One month on: Our Agile Business Consultant (& Head Barista) gives his views
“It has been one month since I started working with Red Potato, although it feels as if it was longer than that – in a good way! As an Agile Business Consultant, I have been to different places meeting different and quite interesting individuals such as business consultants, owners and CEOs. This has given me more insight into Red Potato and what it is trying to achieve and I now participate more with designing service features, sales processes design and implementation. I feel that I am in a better position now to add value to the business and I am hoping to see increased sales for the business and increased value for the customers as a result of my work.
I have also been working on quite exciting projects such as developing a business expansion plan abroad for delivering Business Boot-camps and taking part in the lead team of a partnership of around 30 organisations bidding for a big project. Considering the latter – initially I have been invited to a meeting between the lead team members and while I was not sure what to expect, I made some suggestions which were greatly appreciated and put on the spotlight. More importantly, I have been taken on board to complete various project-related tasks in congruence with my suggestions, which I also enjoy doing, resulting in a seamlessly increasing involvement with the project. This has exceeded my expectations as I was not expecting to have much impact or say whatsoever being so new to Red Potato and its field of work.
I am worried about how my efforts will develop, but I am also committed to achieve results and I know I can rely on Red Potato’s support to get me to where I want to be.”
