I have a strong developed feeling for the big picture without forgetting about the details.

A typical work day We work in a highly pressurized environment. Due to the nature of the transactions, every transaction has a deadline, hence we are always working against the clock. Co-workers Support within the value chain is vital . Hence its imperative to ensure we maintain good working relationships within our organisation. What have you learnt That we can exceed the limitations if we persist in our beliefs. What you enjoy the most I enjoy interaction with clients and writing and structuring deals. Most challenging aspects Everyday theres a new challenge hence its hard to pin it down. I guess the work life balance is the biggest challenge.

Pros: That we get staff benefits , medical aid and bonuses
Cons: no growth within KZN
