Meet Begum Azazi – g2o Turkey DMC

With a healthy appetite for extreme sports, clean living, life-changing travel (plus a small serving of baklava for dessert!), we’re delighted to introduce Begum Azazi, Senior Project Manager for g2o Turkey as our DMC Team Member of the Month.

In her role as Senior Project Manager you’ll find Begum managing projects end-to-end on time, to brief and on budget! Begum is a natural problem solver and has a keen eye for detail, ensuring all technical and logistical elements of a project dovetail perfectly.

Pet Loves: Nature, the sea, travelling, family & friends, music, swimming, cross-fit, reading and ahem, extreme sports – Begum has already experienced scuba diving, bungee jumping, parasailing and has her sights set on skydiving as the next challenge!

Pet Loathes: May we hazard a guess at cross-stitch and watching daytime TV Begum?!

Favourite Food: Although Begum is a self-confessed sports addict and healthy eating is a way of life, she simple cannot resist dark chocolate, baklava and kebab

Favourite Actor: Keanu Reeves

Favourite Music: Rock, Indie and Alternative – Pink Floyd is a top favourite band and Begum has fabulous memories of when frontman Roger Waters performed at a concert in Istanbul in August 2013

Favourite Holiday Destination: Begum experienced her very own road trip over the West Coast of the USA last summer which started in Seattle, visited the coasts of California, Oregon, and passed along the desserts of Arizona and Nevada. Begum fondly refers to this experience as “the holiday of my life”.
