Tell us how your career path brought you to Workbooks
I started my career in recruitment, while working there the company wanted to upgrade its existing CRM system with a better fit for their needs. I was heavily involved with the implementation and then the internal go-to for training, troubleshooting and configuration. I soon realized that I much preferred this to recruitment so decided to make a change into the SaaS industry to support customers.
How do you use CRM in your day-to-day working?
I can’t work without CRM, my memory is terrible and in my role there is a great deal of demand from various stakeholders. So if something is not logged in Workbooks I simply won’t do it. I also do a lot of database configuration, building configuration for customer requirements means that I am working with every aspect of CRM every day.
What do you like most about working at Workbooks?
It’s a close tie between the people and the scope of the role. I am never bored here; constantly being stretched and having to think of creative ways to overcome problems. My colleagues are great fun, it’s a very interactive office with a constant buzz.
What would be your best weekend activity?
Hiking & Camping, unplug and see some mountains.
What piece of advice would you give to your younger self?
Don’t sweat the small stuff.
What is your favorite flavor of cake?
