I am a Chemical Engineer and have completed my course in Business and Management with a Post Graduate Diploma (Full-Time) from the University of Bradford UK, in 2008. I also have a Masters degree in Business Economics and a Post Graduate Diploma in International Trade.
I am currently working as a Consultant with ORIFLAME UK LTD with objectives of Sales Maximization of the cosmetic products in Leicester.
I have earlier worked as an Entrepreneur with the job responsibilities of consulting with the small and medium enterprises in matters of plant machinery and on matters of best technical specifications, pricing, availability, applications etc to get the most optimum results.
I have five years of work experience in the field of Industrial Sales in reputed companies like DUNLOP INDIA LIMITED, HICO PRODUCTS LIMITED, GULF OIL INDIA LIMITED and CASTROL INDIA LIMITED.
I have in all my jobs, been selected with the responsibility of starting and developing new Industrial business, especially dealing with Industrial grade products. It has been a difficult but challenging task as the Industrial sector in India required and deserved a changed perspective after the liberalisation, which witnessed the incoming of and tie-ups with many foreign and Multinational Companies.
The race was to capture the largest of market share.
This required sound technical knowledge and total devotion to the Industrial job. Earlier, the Industrial sector which had been relegated to a corner had to be brought into the mainstream. The prospects of profits were unlimited and very promising.
The companies sought and vied with each other to get the vast and cheap labour market in India to produce the most cost effective and profitable products for the International market. 'Outsourcing' is the term which is the offshoot of such efforts.
My responsibility lay in systematically studying the concerned Industrial Market, analysing them for prospective business dealings and then narrowing down to focussing on the targeted Industries, with the available products and services.
'Breaking the Ice' would be the optimum term to describe the job but consolidation and revival were also not detached from the main responsibilities.
The job comprised Contacting often 'Cold-Calling', Convincing and following ups and also included the technicalities of commercial nature and product specifications including applications which have now become the mainstay any Industrial business deal.
The country was divided into zones, regions and subsequently stock-points or depots to cater for them.
Due training was given on the job and the skills were nurtured to carry on the task successfully.
I performed well in all the companies bringing in new business and laying the foundation for new departments and divisions with more people joining in to take up and carry on the Industrial jobs.
It was a very rewarding experience.
I worked on my own for a few years till I decided to go for degree in Management ( MBA ).
I possess the skills of Industrial selling, team working, problem solving,etc. In my current course I have
learnt the Presentation, Career Management and Report writing skills.
I shall be gladly looking forward to enhancing my growth prospects and contributing creatively and productively in a challenging atmosphere in the business world.
