I’ve just begun my journey at Inspire and it has been nothing short of incredible. It’s been an eye opening experience to see how passionate and hard-working my colleagues are. I’m a firm believer in ‘you are who you surround yourself with’ and I can see a clear distinction as to why this team is grossly successful, everyone’s determination and drive is contagious. I feel both fortunate and privileged to be a part of this team of high achievers.
Within my role, I utilise my skill sets in both sales and marketing to propel Inspire through new client opportunities and brand growth. Inspire is making a real, tangible difference in our clients’ lives and that’s all that matters.
Outside of Inspire
In my time away from work, I spend most of my time enjoying new experiences with family, friends and my gorgeous partner, Linda. I love all types of food & cuisines and almost always tend to try something new every weekend.
In the warmer months you can often find me at the beach with Linda, we particularly enjoy Burleigh Heads down in the Gold Coast. I also frequent my brother and sister-in-law’s dragon fruit farm by the glass house mountains to give a helping hand where and when I can.
How did you get interested in Sales/Marketing?
I feel like Sales & Marketing came to me very spontaneously. Sales, I felt was in my veins… as cliche as it sounds, I’ve discovered that I naturally love to listen and listen to key information in speech and find that people comfortably trust me when I speak.
I have always had an innate interest in Marketing as I’m highly passionate about E-commerce and always recognised the undervalued potential of online marketing.
What is your favourite thing about working at inspire?
I would have to say the cultural diversity. I truly think the purest beauty in our world is the abundance of culture and I’m so lucky to be surrounded by such a wide variety of heritages. I get to hear beautiful stories, see different cuisines and learn more about everyone’s cultures every day. My colleagues are from Malaysia, India, China, Bahrain, Venezuela, Australia, Philippines, Scotland.
What is one of the biggest impacts you’ve made?
I feel that the biggest impact I’ve had is being able to demonstrate my ability to build rapport with people and bringing my closing skill set to the table. Whether it’s over the phone or in person, I find it quite easy to establish a connection and can naturally gauge emotion. I am able to turn more interactions into opportunity by listening and empathising.
What are some books you recommend?
‘How to Win Friends and Influence People’ by Dale Carnegie; it’s the perfect book for nurturing stronger relationships and building trust.
Which Sustainable Development Goal(s) do you choose and why?
My choices are Reduced inequalities and Affordable and clean energy. I feel that every single person that walks this earth should begin life with equal opportunity by default. Unfortunately, that isn’t the case and inequality is prevalent in all walks of life. With regards to clean energy, to give a specific example, fossil fuels are a finite source of energy and renewable resources are non-negotiable.
