About Babajide Akinyele:

With over 15 years of experience in diverse sectors, I bring a proven track record
of delivering exceptional customer care, driving sales growth, and fostering business
development.
Throughout my career, I have developed a reputation for providing outstanding customer
service and ensuring customer satisfaction. I have consistently exceeded sales targets by
employing effective communication, organization, and a diligent work ethic. My ability to
inspire customer confidence and foster strong relationships has contributed to successful
collaborations with both internal and external stakeholders.
I particularly enjoy speaking in the English Language, and this led me to my stint at an International TV station where I cast and edited news for more than a year. Whilst flying as a Cabin crew for over a decade with International airlines like Virgin Atlantic, Virgin Nigeria, and Denim Air, just to mention a few. I was saddled with the added responsibility of making announcements over the public address system to hundreds of passengers. Allow me to buttress that our primary duties on board the aircraft involved conversing with passengers and crew, young and/or old, from different nationalities, races, religions and tribes. I am excellent in communication as I had undergone a series of related training and had the perfect environment to practice daily. I scored A in my high school final exams and due to my affinity for Mathematics, I coach Secondary school students at my leisure. This has further helped to strengthen my prowess during Duty free sales onboard, Customer Account Management, just to mention a few.  

In earlier years, I worked as a Technical support staff for an Internet service provider. I responded to Clients' queries and inquiries via phone calls, emails, etc. My most recent experience was gained as a Key Account Manager for a multinational organization, where I oversaw the Chartered flights arm of business accomplishing the same feat with very high-profile personalities, groups and companies. 

In conclusion, my Sales proficiency, excellent command of the English language, Customer service experience and friendly disposition, makes me a perfect fit for a Sales position, Key Account Management role and/or Customer service staff, a worthy addition to any company's intellectual capital and in turn, I will enrich the fundamental and most important factor, an organization's bottom line.
