I would invite clients in for light-hearted and hands-on workshops where additional products were offered under the guise of ‘a streamlined product package.’ My ability to empathise with clients and generate revenue led me into my current account executive role where I am excelling. I am the point of contact for a growing number of clients in a variety of sectors including higher education, local authority, online betting, travel and tourism, e-commerce and publishing. With a clear understanding of my company’s products, strong relationships with my clients and a uniquely developed strategy, I contribute a hefty amount of cash flow which plays a key part in the London office hitting it’s quarterly and annual financial targets.
