They say time flies when you’re in the place you’re meant to be. I can’t believe that I was at Africa Broadcasting for over a year, It seems just like yesterday (as cliche as it may sound) that I got into the Marketing office!
Handling NTV and Spark TV, which are two very unique and powerful brands in the region was one of the key milestones in my life. I stumbled a number of times, fell, cried and cursed (myself and few other people) a couple of times but it was all worth it at the end of the day.
I still remember the day I got a phone call from Aggie (the Managing Director), the interview and then my day one! Walking into the office without anyone to handover to me! I was literally thrown in the deep end… But thanks to the always available support from Aggie and the whole team, I was able to get up to speed and find my footing.
Then there was Jackie who was the Brand Manager at the time, one of the most hard working individuals I have had the opportunity to work with. It is no surprise that she is now a brand custodian of one of the biggest hospitality brands in the region. I am positive she will kick a$$ and take names.
The whole of NTV and Spark TV team, all the way from the Sales team (I can’t even list names because it is the whole team – every one of them!), the production team, Newsroom (Maurice – Always available whenever I needed your support), Creative (Xena – I shall miss our fights. I absolutely admire your drive and passion) and technical… the digital team, Patra, Bonny and Emma, you guys are an awesome team, that is eager to learn and be the best. Like Steve Jobs said, Stay hungry. Stay foolish! – ABUL has one of the best minds and individuals this country has to offer.
The different clients, suppliers and partners that I worked with or interacted with, my apologies where I came short – one thing I can assure you is, I was trying my best
In short, this is to say, thank you all, and I am glad our paths crossed
Life is all about new challenges… As I take on my next challenge, I hope our paths shall cross again.
