Way Maker!! Miracle Worker!! Promise Keeper!! that is who are…. if my whole body were to be a mouth, it still won’t be enough to say thank you… from a health care assistant to Deputy Programme Manager!!!
I joined Tritek taster session May 30th 2020 when my 3rd child was just few weeks old. Yea you heard me right, just few weeks old baby. The oldest is 6 years…. I joined with an empty skull, inquisitive mind and above all with God!! After the taster session I felt yea this is it, I am at the right place having had a bad experience with another brand the previous year and was referred to tritek by a friend but being pregnant then I decided to wait till I put to bed. So back to my story.. I enrolled in June 2020, our project began in June 2020 Project Titan, before our project started, I married LMS videos, I watched and re-watched videos, I checked in on basecamp, I peeped into some completed projects, I was hungry and was constantly feeding myself with LMS!!I was actively involved in my project, I attended BA meeting even though I preferred the PM side of things.Then I made friends with my team members turn family , oh Ginika, my personal motivator God bless you.
Our project was still at the initiate stage and I felt the urge to start applying which I told Ginika, our deputy planner and she encouraged me to. Oh I applied and was rejected but she said its part of the process and I went back and worked on my application and made more applications, when I saw the role of Deputy Programme Manager, I applied without giving it a thought! Lo and behold I was invited for an interview. I was shocked and wasn’t ready. I quickly called mama Hawk and said to her, my project is now at the define stage and I have applied for a job …. she quickly said send me the details and I did and she quickly assigned me a mentor just like that..let’s pause… Before I got a mentor I called my PM, heaven sent PM of project titan and told him that I don’t think I was ready for this and he laughed and said this is nothing and he will put me through… (unpause) I got a Mentor from Heaven called Remi, I called him immediately I got his contact from mama Hawk, he told me what videos I should watch again on LMS and he fixed a date for both of us to meet and practice the interview. Fast forward to that day I didn’t turn up, I refused to call him and I made up my mind to withdraw the application. Remi called me later that day and I told him my mind and he said I wasn’t going anywhere, I must attend the interview and I must practice with him, no running away from it!!
He refixed the practice to a day before the interview and during the mock he interview he interrupted me and said I wasn’t sounding confident, he did then recorded himself and sent to me to listen to.. Now pause again… Back to my PM Sola, I was praying he shouldn’t call me since I wanted to withdraw the application but wosiah!! He called and even booked zoom meeting for me that night prior to the interview day! Oh he talked, he drilled, he advised, he motivated and wished me well that night, we rounded up at midnight. Ginika on the other hand sent me handbook that held questions about planning to practice with..(now unpause) interview day came having been awake all night, practicing, breastfeeding and watching videos on LMS I went for the interview. During the interview I spoke from my heart, with passion, confidence and knowledge given that its just a one person needed for this role. Then came the post interview wait.. I see myself talking to myself in the room, saying to myself “oh Ann you should have elaborated further blabla”.. I was going mad, and then came Reni (PMO) calming me down and everything will be ok… Sola said its normal I should not worry, Remi said don’t worry just start giving thanks to HIM and behold I was offered the job!!
I, Ann,a health care assistant is now a Deputy Programme Manager!! Oh God!!! I was too shocked to accept the offer, I called mama Hawk and this lady was shouting more than I was,I had to pause to remember who got the offer, me or her … Just one week of the interview invite and these people turned family surrounded me as if it was their interview!! Heaven knows that Tritek is more than what it looks like, in Tritek you bond with people who want to see you succeed, its not a competition, its a genuine desire from your fellow team members to have each other’s back. Special Appreciation to My Project Titan Team, Sola, Feyi, Elizabeth my able lead, Reni, Ginika, Treasure, AJ, Sharon, Florence Christel, Abiodun, Iyore, Gloria,
