This is the photo-story of Order-to-Delivery and CEE Scheduling Admin Team Lead Krisztina Lorincz, based at Shell’s SBO Krakow Centre in Poland. Krisztina puts her considerable energy towards every challenge, which she sees as rich experiences.
Krisztina Lorincz plays a critical role at Shell, ensuring that fuel is delivered safely and on time for customers and Shell Retail stations across Central European countries. She’s Hungarian, and has been living and working in Krakow, Poland, for four years. Krisztina loves nature and adventure, and says she has the same energetic approach to life as her mother.
I’m Krisztina, and I’m working in Krakow for Shell’s fast-paced Order-to-Delivery team. I share the same zest for life as my mother, and have approached new opportunities in my eleven-year career at Shell with the philosophy that I like to turn a challenge into an experience!
I thought long and hard about what powers me as I am very energetic! I’m like my mother in that respect; she is absolutely tireless, and never wants to sit still. I love to sing and dance, just like she does; we’re both powered by the rhythm of life!
Even now that she’s retired, my mother will climb trees to pick fruit, bake Pogácsa bread for family gatherings, or look after my nephew, Vencel. She says it’s her positive attitude and self-belief that keeps her smiling.
I’m definitely inspired by her, and I always share her cakes with my colleagues because I like caring for people, and doing things that will make them cheerful. I think it’s important to have a kind-hearted approach in life.
I like to turn challenges into experiences, and that’s an attitude I have in both my personal life and when I’m at work. In this image, I’m with the terminal manager and a driver during a trip to Moscow, Russia. I’m wearing protective gear that keeps me safe while on the job. Safety, compliance and efficiency are all paramount in our operations.
This is another side to my business trips. This image is also in Moscow, but during some free time. I’m always open to new experiences, and I’m very lucky in my career to have these opportunities to travel. The beauty of these flowers on this trip struck me, as I feel flowers symbolise harmony.
The ability to explore is something that I really value about my role; not only do I get to work in a number of locations around the world, but I also get to discover their cultures and visit places I otherwise might not go to.
Here, I’m having a kaizen workshop with colleagues, which is all about continuous improvement, something that is very important at Shell. This one focused on new legislation in our Polish market.
We always make sure we’re ready for change on time, especially when it is to secure our license to operate. However, we never miss the opportunity to check back and make any adjustments we need to improve further. These meetings are essential, because sharing knowledge and discussing concepts and solutions are, I think, the most effective ways to reach the right conclusions.
I’m not in this picture, but this large room full of people shows the diversity of the Shell colleagues I work with. This was a meeting held in Krakow for the Order-to-Delivery team and includes employees from other locations such as Kuala Lumpur and Manila. I like to find out about other people’s cultures and backgrounds, and exchange knowledge whenever possible. I’m very thankful to my leaders who provide opportunities to explore new challenges and continuously develop. That’s one of the things that makes this job special.
Outside of work, I love spending time outside with my family and friends. I can’t get enough of the natural world, and don’t feel I spend enough time connecting with it. This image is a particularly wonderful memory. Here I am in Laos. I remember loving the feeling of my hand in a waterfall; it was so clear and powerful!
My lovely niece Luca and I like to have fun together. Here we are playing a guessing game, and it always leads to a lot of laughter. I believe that using your voice in this way keeps you positive and, again, it’s tied into my belief in the energy of rhythms.
