Meet The Clickers is back with episode 36 to take you into the last weekend of July with a bang!
In the hot-seat this week is another of our Sales team, James Angelsea and by the end of reading this, it’s pretty much guaranteed that you’ll be trying to hum whilst holding your nose!
James! How are we mate? Good to catch up as always. Could you tell us a bit about your Click journey so far? How did it come about?
Ey up Poddy, I’m fantastic thanks mate, happy to be in the hot-seat! I was working for another DMS company and fancied a change. I had heard a lot of good things about Click Dealer over the years, so thought I would get in touch, and as fate would have it, they were recruiting for my role at that time. After meeting with Lee Rawlinson (who is now my boss,) I was offered the job, and that was just over a year ago.
Great stuff. Could you now tell us about your current role within the business and how this has changed since you started?
When I started with Click, I was doing outbound field sales, which was a lot of time cold calling dealers, arranging meetings and going out to see them. My role has since changed, and I am now responsible for making sure our dealers are getting the best possible service, and ensuring they are utilising all of the great products which Click Dealer has to offer.
What are some small things that make your day better?
Seeing my two girls laugh and smile. Hearing my customers talk about how much they love Click Dealer. Oh and seeing people trip over… A bit wrong perhaps but always cracks me up!
What is the most ridiculous fact you know?
It’s impossible to hold your nose and hum… Mind = Blown!
If you were a dictator of a small island nation, what crazy dictator stuff would you do?
Crazy dictator stuff eh? OK I would ban walking and make people run at full speed everywhere, and I would not let anyone sleep, ever. I think things would get crazy pretty quickly!
What is the best gig/festival you have ever been to and why?
Foo Fighters and Red Hot Chilli peppers gigs stand out for me. Also I used to go to a dance festival in Wales called Wakestock when I was a teenager. Some very good times were had there.
If you were hosting a dinner party and could invite any three famous people, living or dead, who would you invite and why?
Bruce Lee, Richard Pryor, Scarlet Johannsen – interesting, funny, smoking hot.
If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?
You know what, I love food so much that this question disturbs me slightly. But if I absolutely had to, probably pizza.
What are some fun alternatives to war that countries could settle their differences with?
Rock Paper Scissors, Conkers, Staring Contests and Dance Offs… Yeah, Dance Offs I think!
What are you most looking forward to in the next 10 years?
Seeing my kids grow up and exciting new technology like hoverboards and so on. Oh and then the next series of Rick and Morty… Can’t wait for that!
Who has impressed you most with what they have accomplished and why?
Richard Branson, Steve Jobs, Bill Gates and our very own Gerry Moxham. The concept of a person creating an empire out of nothing but their own imagination and self-belief is totally fascinating to me. I am in awe of anyone who has that level of drive.
Lastly, what do you love most about working at Click?
Easy! The bosses. I have worked for a lot of companies over the years in all sorts of different jobs, and I can honestly say I have never worked for people as decent as Lee and the Directors. The rest of The Clickers are okay too I suppose!
Stunning stuff James and thanks so much for taking the time to answer my questions. I’m off to try and hum a few Boyzone classics whilst holding my nose now… Until next time folks!
I hope you all enjoyed the latest instalment of our series, the next addition will be out this time next week but if that’s too long to wait, please click here to check out our other episodes.
