Meet Gerte - our member of the month in August!
Introduction round: Who are you and where are you from?
My name is Gerte and - I guess this might be special in this place – I am originally from Berlin, grew up in Berlin and still live here.
What exactly do you do? What's in the pipeline for the near future?
I work as a Senior Copywriter and Editor, but I also do public relation and advertising. The clients I work for are quite diverse. On the one hand I work as an Editor for the Federal Environment Ministry in the area of climate protection and energy services and on the other hand I work as a PR Manager for the BMW Berlin-Marathon. I also work for different advertising agencys as an editor/copywriter in retail, e-commerce, gaming, energy, banking and brand design. All together it's all about communication and text – in German language.
Since when do you cowork at Office Club?
I started in December 2014 and normally I sit near the window towards Pappelallee.
What is the benefit of using a coworking space for you?
For a freelancer like myself the work load is typically very skewed over the year. There are times when I would need to work day and night, at others it is less and I can do it from home or work at the client's site. That is why it would be less convenient to rent a space permanently. At Office Club I can adjust my usage acccordingly. It is great to be able to choose when to use this type of professional working environment.
Which questions / problems could you help your coworking neighbour with?
That is pretty straight forward. Whenever you need to find the right words, I am the one for you – in German. I do copy, research and fine tune. Try me on demanding, technical content. I can turn out clear and acceessible language in B2B or B2C context. Also, I can devise strategic communication concepts and campaigns.
Do you have favourite spots in Berlin? Something to recommend / consider especially for people coming here?
One of my favorite spots is the Grunewaldturm. Every time I go there I can’t believe that there is so much water and forest in Berlin. It is really amazing to climb up that tower.
