Meet Yilia Feng, a B2B Regional Key Account Manager, based in China. Here, she tells us about sharing different hobbies and activities to bond with her team of colleagues, who seem more like a big, happy family.
My name is Yilia, I’m a B2B Regional Key Account Manager, based in China. I joined Shell’s big family in August 2014 as a Shell Graduate after completing my bachelor’s degree. During my 3 years in Shell, I have taken both roles in Indirect and Direct Sales within the Business-to-Business Lubricants (B2B Lubes) team.
I love dancing and taking photos during my spare time, and I have found so many colleagues-cum-friends who have made my life so colourful by sharing the same hobbies!
This a picture of me with my line manager and colleagues. We always have so much fun together. We are more than a team. We are one big, happy family!
In 2016, we formed a girls’ team to compete in the HK Oxfam Trail-walk. It was a charity challenge where we had to finish a 100km mountain climb together as a team. We finally made it after a tough 39 hours of hiking with no sleep!
We accompanied and encouraged each other through the whole adventure. Our friends were there and supported us to persevere and complete the 100km mountain-walk challenge.
Outside work, our all-girls group enjoy dancing together. We also perform our dance routine at annual parties and banquets; all choreographed by ourselves.
Can you believe this wonderful wedding picture was taken by one of my Shell colleagues? We have a Photography Club at Shell, where we enjoy spending time together to take pictures.
We have a lot of opportunities to organise company events and parties. We love working together on such fun projects, even after our working hours. It can be challenging and tiring at times, but I get a great sense of accomplishment when the project team works together towards a common goal!
