The Heroine’s Journey of Ekaterina Barkho

What is the best thing that I love about my work? The people; the team I work with and those that I organise the events for.

What is my idea of perfect happiness? Not worrying about anything and being able to enjoy my time with my family and friends.

What is my greatest fear? To disappoint my parents and myself!

What is the trait that I most deplore in myself? Being sensitive, which leads me to being too soft or the complete opposite – very explosive.

What is my greatest extravagance? Being a desperate romantic and a big time sceptic at the same time.

On what occasion would I lie? To spare someone’s feelings.

What is the influence of role models, in my work and in my life? I believe that everyone can teach you something. My biggest and longest idol I have had is my father, he taught me how to live as well as how not to…

What is the thing that I dislike the most in my work? Unstable and unpredictable.

When and where was I the happiest, in my work? There is not one specific moment, but every time I successfully complete a project and people enjoy my work is what makes me happy.

If I could, what would I change about myself? I am constantly bettering myself…patience would help!

What is my greatest achievement in work? Organising a concert for 400 people without any previous experience.

What is my most inspirational location, in my city? The Victoria & Albert museum in South Kensington. I seem to discover new things every time I go there! A wonderful place full of inspiration with a passionate team of professionals that create the most amazing exhibitions, lectures and events.

What is my favourite place to eat and drink, in my city? The World’s End Market because of its warm atmosphere and professional staff.

Who is my greatest fan, sponsor, partner in crime? I am very lucky with my surroundings, I have too many to name. I have the most caring and loving family and the biggest spectrum of incredible friends.

Whom would I like to work with in the future? I do not have anyone specific in mind. However, I always get excited when I meet passionate and ambitious people with great ideas and always want to learn from them and work on projects with a positive team.

What project, in the nearby future, am I looking forward to work on? I am working on an incredibly exciting and huge project that consists of an exhibition, a book and a movie! This will be a lot of work, but also a lot of fun…
