always something to tell. In the section 'This is' we interview a colleague about his or her work, but also about dreams, trends and what we have just wanted to know about it. This is Celeste Rooswinkel!

Hey, Celeste! Who are you and what are you doing at
Buro N11? Hi, I’m Celeste Rooswinkel, married to Olof Verweij and mother of 12-year-old Sven. Since the beginning of this year, I have been working on the planning and occupation of our content department and our designers.

What do you like about it?
Until January, there was no good planning for the content department. I set up this one and thus provides insight into the number of hours available and scheduled. It’s great to see that it helps the organization. How do we get the work done if, for example, more work is planned one day than there are available hours? That piece of puzzling, I like to do that.

What are you most proud of?
That after 18 years of working at Buro N11 I still find new challenges in my work. In those 18 years I have had several positions in various departments and made contacts with many colleagues and different customers – that diversity keeps it interesting to me.

How do you keep up to date with what’s going on in your field?
Keeping ears and eyes open when information comes at me and asking questions and listening to colleagues.

What’s the last book you’ve read?
Currently I read My Story: Becoming by Michelle Obama. In my view a smart and admirable woman.

About the photo: from where the paddle?
Two years ago I went canoeing and suppen with friends and the children (stand up paddling). I liked that suppen so much that I bought my own plate now. We recently moved in to the water, so the sup is quickly in the water and I paddle through the narrow waters along the reed lands behind us.

What three things are you happy about?
Through everyone’s activities, I can enjoy it enormously when we are all at home and are together as a family. Those are those blissful moments. I also get happy with sailing in our boat, emptying the head. And from strawberries on rusts. Now that the strawberry season is in full swing, the suits are flying out of the closet!

What are you listening to in the car?
Evers Op op at Radio 538 I found a fantastic radio program. Since Edwin and his team stopped, I haven’t found a nice replacement program in the morning on my way to work, so I’ve put on music myself. My music style varies enormously, actually I like everything: from pop, ballads, rock to country and from music from the eighties to today’s music.

What’s your biggest dream?
It sounds cliché, but getting healthy old with my sweet and son and still making a lot of beautiful trips.

What question would you ask which colleague?
What’s the biggest fish you’ve ever caught, Roy?
