My career in sales started from a young age of 18. Even though being one of the youngest sales brockers for a big insurance company in Bulgaria, I totally smashed all my targets. I came to London two years later and carried on with my sales career alongside studying. I started as a junior sales person and made my way to a manager after absolutely reaching all the targets within 6 months, where I built a great team, reaching all their sales goals.
Since then I have worked on a senior level for corporate and retail, managing teams of 100 people minimum and we have had huge successes in exceeding sales targets. My last position as an employee was for All Saints as a Sales and Training Manager, where we not only managed a team of 200 people and a million pounds turnover but we also reached 40% growth for 2014-2015 as a company. This was the year where a lot of the retails and sales struggled.
