Meet one of our team: Linda
How long have you worked in sales?
I’d probably say about 30 years in total.
How long have you worked for TLGC?
Just over 4 years but it feels like I’ve always been here, which is a good thing.
Why do you like working in B2B sales?
I would say getting someone to have faith in you. Turning no’s into yes’s. I like the challenge of not taking no for an answer. If someone says they don’t want something then tell me why you don’t want it. I’m a talker so this job suits me.
What do you like about working here?
What is the most challenging thing about your role?
Balancing the team, the client, the prospects and new business so I have lot’s of things I need to balance. Ensuring clients have faith in you and your team. They need a lot of TLC, which can be challenging with my time constraints.
Do you have any tips for a new start?
Ask. Ask. Ask. Good behaviour is rewarded. The more you want something and the more I can see you want something the more likely I am to push you forward. Be keen to learn.
What do you like to do outside of work?
In my spare time I enjoy catching up with my friends and family and love spending time with my dog, Sonny, who is like a replacement child as both my children have grown up and left home!
