Brian Beacham: A day in the life of a Sales Executive
Brian Beacham, Sales Executive at Liberis shares what a 'day in the life' at Liberis looks like!Return to blog posts
What’s your name and what do you do at Liberis and where in the world do you work?
My name is Brian Beacham and I work in Initial Sales in the UK. I work mostly from home and my home is Glasgow, Scotland.
From the moment you wake up in the morning, what do you look forward to for the day ahead?
I look forward to hitting my targets and helping as many businesses as possible.
Describe a typical day for you in your role.
A typical day involves going through fresh applications for funding and contacting the customers to facilitate an application being submitted or to schedule a call back at a more convenient time. I also inform the previous day’s applicants of the outcome of their applications.
I don’t really think of myself as a salesperson that just makes outbound calls. I am someone who responds to businesses that need funding to grow and thrive. I get to know them and their needs, and then I work with them to help get the funds in the easiest way possible to meet those needs and help fulfil their dreams.
What do you love most about your job?
Helping businesses achieve their ambitions and getting them back on their feet after a very challenging 2+ years. Like all salespeople, I also like hitting targets and making commission 😉.
What advice would you give a colleague whose just joined your team?
Work hard, take plenty of notes as things change a lot and welcome aboard. We are a very welcoming bunch.
Are you office based, remote or hybrid? What are the pros and cons, if any?
Predominantly home-based with a monthly visit to London HQ. Pros are not commuting, and I am my own boss as I have the autonomy to achieve whatever I want to achieve. The cons are that I miss the office banter.
