Just a quick update to my work section:
Since August 2013, I’ve relocated to UK with family.
Under is the quick professional back-ground.
Currently working in an Engineering Consulting Company called Altran. There I’m Business Manager in the PLM Division of Bristol.
In August 2013, I finished working in Italy as a Business Development Manager for Filemaker which is a 100% subsidiary of a very large multi-national company – the one that changed mobile phones forever… it’s got an apple in the logo….
Yes, you’re right, I was working for Apple Inc.
So, what’s it like working as a Business Development Manager, what does it mean at the end of the day?
I think it’s the type of job that most people would enjoy, it allows me to be creative, it has flexible working hours, the ‘office’ can be at home or on the move, I might be in Italy or elsewhere in Europe and no two days are the same.
Sometimes I will be spending a day in meetings with customers or developers, or perhaps planning and setting up actions or delivering a presentation to potential clients, it’s always different.
I also spend a lot of time on the phone with a wide range of people, some need my help understanding what the Filemaker technology does, others might want to follow up from a meeting.
One of the very best things about my job though is that Filemaker’s products are great, and like all Apple products they set new standards for an excellent user experience in the DataBase world.
The Filemaker platform is now the de-facto cutting edge technology choice for Data in Mobility. In simple words if Data and Devices – iPad, iPhone – are your thing, then FileMaker Platform is your best choice.
To sum it up, the Business Development Manager job is a mix of quite different responsibilities, from Sales and Marketing, to PR, Press and Finance! Because it’s such a wide ranging role it demands a varied mix of competencies, including great IT, communication and interpersonal skills.
