Paramount People is our regular series of blogs that highlight the members of staff who work to deliver creative, effective office design projects for clients across the UK.
In this edition, we’re looking at a day in the life of our Business Development Manager, Paul Doherty.
What do you do at Paramount?
I am the Business Development Manager for South Wales.
My role entails interacting with new and existing clients to maintain and enhance relationships, creating new business opportunities for Paramount.
Talk us through a recent day: How did it start?
Most mornings start with a cup of coffee and a review of my to-do list.
I then sat with the design team to review the presentation for our meeting later that morning.
What projects did you work on?
We met with the client and presented our concept design.
Using a whiteboard and with printed images of the concept ideas, we discussed each element of the design whilst adding their feedback next to each one.
This helps the team to build up a clear picture of which direction the design should progress.
This collaborative and informal approach is a way to help us engage with our clients and they love getting involved.
What was the highlight of the day?
Seeing the design team work their magic in the presentation and the instant positive feedback we received from the client!
What’s been your proudest moment at Paramount?
Being able to introduce some old clients and contacts of mine to Paramount and having positive feedback from incorporating other interesting ways of networking and entertaining our guests.
Tell us something we might not know about you.
Before I entered the world of business development, I was a professional golfer based in Dubai and travelling the world.
I was fortunate enough to play in some high profile events such as the Dubai Desert Classic.
