‘I’m the greatest table tennis player in the office’
Can you tell us about your role and responsibilities at Invotra?
My role at Invotra is to open and facilitate conversations with potential customers of our intranet service. Within this I am able to confidently open conversations via several means of communication one example being phone calls. In addition to this I am then responsible for booking and conducting detailed product demonstrations of the Invotra solution to the potential customer highlighting their objectives through our solution.
How did your journey begin at Invotra?
Before Invotra, I worked as a carpenter for a year. However, I knew I wanted an office job. Unfortunately, I didn’t know what direction to take but I did know that I didn’t want to go to university. I ended up choosing a project management apprenticeship as I knew the skill was applicable to many sectors and organisations. One skill that I could take anywhere essentially.
What is important to you when it comes to working culture?
Trust is key to having any form of happy culture in an organisation. Both within the internal business of an organisation like Invotra and the business it does with its customers.

My role was that of a full product demonstration to all of the main stakeholders within the Test and Trace organisation demonstrating to them the key requirements involved in their new digital engagement platform that would help facilitate and run the overall programme within the NHS.

I would like to close a multi million pound deal that drastically changes the work and options of Invotra as an organisation.
Is there anyone in particular, living or dead, that has inspired you throughout your career progression?
My grandad. Before retirement, he owned a kitchen and bathroom company. He was always a Lord Sugar figure to me, demonstrating what hard work and determination can get you. Also, my great grandad who fought in the war as a paratrooper. He always wore a suit and tie highlighting the need for me to have good presentation and manners.
