How I chose my career?
I was headhunted, although I started working immediately after school. so gaining work experience and studying part time was the right thing to do.

My expectations:
Having a well paid job doing little as possible however the bigger picture was different. I enjoyed working in a office environment at the time however was stronger and more successful when I dealt with people outside the office. work hard enjoy the rest. NEVER would I want to change anything!

A typical day for me includes:
Face to face meetings with senior level execs. Flying Monday to Friday across Africa, Indian ocean islands and Europe and middle east. Been in the role for 4 months and exceeded 1st half year targets. Its about passion ...enjoying what you do and doing it well. probably being promoted within 6 months.

I love/hate this career choice because:
I love this career choice as it combines all the latest technology and am able to bring it to the people ...its what I do best!
