This week, we had the pleasure of speaking with Sophiko Gochitashvili, our Operations Officer based in the Tbilisi office. Continue reading if you want to learn why Sophiko decided to join BlueOrchard, what she likes most about working here, and how she makes an impact in her private life.

Sophiko, why did you join BlueOrchard?

After working three years at one of the «Big Four» accounting firms, I was excited to join a company generating social and environmental impact alongside a positive financial return. I was happy to share the same values as BlueOrchard. Here I can be part of an international company with different cultures, nationalities, and educational fields, across several offices.

And what do you like most about working at BlueOrchard?

Definitely my colleagues. What I like most about the company is the people I have a chance to work with. BlueOrchard’s team spirit is what motivates me to feel positive and energized to meet everyday challenges at work.

How do you make an impact in your private life?

By motivating myself to improve every day. In today’s fast changing world, sometimes it feels like you’re not progressing toward your goals. One way to avoid this feeling is by breaking down big goals into smaller actions. While it is not easy, continuously making conscious decisions to improve yourself can feel empowering and motivating.

Also, having my family and friends behind my back is always an amazing source of motivation.

Lastly, what is the best advice you have ever been given?

“Fortune favours the brave.”

Thank you, Sophiko.
