A polyglot with communicative power


“You’ll never find one like that – you’ll have to bake one yourself first,” one of the team members interjected when we talked about the ideal candidate for the position of a working student for corporate communications and PR at TSCNET Services. And today? We seem to have found him! Marcos Moschovidis has been on board with us for a few weeks now and is demonstrating his potential in external and internal communications in a pretty impressive way.

Primarily, the 26-year-old is currently completing his master’s degree in politics and technology at the Technical University of Munich. So, the first special feature: While most people in the PR industry prefer lifestyle topics and are at best open to technical issues, our newcomer really understands them. Number two: He fits in one-to-one with the diversity in our company and the European spirit: Marcos grew up in Germany as the son of a Greek father – which is why the “s” in his first name is not pronounced – and a Croatian mother and has a deep personal passion for Europe.

Around the globe…
Let us take a look at a few details from Marcos’ CV. As part of his studies, he was a visiting researcher at Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada, and participated in an exchange programme with the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology for several months. He also completed a traineeship with a Member of the European Parliament in Brussels and worked for the non-profit consulting firm Bavarian Research Alliance in the Department of Environment, Energy, and Bioeconomy in Munich. During this time, he gained valuable experience in informing the public on a variety of EU-related topics via on- and offline tools. This explains why besides classical communication tools he also is skilled in social media. For instance, he very successfully launched his own information project “EU FOR YOU” on Instagram to encourage young citizens to participate in the European elections. Within three months, the project reached millions of people and was mentioned in various media such as the “Süddeutsche Zeitung” or the Bavarian Broadcasting Corporation.

At TSCNET, Marcos will be active in all areas of communication from corporate design and presentations to website and social media channels. He is already very keen, Marcos says, “to persuade the audience of the importance of cooperation and coordination to maintain the world’s largest synchronous power grid”. He will not lack the energy and courage to do so. If so, his Croatian relatives might have the right proverb for him: “A person is worth as much as the number of languages he speaks”. And from Greece, too, there is an appropriate saying: “Here is Rhodes, jump here!” – now prove what you can do. No matter what Marcos will listen to: His new colleagues and the company’s so-called dialogue groups can already look forward to discovering even more special features of this multi-talented man.

Shooting to tell TSCNET’s story


As a joint venture of thirteen power transmission system operators (TSOs) and one of Europe’s Regional Security Coordinators (RSCs), we at TSCNET Services feel obliged not only to our customers, shareholders, and employees, but also to the European society. We want to tell who we are and how we contribute to our customers’ success. For the first time in our four-year history, we decided to get our message out and to connect with our audience by a corporate video. Following a script based on a clear concept, we hired the well-known German film production firm KieferNümann to create an entertaining, informative, and factful short video.

Last week, TSCNET’s busy 24/7 office premises had been turned into a film set – while fully operating! Thank heaven, we only had one day of shooting – lasting from half past seven in the morning until half past nine at night. The only stars: our staff! It was not about professional acting, but passion, authenticity, and keeping it real. Using TSCNET employees was the best way to give our audience an inside look at the company and its culture on a more personal level.

Our first corporate video will have its world premiere at the Open Evening at TSCNET premises on the 16th of October, the day before the international Conference on Electricity and Security Coordination (ElSeC) in Munich, hosted by TSCNET Services and co-organised by the European Network of Transmission System Operators for Electricity (ENTSO-E). One more reason to look forward to ElSeC 2017!
