Keep calm and succeed: Plinio Gustavo, our October ‘Go the Extra Mile’ winner

When Plinio Gustavo, Multimedia Producer, was asked to help as second producer on a complicated webcast, he jumped in right away. Plinio executed flawlessly and remained calm while changes were being thrown at him and he was able to put his colleagues’ minds at ease that everything would work out fine – and it did!

This remarkable professional attitude helped him get selected as our October ‘Go the Extra Mile’ winner. His calm problem-solving behaviour has been an asset to the Events team since he arrived in 2014. ‘We are so lucky to have him on our team, he is always jumping in to help and problem solve.’

We caught-up with Plinio to know more about himself, his win and his work.

Q. Can you tell us more about your day-to-day work as Multimedia Producer?

Generally, the day-to-day work of the Events team is busy but pleasant. From event to event and from client to client we learn more, help each other more and become stronger as a team.

Q. One quality your colleagues praised with conviction was your calmness under pressure. How do you manage that?

I consider being able to stay calm in adverse situations is a real strength. It proves to ourselves, our companions and our clients that we can be relied on when it matters. We are a reliable source of positivity. I always have in mind that there is no situation or difficulty that last forever. When balance is found it is possible to move on. It’s like a mantra for me.

Q. You arrived in the company six years ago. What’s been your main professional challenge at the Cloud Communications division of NTT Ltd.?

Because we are a big company, we must always adapt to different situations that are presented to us. This is a challenge that is making us stronger every day.

Q. Which NTT Values (Speed, Execute, Together) best suit the way you work?

There isn’t a specific value to which I identify more than the others. The three values, Speed, Execute and Together suit my way of working because there is always a situation to which each one is best applied.

Q. What do you like to do in your spare time?

Many things! I like to enjoy time with my family and exercise for the physical and psychological benefit, to have a healthy mind in a healthy body. I also love to travel and get to know new cultures. It is impossible to quantify this indescribable feeling of knowing the world in which we live! I also like games, because why not?
