Sietse, do you miss working with the esctoday.com team?
“Yes, I do. Actually, I didn�t think I would miss it so much. Even though my new job provides great new challenges, it cannot be compared to the atmosphere inside the esctoday.com team, the challenges we faced and the informal approach. After six years of fun, who would expect something else?”
How was the transition from working for an independent site to working for EBU?
“From the EBU as well as from the esctoday.com team, I got a lot of support during the transition period. After some reorganization, esctoday.com is growing more than ever, so I�ve heard, new people joined the team and coverage becomes more and more extensive. That�s certainly worth a compliment to the current team. On the other hand, everyone at the EBU is very excited about the current changes and everyone's very supportive.”
How different is it to work for EBU?
“Even though I had a clear picture of my new job when I started, I learned a lot over the past months. Of course, it�s a lot different from working on an independent website, which partly has the task to reflect and criticize the EBU�s activities. That�s a very healthy task, but cannot be compared with the role of an event site, which simply has different objectives. Working at the EBU is hard working, but very excited, full of challenges and inspiring”.
