Work Anniversary ‘The Best Is Yet to Come’
Work anniversaries are always special. It is not just about the number of years you have been with a company, it is also about the memories you have made, and the goals you have achieved. Work anniversary is the occasion to take stock of your growth as a professional and as a person.
When you look back, you see the various milestones showing the trajectory of your life. June 2022 marks the work anniversaries of Lumens who have been with LumenSoft for a considerable chunk of time.
Here is a snippet of the tete-a-tete I had with them.
Usman Ali: Regional Marketing Manager
13 Years, and Still Going Strong! A few words about your journey:
From joining as a sales officer to becoming the regional sales manager, the journey has been a long and exciting one. I had worked at three organizations before I joined LumenSoft, but here I got the chance to explore my potential to the fullest.
LumenSoft is an important part of my life. When I look back I see how I have grown as a person and a professional. The promotion letters I received during this time accurately document my life story.
So Sales and Marketing are Your true calling?
You can say that. It is my passion, but I could never have discovered it without the mentorship of our CEO, Abdul Aziz. From him, I learned how to talk, how to observe, and how to deal with customers. I will remain forever grateful to him for believing in me. I still remember the first time he asked me to give a demo to an important customer. I was nervous, but his trust in me helped me overcome my inhibitions.
Your happiest memory so far?
There are many happy memories. But receiving a gift of a car from LumenSoft is one moment that stands out for me. It felt awesome to be acknowledged.
I have been dealing with retailers and wholesalers for a long stretch of time. And my customers’ business aspirations seemed to have rubbed off on me! I want to start my own business, and my business will be named after Candela. Like Candela Mart, Candela garments, etc.
I am also working on improving my professional skills to help me use emerging marketing technologies.
Any Personal Goal?
Yes. I want to lead a more healthy life and change my eating habits. I have gone off junk food and have already lost 12 kg. I Intend to keep up the momentum.
One Habit You Would Like to Break?
I tend to be lazy at times and think too much. I want to become more of a doer.
Good luck, Usman, with all your future endeavors and plans. And Happy Work Anniversary.
Faisal Nadeem: Graphic Designer & Web Master
Let’s hear your story:
It’s been six years. I remember the time I joined Lumensoft as a graphic designer. Before joining LumenSoft, I had been working in Php. But as LumenSoft migrated to WordPress, I shifted to WordPress as my go-to CRM. There has been no looking back. Adope photshop, illustrator, camtaisa… Thanks to LumenSoft I learned these tools and developed expertise in them.
Most Cherished memory
When I received the employee of the month award for the first time. The acknowledgment meant a lot to me. There are many other happy memories of various company recreational trips.
On the personal front my daughter, Irhaa, was born three years after I joined LumenSoft. So, my time at LumenSoft has brought personal and professional joyous moments.
Future Goals-Professional and Personal?
I am planning to learn a few more tools to upskill myself. My plans include learning animation and eCommerce website development.
On the personal front, I want to work on my spiritual dimension.
How have you grown as a person in the last six years?
Expanding my skill repertoire has given me more confidence. And also, becoming a father the second time around has been a sobering experience. I feel more responsible and calmer. I also feel that I have learned to deal with emotions maturely.
Best of Luck, Faisal. May all your dreams come true. And Happy Work Anniversary.
