Software Account Manager 

Quick Fire:

My last meal on earth: I should probably go for something classy and expensive, but the truthful answer would be a big tasty with bacon meal from McDonalds!

The album I’d take to a desert island: Red Hot Chilli Peppers - Californication

The movie I could have on repeat: Shawshank Redemption

On my bucket list: This is a great question, I think visiting South America is up there

At OGL...

I work with our software customers, which involves regular visits to understand their business requirements and demands to help them maximise our system.

The thing I’m most proud of in my job is.…

Making a difference! I really get a buzz out of helping customers utilise our software to benefit their business either through helping sell more, or improving processes.

People may not know that in my role…

I’m not, and don’t need to be, technical! People often say, ‘you work in IT, can you fix my laptop?’ No, I can’t but my support team can 😊.

Before OGL I…

Went to university in Swansea to study business and marketing. I then had various roles before joining OGL at the tender age of 23.

What I like most about working at OGL is…

Getting to know people. I take pride in understanding customers' businesses and how they use our software, but also understanding the people I am visiting is just as important to me.

The best career advice I’ve been given…

More of a Richard Branson quote, ‘If someone offers you an amazing opportunity and you're not sure you can do it, say yes - then learn how to do it later’.

When I was growing up, I wanted to be…

An actor! You wouldn’t believe it given that I’m not usually the loudest person in the room, but I always wanted to be a film star growing up.

Away from the office you’ll find me…

Watching football, usually Kidderminster Harriers or Arsenal. I’m also captain for my local darts team, so if I’m not throwing some arrows you may find me wedding planning (so I’m almost always throwing arrows at the moment to stay out of the way).
