About Delia Ene

 Communications & AR Senior Manager Into marketing communications for technology since 1998 and loving it. 

My motto, because it’s what I‘ve been doing in most of my professional life.  I am an advocate of neat communication, well organized and integrated marcom actions. I’ve learnt a lot since I came to Avangate and enjoy the challenge of an impossible-to-get-bored-at job. Also a mother of two, so I have to be quick and efficient at everything I do (oh, that’s a rhyme).

Avangate Values Painting School

Posted on November 10th, 2010 by

In case you missed it: Avangate just turned 5 – Happy Birthday, Avangate! :)

With this in mind and with a strong desire to unwind, we left the office and went for 3 days to the quiet town of Săcele, in the heart of Romania, close to the mountains.

Apart from enjoying the glorious scenery, we did a lot of fun activities to help us bond and discover new ways to put into practice the company values.

We also discovered the artist within. For 4 full hours we went back school, this time to to the art and craft classes. A very special moment. We basically  painted a huge picture split in several pieces. Imagine a large room full of people working frantically, ingeniously mixing colors, and making sure they are consistent across the board (difficult task!), and let’s not forget also the personal touch.
