Atshaam said, ‘Winning the award was a surprise as I was unaware of my nomination. I felt honoured and privileged.’
‘I really enjoy working at Taylor Rose TTKW as there is a sense of togetherness, there are brilliant sets of individuals across the board. We are a big family; everyone supports one another and does their part irrespective of the roles within the firm.’
Atshaam’s key to success includes hard work, perseverance and a ‘can do’ attitude.
‘I have been with Taylor Rose TTKW for just over 2 years and the organisation has helped in various ways both personally and in my career. The firm has highlighted my people skills and enabled me the ability of becoming an efficient leader whilst transitioning roles. Key members in the business have helped me in identifying how strong I am as an individual and ensuring that I maintain a work and social life balance.’
‘A challenge that arises with my role is not being able to say no as I am always willing to help when I am needed as I get a satisfaction from helping others, whether that is a blessing or a curse. To deal with this I have started assessing my workload before considering offering help.’
‘My tip to my colleagues is; Invest in yourself – whether that is time, money or your dreams…as only then will you truly be happy!’
