What is your current role?
I am in Business Development, I define it as a “hustling role” 😊 I belong to the team that “pays for everyone”- That’s what the boss says! More specifically, in my role, we create opportunities for that value to persist over the long term, to keep the floodgates open so that value can flow indefinitely. Above all, I am also responsible for our marketing initiatives, campaigns, and strategies; speaking of which we are in the midst of launching new product offerings aside from our existing newspaper digitization product.
Describe your average day at Media Track?
Don’t exactly have an “average day” at work- we work pretty round-the-clock as we operate 24/7, we have calls with the clients at odd hours because of the time difference but typically- I like to spend my Monday mornings running through my priorities for the week as you know “the early bird gets the worm” and my Fridays thinking of goal settings for the following week, before each day ends, I will ensure my daily tasks are completed and that I have replied all my client’s questions and requests. I am backed up behind a leader and a team who are passionate about what we do, as we are constantly evolving as a company, we work and play hard to secure the results and success we desire as a team.- As Aristotle quotes “Pleasure in the job puts perfection in the work” – …Nah we ain’t perfectionists but we try to perfect our system and ensure the smoothest delivery according to our client’s requirements.
Education and experience:
I am a biotechnology graduate and had a brief experience in the pharmaceutical industry. I have been working in Media Advertising/publishing for 11years. I developed a passion for sales when I discovered my enthusiasm beyond my desires, I love being around people and bond easily with the prospects, it excites me figuring out how I can understand their needs and what will make them say “yes” to whatever I am selling and it kept my interests going because each day brings a new challenge.
I know it’s been a good day when…?
I feel accomplished when I make progress toward the small goals I have set towards my work. Most importantly when receiving positive reinforcement from my boss and colleagues absolutely drives my day.
What do you like most about the job?
In Media Track, we have the “work hard, Play Hard” mentality, and that is one of the things I love about us. Passion and commitment are important. I am constantly surrounded by a team with a vast amount of industry knowledge who are always willing to spread that knowledge as much as possible. Go Media Track!! 🙂
