My year in sales
When I joined the Program, I moved from Copenhagen to London, to start as an account manager on the Crossrail Project. The project is not only one of the largest infrastructural projects in Europe, but in my opinion also one of the most exciting and innovating amongst them. Working on Crossrail is really about leaving a legacy as it will expend the capacity of Londons underground by 5% and remove some of the pressure on the other lines too. I am proud to have been first hand witness to see the amazing engineering work that goes into building a new underground line. Seeing all the installations that you will never see as a passenger and walking on raw concrete platforms underground is a sight I will never forget!
The colleagues I worked with had been handpicked to work on our team and during the year they taught me more about sales than my 6 years in business school. The team was so great we ended up winning the Team Competition in GB, and we got a chance to meet our American Counterparts in Las Vegas for the World of Concrete! Again an amazing opportunity were I got to see some of our very best account managers in action! Despite two days of rain on the open air fair, we still managed to exceed our expectations for the year.
Next up is Finland!
