Business development activities included prospecting, cold calling, networking with centers of influence, exhibiting at trade shows, and presenting to groups. Mackin is a great company with a very high level of customer satisfaction and loyalty. I enjoyed the fact that almost all of what I was doing was new business development, so when I was prospecting, I got to tell the Mackin story to people who were excited to hear about a company committed to providing better customer service. It was great to work with customers and prospects to understand what was important to them and be able to provide a better solution, customized to their specific needs. I also enjoyed the public speaking I did, presenting to numerous regional and district meetings. Most of all I enjoyed training customers how to use the web-based tools and digital resources we offered, and seeing their excitement about something that would help them succeed in their role, serving students and advancing education.
