Just another day at the job

You start your morning with a nice cup of coffee and open your mail to have glance at the daily sales report and process the new emails you’ve received from the Hong Kong team.  9:30 am, it’s time for your Teams meeting: the weekly sprint review with all your team members. You will discuss the latest status of running projects and opportunities. The action points for next week are discussed and the meeting is finished.  
In the afternoon you are visiting a lead that you have met during the fair last week. The last preparations to the sales presentation are done and you jump in the car to drive to your meeting. After a interesting talk with the potential customer , you write a short note to debrief the team. A nice new opportunity to add to the list, and to discuss with GP tomorrow morning during the monthly business review.  Another day gone, it’s time to close the laptop and enjoy the evening.
