At Softcom, I function as an Accounts Manager who champions all of our sales and consulting efforts within the Public Sector space, predominantly at a state level. At a granular level, I ensure that our client’s needs are deeply understood and catered to by proferring and deploying the best solutions.
I would describe my work at Softcom as interesting and challenging. Interesting because of the amazing people I get to work with, our innovative products and the inquisitive customers I deal with daily. It’s also challenging, but in a positive light. This is because when co-creating with clients/prospects, it can be a bit tricky. But the choice to overcome and deliver value is the most rewarding part for me.
I’ve had quite a few proud moments but I’d say one that stands out was when I leveraged experiential selling to onboard 2400+ new users onto the Eyowo platform. Of course, I had my amazing team by my side to make this possible.
For me, choosing to challenge is a reminder that I have a voice and I need to remember to always use it for good. This spans across various aspects from challenging unfair processes to supporting sustainable growth, joining several movements to eliminate gender bias, etc.
I have also started my foundation which is centered around building capacity for the girl child in Sub-Saharan Africa. To think of it, I have always chosen to challenge norms and I will continue to do so.
This would mean equity for all, based on the fundamental problems we are trying to solve as a company using technology. It would mean being known and accounted for, having equitable access to education and a better life. It would mean being considered and factored into plans made by the leaders irrespective of your background.
Overall, having equitable access to provisions for basic human needs.
