    As the managing executive for the business unit, I drove and managed the business at a strategic level while keeping a keen eye on the operating profit and mitigating any risks, Together, with my team, the line of business was responsible for being the brand evangelists and business ambassadors throughout the Telkom group. Ensuring the satisfaction of all stakeholders was the driving force of the line of business while making sure that, in tandem, the business was profitable. From weekly cadence calls, to strategizing and presenting to clients, from providing guidance and advise for training and development to creating budgets and overseeing the operations, I lead a high performing team that was enabled and tasked to ensuring that we played a small yet vital part in the organization’s drive to be effective and to have a clear and unobstructed view of attaining their goals and fulfilling the organization’s vision and mission.
