Get to know Lynda at work and what she enjoys as a pastime outside of busy work hours.

1. What path did you take to get to where you are today?

I took an interest in cloud computing and knew I wanted to have a career in a technology related field. It was by chance that I found V3 after I graduated from university. I saw potential in growing alongside the company and have stayed with V3 ever since.

2. What brought you to V3 & what keeps you here?

I would say it’s the opportunity to exchange ideas with fellow industry players, and the exposure to new technologies implementation that make up the main driving factors.

3. What part of V3’s work culture stands out to you the most?

V3’s flat hierarchy provides agility in decision making. Also, it provides us employees with the ability to quickly align on proposed ideas.

4. What’s your fondest memory being part of the V3 team?

Being guided by the management team and also seeing the resilience of our team throughout our time together. We also had a laser tag team bonding game in previous years, which was a fun experience with my colleagues outside of the usual work circumstances.

5. What is one important skill every person should have?

Problem solving skills.

6. What do you like to do in your spare time?

I like to read books and tour museums. Virtual museum tours are a great place to visit during the pandemic. Moreover, museums are a quick way to gain knowledge and exposure. I like that most artists leave their work up for interpretation and I appreciate the curator’s effort to bring pieces together for an exhibition.

7. What’s something that’s got you motivated this year?

The main driving force at work for me now is to fulfil our company’s direction to grow our regional team in Philippines, Malaysia and India, as well as to expand our business regionally. Outside of work, I’ve also been reading this book by Ann Hiatt, Bet on Yourself, which I find highly encouraging and engaging.

8. What advice would you give to other people in your field of work?

Exchange ideas with people, as you never know what they have to say. You get to hone your communication skills and acquire new perspectives along the way, so stay curious, go out and have a good time.
