Yesovens interview: Stefano Volpin
Who is Stefano Volpin? Introduce yourself to our readers…
I am a sunny-natured and happy person, that always tries to smile also in the most difficult situations. Talking with people has always been my strong point and I am constantly curious about understanding the point of view of others.
What does it mean for you to be a Corporate Chef?
I want to be honest: for me to be a Corporate Chef is more than a job, it represents a professional achievement – that perfectly join my past experience as a consumer to my present – interpreting a key role for Yesovens: my support to customers is really appreciated and recognized, it is measurable and it makes me proud of my growth.
You are running into different culinary traditions in the world: are they influencing your personal view of cooking with respect to the past?
Describing in a few lines the concept is complex: to pass on my own Italian tradition to people in the faraway places of the world represents something extraordinary, only comparable to the way in which the same people are changing me: certainly, my view of cooking is influenced but it is only a small part in the process of changing.
You have to be the customer’s voice and to collect his needs in order to create technological development: tell us how this crucial phase takes place.
As I said before, my know-how allows me to understand in all its complexity the consumer’s needs: the use of the same language is fundamental, the listening skill turns the external input into hi-tech progress; this, connected with my experience into different phases of work inside my company, is maybe the nearest definition of the Corporate Chef role: it’s really more than a chef that cooks.
What’s your own interpretation of your company message #MAKEOPPORTUNITYYOURCHOICE?
For me it does mean to remember to the moment in which I chose to be the voice of a new story to tell, that one of the company I represent; it is an opportunity when I perceive that I have helped somebody in any part of the world; when I collaborate with a good team. I can say that I am growing first of all as a person, then professionally: this is my opportunity!
