Coffee time with our Sales Manager, Mollie

We managed to grab 5 minutes with Mollie our Sales Manager, whilst she was back from the bright lights of London, and paying our Isle of Wight office a visit.

Mollie how did you start working for The Meeting Pod Co?

I initially did a few days here and there whilst working for another business. Then as the business started to grow, and I saw the journey Pod was about to embark on, I started to push for a full-time role. I knew this was something I wanted to be a part, and eventually, I was offered a job. I started as a sales support assistant, and things went from there.

How did you get to where you are now?

In the beginning I was helping Lacey, our Head of Business Development in any additional sales support she needed. As I got more settled into the business, I started attending meetings, and interacting with clients. That’s when I knew I wanted to one day be leading those meetings myself. I set about absorbing as many skills from Lacey and Mike, our MD, as I could, and I think its safe to say it paid off… look where I am now!

What is the best thing about working for The Meeting Pod Co?

Working for Pod is amazing, as every day can be different! Being a start-up, everyone must roll up their sleeves and get stuck in. I’ve done my fair share of installations, working until 4am and chasing the last ferry back to the Isle of Wight. Then on the other hand, I’ve had the pleasure of visiting lovely destinations such as Milan and Paris.

What is your favourite part of your role?

Easy- the exhibitions. I love being on the floor, meeting and talking to new people, and interacting with existing clients. It makes the stressful times worth it when you see people’s initial reactions to the products. That’s when you know you’re doing something right.

3 random questions:

Go to film? Has to be Bridesmaids. No matter what mood I’m in, it never fails to get a laugh out of me

Favourite snack? Anything from Gails

Top holiday destination? Any skiing destination, I’m a sucker for the slopes (and après ski)
