Client Relationships Manager
Manage a set of accounts, be managed globally. Line managers are not that experienced, thus a high staff turnover. Nonetheless they don’t do coffee for free but it’s a good company to work for

A typical day at work
I usually start my work at 7:30 am ,collaboratively plan my day and make sure that the most urgent work get done first before it can get busy.I learn that that starting early will relief a lot of stress that comes with eight hours work.well hen it comes to management they always want things done.I get along with different cultures at corporate
The hardest part of my job is when I can't find a solution for a problem I need to solve
The most enjoyable part of my job is when I can come up with solution and quick

Collaborative, fast paced, interactive, a lot of meetings via phone webex due to being an international company, a lot of training available both face to face as well as online, learnt a lot about myself and my abilities due to the varying job roles I have had the opportunity to have.

Full of Experience Environment
We have a major project which should be presented to our clients on the final day of the prroject. On a typical day,sessions of the software will be developed and tested then presentations will be made indivitually or in groups to explain about our progress and ideas about the development. What I have learnt is how to be part of the working environment and be able to work hand in hand with your team members,also to work together towards a common goal. The management is great with experience international experience from IBM Egypt. My co-workers are good people to work with and they are able to be on par and set the same goal as the whole team. We work as a collective in terms of development. The hardest part of the job is the time constraint that we have to work under but since we work as collective the time is properly managed and divided amongst the team members and the groups making the development to have progress. The most enjoyable part of the job is presenting the outcomes of our development progress and new ideas for the project.
Prosinternational experience from the instructors from egypt, who are well established in the information technology industry
Consnot being able to fully understand new concepts at a critical moment, then you have to take long hours learning the concept.
Senior Sales Executive | Johannesburg, Gauteng | 29 May 2016
A leader at heart with a passion for people - how else do you get things done?
Professionally I am competitive, aggressive, decisive and results orientated. After reviewing all possible angles, I move fast, take risks and get things done now. I love change and challenges.
Personally I am people orientated, a good listener, sociable, optimistic, energetic, spontaneous and enthusiastic.
How else do you lead?
ProsCustomer facing and solution crafting to solve specific problems
ConsBureaucracy and lack of true leadership

It was a Good place to be, I learned a lot
You meet and discuss the way forward with the fellows, the start the technical.
I learned programming and the workplace conduct in order to fullfil the goal of the employer.
They comperate with the staff and provite a super condition to work at.
Smart, understanding, and aprochable. Even when you have different ideas, we strive in to getting the solution that is best for job in hand.
Meeting deadlines in a very shot space of time, Working extra hours and sleep for 6 hours is one of the hardest i have to adapt to.
Analysis of the project where you find many different ideas and try to discuss them in to a single productive solution

Flexible and Mobile Work Office - Long Hours with intense Work Pressure
As a focal point for Mobility Services, my week is a buzz of activity, never quiet, fast paced and no 2 days are the same. Typically a week would include face to face client interactions to discuss services, global or country calls and online discussions from commodity enhancements to RFP data, a lunch time service management meeting with vendors to iron out any issues or developments or negotiating budgets and costs. All this while attending to reports, emails, on-line chats and ensuring that my learning for the week is completed.
The team at IBM SA are understanding and supportive in a very fast paced and challenging company. Some days, we share great achievements and others we offer and receive encouraging words during tough and challenging projects. My resilience has grown to deal with difficult clients and problematic projects. Staying focused on the goals, good leadership and eating the elephant, one bite at a time, is how I manage to get through each day with a smile.
