Turner’s Hotel – Sales and Marketing ‘Manager’.

 When Paul shared out the sheets of paper with different managerial roles….and I got that of the sales and marketing mangaer, I thought what a coincidence being that that was my job function (without the manager attached though-- just sales and marketing rep.) only a few weeks ago before coming to warwick..

 For me, meetings were one of those times where we congregate to waste the organisation’s precious time on irrelevant stuff…. This session gave me a whole different perspective on ways to participate in a meeting from setting the meetings agenda to identifying the purpose of the meeting and the necessity of the meeting. Also working with managers from the other department showed me how important team work is.

 Though I still have my doubts as to how constructive and unconstructive my contributions would be to the success of the meeting whose aim is to make a decision on a pressing issue affecting an organisation….i guess 45weeks studying MBE would help me develop that.


Understanding how to manage time is still a pressing issue cos I don’t seem to have gotten my act right. All hopes and plans of engaging in sports and other extracurricular activities seem elusive at the moment as I contend with academic work. …how sad *sigh* Having had a job where I had to put in 60hrs a week still afforded some room for other activities… but the challenge of giving 45hrs a week for brain work is pretty overwhelming. The question is HOW & WHEN will I challenge this status quo?


Ok…this is my first blog ever, and I am breaking out of my comfort zone. Its not that I havent learnt anything from my time here, but its rather the fear of deciding what is reflective or wat isnt…so I have decided to confront this fear and write my first blog….thumbs up!!!
