Susan is a 20 year old graduate of Sociology from Moshood Abiola Polytechnic, Abeokuta. After school, she applied to the sales and business development team of a fintech company in Lagos. That’s her passion and her identified career path. Her biggest aspiration is to rise to the level of a Vice President, Business Development of a fortune 500 company! During her first interview, the interviewer mentioned that the startup just received a first round investment.
‘Yes sir, I read about it. And XYZ Inc is now valued at 420 million Naira and the investment was at an equity of 12% Naira.’ She quickly asked for an opportunity to review the company’s sales strategy as against its revenue target for the next fiscal year. She also mentioned that she is willing to sit with the head of growth to best understand the B2B sales approach so that she could develop some more competitive strategies while creating shared value structure. ‘I’m be willing to come make some proper presentation to the team before I am considered for this role and would also want to review if this is a good fit for my career in enterprise sales.’ She affirmed gently.
The CEO observed with incredible amazement and quickly responded. ’Please come in 2 days. I will ensure I listen to you, Susan.’
