Profile: Barbara Zierler

My profession:
Trainer Trotec Academy Employed with Trotec since:
September 2014; before that I had worked at Trodat for 5 years My personal work motto: 
Technology & Creativity: The combination drives me on!

This is how I would describe my job to a friend:

I create training documents, for building internal knowledge, and for onsite customer training. This means I also travel a lot (approx. once a month). My job is filled with adventure; you have to dive into the deep end over and over again, but you realize that it's always fun the minute you leap.

I spend most of my work day:

Doing different things – sometimes at my desk, sometimes visiting clients, and sometimes here at the application lab working on the laser machine.

The coolest thing about my job is...

I move around a lot, see a lot, and learn a great deal. I also have a lot of freedom and often given the space to make my own decisions.

The thing I appreciate most about Trotec is:

The appreciation and the responsibility that I'm given.

Something personal about myself:

I enjoy doing craftwork and am always starting new DIY ideas. For example, I built my own terrace and desk. I've also been sailing since I was five years old, and I'm now a sailing instructor for kids at my sailing club on Lake Traun.
