Naomi Globalme Content Coordinator
My name is Naomi, and I am Globalme’s Content Coordinator. In other words, you can think of me as the Robin to our Marketing Manager’s (Erik’s) Batman (except less of a professional crime-fighter and more of a professional peanut butter-eater). Born and raised in Hong Kong to a Dutch Dad and American-Chinese Mum, I fit right in with the culturally diverse and dynamic team that is Globalme. What most people don’t know about Hong Kong, is that 70% of it is country park; the city itself is only a small portion of the entire territory. I grew up on an island called Lantau just 30 minutes away from the city centre by ferry. Lantau is filled with mountains thick with jungle, wild water buffalo mowing down on grass, and waterfalls tucked away in secret crevices only the locals know about. Naturally, the mountains, lakes and waterfalls of beautiful British Columbia called out to me from across the globe, and I traveled to Vancouver (a place I had never visited and had no family or friends) to pursue a degree in Communications and Marketing.
After an internship turned full-time position with a Hong Kong based startup called Notey, I was hooked on the rollercoaster ride that is #startuplife and emerging tech. I love working with passionate people who are as excited about disruptive and life-changing technology as I am; and it’s clear that I’m surrounded by those people here at Globalme. I am a social media addict and content-creator at heart (whether that be writing, art, or music), but can flip on my ‘networking’ switch with a flick of the wrist. Beware – if you tell me to chase someone down at a conference or networking event, I will quite literally chase them with my name card in hand and an elevator pitch at the ready.
I’m super excited to continue taking on new projects and challenges while at Globalme, and will make sure to keep posting about all the company shenanigans that go on behind-the-scenes! I have to admit, it’s a ton of fun creeping around the office snapping sneaky photos of everyone.
