The nature of my job does not have routine as i assist staff to organize events that differs on a day to day. What i had to learn quickly was to be very flexible and multitask alot as well as be able to negotiate with stakeholders to get things done correctly and on time. I believe there is a room for improvement with management particilarly allowing me to use the latest tech that will ensure that events management is handle promptly and professionaly.

The work culture at Seda Marketing Department is good in a sense that we get the job done and where we are unable to support, we indicate well in advance or seek alternative solutions. The hardest part about my job is handling multiple events requests and excecuting certain tasks after hours but i have learned to embrace the nature of my job and adapt quickly then i began to love and enjoy it.


The most enjoyable part of my job is seeing a project to completion and getting positive feedback/post event report as well as interacting with new people daily. In a nutshell my job requires an energetic person who has excellent interpersonal skills and turns ideas into reality.
Pros
Project Management, Communication, Negotiating
Cons
Long hours, creative and traveling

Challenging and always learn new things.Engaging with different practitioners gives one an opportunity to learn more about their different experiences.

Being a parastatal is limiting management to express themselves on managerial expectise.


50% of staff are only working for themselves and not for the organisation meaning they have a don't care attitude and sometimes they are more concern on the targets and not quality.


The hardest part of my job is to convince people of new approach or initiatives.


Achieving and changing the way people see things.
Pros
Good learning environment
Cons
Silo mentality

Hectic and demanding. Enhanced my skill about entrepreneurship development. Working with diverse people needs strong leadership qualities. One need to mix both management and leadership skills to deal with the daily situation. Most employees are lazy to work and will allways try trics not to work or achieve on their targets. Dealing with difficult and untrustworthy employee is very difficult which need strong leadership. When more entrepreeurs growned their businesses intems of increase in assests, employment and turnover they toughed me possitively.

Leadership is not a position but action.
Pros
Positive feedback from some of the clients
Cons
Long and hard working hours
