From the Diary Of

Kristen Kristen O'Connell

I AM: 🔅 a people-focused entrepreneur who built a business from scratch to help like-minded individuals 🔅a creative writer with an extensive vocabulary, grammatical competence, and high standards 🔅a visionary with a passion for helping ...others find their calling and achieve their full potential 🔅 a mother of two (It's important that my kids know no limit and I show them the right example) 🔅 someone who loves to travel (I’ve been to over 20 countries, but I easily want to visit 20 more!) I HAVE EXPERIENCE IN: 🔅 customer-focused roles (retail sales, customer service, hospitality, banking) 🔅 restaurant management (scheduling, delegating, supply ordering, decision making) 🔅 field sales (promotional events, trade shows, door-to-door and business-to-business) 🔅 sales team leadership and sales management (sales teams of up to 15 people) 🔅 recruitment (in-house recruitment, recruitment advertising, interviewing, training) I AM A GLOBAL AUTHORITY ON: 🔅recruitment advertising 🔅media buying and negotiation 🔅client and customer relationship management (CRM) 🔅recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) 🔅team building and professional coaching ------------------------------------------------------------ In 2008 I was working with a Regional Sales Director as his primary in-house recruiter. Our combined efforts helped him build a national sales team and get promoted to Vice President within 6 months. We set our sites on global domination, and worked together to recruit and develop sales teams and help launch SME’s in the UK, Ireland, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Poland and the USA. This has given me a broad and fairly unique understanding of candidate behaviour, job board functionality, advertising costs, and cultural influences, across multiple cities, countries, and continents. I launched my own media and recruitment advertising company in 2014 as a result of this experience and the understanding that I could help other Sales Directors grow in a similar way.
