Eden Musyoki offers an insight into each of his first four weeks as an Account Executive at Copper Consultancy.
In the short time I have been here, I have been exposed to all facets of day-to-day business life at Copper.
Week 1: Business development
In my first week I led the research element of an important new business tender document that Copper was going for. This involved designing and commissioning a perception audit of a high profile company in order to strengthen our written proposal and pitch.
Week 2: Drafting materials
In my second week I drafted a set of materials for a Nationally Significant Infrastructure Project (NSIP). These materials were designed to help communicate the need and potential benefits of the project in an accessible way to the local affected community.
Week 3: Client meetings
In my third week I attended a preliminary client meeting with a FTSE 250 housebuilding and urban regeneration company. Our client has a development project in a local area, and is using Copper’s expertise in stakeholder relations and community engagement.
Week 4: Business events
In my fourth week I helped manage a business event on behalf of a client seeking to build advocacy for a road improvement scheme in the South East. This event involved me facilitating discussions with local business owners to understand their concerns and views in regard to the scheme.
It’s been a real diverse range of work so far and I can’t wait to see what else I’ll be doing over the coming weeks.
