Leadtrekker Lead Management System

We are excited to introduce a spirited and charismatic new Leadtrekker team-member.

Chanel de Beer joined us early in July and quickly learnt the ropes. With her go-getter attitude and outgoing personality, we’re sure she’ll more than fit the bill. Chanel shared some valuable personal insights so that our clients might get better acquainted with her:

Where did you grow up?

I was born in Pretoria North and I grew up in Montana Park. I went to Laerskool Stephanus Roos and Hoërskool Montana.

What and where did you study?

Initially, I wanted to study English Literature but eventually I decided to study beauty therapy for two years instead. Thereafter, I was employed at an immigration company. Then I moved to Miami where I decided to finish my diploma in English Literature.

After I returned to South Africa, I began working in sales. I worked as a sales executive at a car dealership in Pretoria for three years.

Do you have any hobbies?

I have a few, actually. You can say I am a bit of a nerd as I really enjoy reading Classic Literature and Science Fiction. My favourite authors include Nicholas Sparks, Anne Rice and Charlotte Brontë. I also enjoy lanning and I go to the gym quite a lot.

What have you learnt working in sales?

I never knew that I am a people person. I always perceived myself as an introvert but working with people helped me discover my true personality. Now I might in fact be considered more of an extrovert – I have a passion for helping and interacting with people.

How do you value customer care?

I always put myself in the client’s position. If someone has a problem, I provide the solution that I would want to receive. In this line of work the clients truly do come first and this is why I prioritise finding them the right solutions. I also want the clients’ satisfaction to be sincere. If a client even considers using our product, I want the entire experience to be positive.

Why do you endorse Leadtrekker?

Leadtrekker’s convenience factor is exceptional and it has such potential to make any business prosper. I am excited to see how Leadtrekker can benefit companies and to watch them progress until they reach their full potential.

What is your motto? 

“Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” I think this is said often but I apply it to every aspect of my life. Put yourself in the other person’s shoes. And with reference to my work, I treat clients in the way that I would want to be treated if I were the client.

Chanel, may this new venture challenge and reward you as great ventures tend to do.
