As we draw closer to the highly anticipated Connect Nigeria eBusiness fair, let’s take a closer look at our speakers. Understanding who they are, and where they come from, is a great way to reaffirm your confidence that they can help you improve your business. It gives you a common ground on which to relate to them. No matter the phase of your business, there is someone, who has dealt with similar challenges that you have, even though, they are in another kind of business.
So, let’s kick off this profiling with our first panellist, Mabel George.
Mabel George is the Vice President in charge of Business Development at Sigma Pensions Ltd. Sigma Pension is one of the leading Pension Fund Administrators in Nigeria.
An Insurance graduate from the University of Lagos, with an MBA in Marketing, she recently concluded an Executive program from Colombia University (Colombia Business School) in New York.
Before she worked at Sigma, Mabel was the head of Strategy and Regional Management at PAL Pensions. Before that, she was with Intercontinental Bank Plc as a Relationship Manager, and as a Marketing Executive for Senforce Insurance Brokers. Giving her, a total of over 17 years’ experience in the banking and pensions industry.
She considers her most significant accomplishment as being able to develop and implement creative marketing strategies that will make an impact, support the company’s brand and drive sales. Her range of work experience has equipped her with skills in Business planning, strategy, development, and management. As well as Financial Analysis, Investments, Portfolio Management, Marketing, Customer service and Strategic planning.
In relationship management, she was able to foster an atmosphere of warmth and the right attitude among team members, who reported to her – besides managing the company’s clients – while delivering on the overall objectives of the organisations she has worked with. She has practical knowledge of effective customer-retention strategies.
She was able to turn a non-profitable division of one of the companies she worked with, into a top performing sector within that organization. She is excellent at maintaining and developing a company’s corporate image and reputation, and also project their brand using suitable public relations activities.
Mabel also has experience with recruiting, managing, training and motivating staff, who directly report to her, according to company procedures & policy. So, while she managed regions in the country like South-south and the East, she was also able to deliver a personal touch to the lives of those in her proximity. This is a valuable skill for anyone who wants to grow their business from micro to mega status and still keep their organisation’s unique signature.
Come and listen to her share these experiences at the Connect Nigeria Business Fair 2018.
