Get to know Cemre - lead business analyst at Commencis
Meet Cemre Yalvaç. Cemre has a major in Industrial Engineering and she has been with us for almost 4 years. Currently, she is working as our lead business analyst. She is a fan of acting, and when she is not at Commencis she likes going to the theatre and spending time with her loved ones.
Take a look at her story below and get to know her better.
Why did you join Commencis, and what has kept you here?
Commencis is a leading technology company on a mission to transform leading businesses and help them grow and scale in digital. I joined Commencis because of my enthusiasm for digital technologies. Having a great team around is what keeps me here since my first day. We love what we do at Commencis and we do it with smart, and amazing people.
What are some of the unique challenges you face in your role, and how do you overcome them?
My first demo meeting with our Chairman was very challenging for me as we were presenting the new features of our new big data analytics and customer engagement platform.
After that day, I put myself into his shoes and every week I’ve been preparing result-oriented demos to overcome this challenge.
What is your most memorable moment at Commencis?
At Commencis we strive to learn and grow together. That’s why we have presentation sessions called Commencer Sessions where we share our knowledge and experience with our colleagues. One of my most memorable moments is that when I made a presentation on SEO at one of these sessions. It was memorable because it was a topic that we really worked hard on as a team and most of our colleagues in other teams were really interested in the subject.
Discovering new wine to unwind from work - a favourite past-time activity.
How do you spend your time outside of the office?
I used to act and really loved it but recently I can’t find that much opportunity. My favourite leisure time activities are going to the theatre and spending quality time with my loved ones.
When are you the happiest?
I love acting so I can say that I feel happiest when I’m acting on the stage. And one of my favourite moments was when I acted in my first play called “Faust et Yorick” with my dream team in Izmir.
What are your top three life highlights?
Ranking first in Turkey in a painting contest when I was 12. Moving to Istanbul from Izmir and my trip to England with my high school besties are the top three highlights of mine.
Hanging with the team after a brain-storming session.
If given the chance, who would you like to be for a day?
Natalie Portman in Black Swan movie set.
If you could witness any historical event, what would you want to see?
Queen Elizabeth’s first public speech.
What are your three most overused words/phrases at the moment?
‘There is always hope’, ‘all right’ and “legendary” are my most overused phrases 😊
Probably making my team laugh having used “legendary” too much in our meeting - ha!
