Who are you and what do you do at incentivesmart?
I’m Matt, the Business Development Manager at incentivesmart. I studied a degree in golf (really!) at University, following this I tried my hand playing golf full time. Unfortunately, this didn’t work out as I’d dreamt. I then proceeded to spend many years working in the leisure industry.
Relatively new at incentivesmart I am currently focusing on identifying and creating new prospects. It has been great to draw up a customer journey to ensure of prospective clients get the best possible service from the start.
What have you worked on recently that you’re really proud of?
Starting a new job in a new industry, it has been amazing to learn and develop my skill set.
It has been great to be involved in designing new processes around both the sales and marketing approach at incentivesmart, this has been fantastic and enabled me to shape this moving forward.
Outside of work I am really proud of the hard work that has gone into our house. We have completely refurbished it inside and out and it is great and very rewarding to see such amazing results.
My daughter has also just recently learnt how to walk, which as a family we all put so much effort and encouragement in to. As a parent this makes you so proud (and emotional). Sometimes it is the small things that matter.
What’s the best thing about working for incentivesmart?
The solutions we provide to businesses to drive engagement and loyalty. This is something I really believe in and am passionate about. It is great to see the amazing results we have achieved through a number of different companies, helping them to achieve their objectives. This makes work very enjoyable and also very rewarding.
The people and working environment is also great. It is amazing to work with some positive, forward thing people.
Where do you see yourself in 5 year’s time?
I want to grow and develop with incentivesmart. I am very excited about what is to come at incentivesmart am thrilled to be part of what is a very exciting time for the company. The utopia would be a Head of Sales role at incentivesmart managing a team of sales reps.
Outside of work I am looking forward to seeing my kids grow and develop, and start school, which is a scary thought. I’d also like to be spending some more time back on the golf course.
What’s your favourite way to spend your weekend?
Ideally on the golf course, however having a 2-year-old and another one of the way that is now just a distant memory. Now it’s all about spending some quality time with the family and helping my daughter to grow and develop.
What’s your mantra?
Don’t take life too seriously, you’ll never get out alive.
