Meet Tim Bullen, concentrating on being authentic and honest
Tim has happily settled in as the newest recruit in our Telesales and Business Development team. You’ll normally find him at his desk researching prospective new business for AM Services Group and making calls to create new leads. This is certainly a job that requires tenacity and resilience, and here he tells us a bit more about himself and what helps him get through his working day…
Can you describe the jobs you do at AMSG?
I work in Business Development, so the majority of my time is spent contacting businesses to discuss what we provide across all of our service divisions and how we can help them. It can be a busy environment here in the office sometimes, so I’m also there to lend a hand and help out if my colleagues are very busy, or short-handed.
What aspect of your role do you enjoy the most?
My job is about communication and I enjoy the interaction and talking to different people every day. You can always learn something new, but I enjoy getting into a conversation and learning more about the individuals as well their business. We are a people business, and it allows me to build a picture.
How do you motivate yourself?
It’s easier when you enjoy coming into work and I put myself in a great frame of mind. I also like to have a good, positive interaction with my colleagues, which keeps me positive throughout the day. I am self-motivated, but I always ensure at the end of the day I know exactly what I will doing the following day.
What is the most important thing you have learned in the last ten years?
The most important thing for me is to be authentic and honest with yourself and concentrate on the things you are really good at.
How do you define success and how do you measure it?
Success for me is twofold; I define success on being recognised for doing my job well and achieving my goals. I also evaluate success, not just on my own work, but by the success of the team.
Tell us one interesting fact about you that we might not know.
I did work in the Music Industry for 22 years. I worked primarily with songwriters and music publishers. It was a great pleasure and experience to work with so many wonderful and creative people. When I listen to music I still look to see who has written/produced/sung and performed on the track.
