Nov/2006 – Jan 2010 Optimum Trade Ltd UK
B2B – Sales & Distribution
I started my own natural health company, after negotiating exclusivity on a product line from America, dealing with detoxification of the body. I supplied wholesale to various health retailers, health spas & professionals, who deal with natural health. However with the economic climate in recession it has meant selling the distribution rights by the parent company and so exclusivity for the UK market was no longer an option.
Jan/2010 – April/2010 British Gas Business
B2B – Energy Sales (outbound-cold)
I started the industry with gaining full training on all aspects of the B2B energy market, gaining first hand training from a British Gas Business trainer. During my time in the B2B energy market i excelled in sales and very soon became a top performer. My experience in dealing with business decision makers comes as second nature and this meant flourishing in this industry. In my 1st month after i had achieved 220% above target, it meant early starts and late finishes and some hard work as the market is highly competitive to become a top performer at a times top 50 companies to work. However the company lowered its commission structure which i was not aware of when i joined and so a potential 50k a year job which was earned in previous years now pays 35-40k on the same sales. I decided to leave before settling too much and joined an electricity and gas energy broker instead.
April/2010- July/2010 SME (B2B) ENERGY BROKER
At my time in the energy market i worked on various data with different energy brokers. The data used was mainly cold of which i managed to work it very effectively and efficiently. The reason for leaving was due to the unethical manner in which the brokerage operated, as well as inaccurate and delayed payments and so i have started my own firm.
