This time, our Look Who’s Talking series introduces Sebastian, OOm’s fun-loving and outgoing Senior Business Manager Team Lead. Check out what Seb is like outside the workplace through this quick interview!
Describe your role in OOm as a Team Lead, Senior Business Manager.
As a Senior Business Manager Team Lead, my primary responsibilities include overseeing and taking care of my team members. With that being said, it goes beyond a backseat role. It is also important for me to collaborate with my team to deliver exceptional service, especially to clients with complex requirements. When it comes to new members, I dedicate time training them on product knowledge and salesmanship to empower them with greater independence and excellent performance.
How do you feel about working in OOm for the 5th Year?
I am very happy with the progress I have made at OOm in my five years here. I joined the team as a Business Manager and am glad to be valued now as a team lead. Working at OOm has been nothing short of memorable and apart from gaining work experience and knowledge, I learnt a lot about life too! Probably the best part about sticking with a company for this long is being able to grow together with it. This opportunity for career advancement is not something every company provides, so I am extremely appreciative. Meeting people from all walks of life and continuous learning are among the many reasons why working here has been such a joy to me.
Tell me about one memorable incident / experience you had while working in OOm.
At OOm, the memorable experiences are constant. Lynn and William are my ride or die team members. Together, we work to achieve milestone after milestone as a team and every milestone is one I will never forget.
What do you do during your free time?
I am both an indoor and outdoor person so my hobbies include both. When I am out, I like to play cards, take a chill walk, indulge in good food and get my shopping therapy fix. When I am home, most of my time is spent watching either football, which has been a huge part of my life since I was 8 or 9, or bingeing on K-dramas. K-dramas these days have superb storylines and attractive casts. I highly recommend Beyond Evil!
What is the craziest thing you have ever done?
Unfortunately, this cannot be revealed. If it was made known publicly, I would probably require ‘reputation management services’ for myself!
What is your favourite game or sport to watch and play?
Football hands down! Like I said, it has been a big part of my life since I was 8 or 9. Though, there are other activities I enjoy too such as basketball. I do not play games as much now that I am getting older. But, if you have any games to introduce, do let me know! I am up for anything new and it will be a great opportunity for us to bond, play and have fun together!
