In 2006, Gaynor Oton accepted the position of Accounts and Payment Manager with Europe Emirates Consultancy. She's happy to announce that this year marks her 6-year anniversary with the company, and she has no plans to leave the company in the near future.
According to Gaynor Oton
, she took a bit of a risk in accepting this position, as it involved moving her focus from her native Gibraltar to a new business model in Dubai. At the time, many of her family members and friends thought she would return to her old work as soon as the possibility to do so presented itself.
"Apparently, many people do not adjust well to working with clients in another country like Dubai," she says. "Since I've always lived in Gibraltar, my family members and friends thought I'd be unable to make the switch to a new culture and a new way of living. While I was a little nervous about it myself, at first, I've truly enjoyed the changes I've been through in the last 6 years. While I sometimes miss working with people who live close to my home, I do love my new clients and the work I do for them."
In addition, Gaynor Oton
has enjoyed the responsibilities her new job provides. Through her work, she's been provided with a significant amount of information on an entirely new industry, and each day provides her with another opportunity to learn and build upon her already remarkable skill set.
"Prior to this opportunity, I had worked primarily with private investors," says Gaynor Oton
. "I had some international clients, of course, but I also helped individuals with their banking choices, and I helped new homeowners invest in the real estate market. Now I am working solely with international companies who want to open up branches in new countries. It's a completely different business model, and it's something I have really enjoyed. I still have quite a bit to learn, but I enjoy the work very much."
Gaynor Oton plans to outline the lessons she's picked up in this position in her new blog, www.gaynoroton.com
. This is not a task that's mandated by Gaynor Oton's employer. Instead, it's a project she's taking on in her spare time.
