Meet Daniel, and ask about his goldfish Bread Bun
Daniel’s been with EBC’s UK office since 2017, yet there’s something most people don’t know about him. He had a goldfish called Bread Bun. Try asking him how this curious name came to be.
Being invited to Singapore for Christmas was pretty memorable!
Why EBC? What’s kept him here?
I enjoy the adult environment that has been created and the level of autonomy that I am given to work in a manner that would be successful for the market in Europe.
Dan went on to talk about how different EBC is from other search firms he’s worked for,
The environment is a key piece for me. I have worked with other firms in the past where your day to day can be micro managed and as I started to mature as a consultant and a person, this style began to be difficult for me.
Three adjectives he used to describe EBC's culture:
Adult, Autonomous, Flexible.
Was there a eureka moment that made him realise he made the right decision to join?
It’s more about my interactions with the wider business. They are a great bunch who looks after each other. You can see it from the top down and the way everyone works with each other.
What kind of person thrives here?
A focused individual who has a desire to join an expanding brand.
Why does EBC attract such individuals?
That's because we have a fantastic reputation in the market, both for delivery and working culture.
When friends ask him why they should join EBC, he tells them:
It’s a mature environment and you are given a lot of flexibility to run your business in a manner you see works.
His advice to new joiners:
Work hard, listen and act. You will be backed by the business to be a success. Do those three things and you will succeed.
