A day in the life of… Quebec Strategy Coordinator
8.30 AM - Every second Monday of the month, I attend a meeting with Robert Dumas and the Quebec Leadership Team. At this meeting, each Regional Vice President from our main Business Units gives an update on what is happening in the market, which sales are in the pipeline and what our competitors are up to. I give an update on the progress of the Quebec Strategy and participate in the discussions with the leaders at the table.
10:30 AM - After the meeting, I check my e-mails to see if there are any urgent requests from other business partners. A marketing specialist needs me to provide numbers on the growth of our Wealth Sales in Quebec since 2010. I look through some reports and send her the numbers she needs. I’ve received the data I need to generate the Group Retirement Services (GRS) Quebec Sales activity report for the current month and start crunching some numbers.
Noon – I join a few of the other RLDP participants for lunch in the park in front of the building.
12:45 PM – I prep for my meeting at one. I join Sophie Ouellet, Regional Vice-President for Group Benefits in Quebec and one of her Account Executives in her office for a client meeting brief. Sophie will be meeting one of our strategic and key clients next week and needs to be aware of the service level satisfaction of the client and to be briefed on what to talk about during the meeting.
2:30 I grab a quick coffee with a colleague and then I have some time to finish the GRS report I started earlier and am able to send if before the end of the day.
4:00 PM I check the rest of the week’s agenda and plan out my tasks for the next few days. I print out some material for tomorrow morning’s meeting: I will be sitting down with the ambassadors for the United Way Montreal committee. As campaign Director this year, I will be leading the meeting and need to make sure I have everything ready.
