Our Sophie Haig has been short listed for “Young Leader of the Future” at this year’s South Cheshire Chamber Business Awards

We are thrilled that Sophie has been shortlisted for Young Leader of the Future at this year’s South Cheshire Chamber Business Awards.  Sophie started as an apprentice at Eze Talk three years ago and now at the age of 20, manages a team of seven to help look after the customer experience.

Sophie started with Eze Talk three years ago as an apprentice in sales, where she was identified for her outstanding help and service to customers.  Sophie also had a great knowledge of all aspects of telecoms and was able to help customers find the perfect solution! She progressed quickly and as a Sales Support Manager, is now is responsible for managing our customer base of more than 13000 customers. Sophie also looks after all of our new customers ensuring a seamless transition from their previous provider.

On a personal note, through focus and hard work, Sophie was able to buy her own house at 18.  This is a real achievement when you consider that 1 in 3 millennials will never own their own home according to a recent Think Tank report.

As part of the energy comparison arm of the business, Eze Energy, Sophie also manages the energy team to provide customers savings on their energy bills, often up to £537 a year.

Part of the reason for her success, Sophie believes, is her investment in her personal development. She recently completed an NVQ in Sales and often uses the learning platform we have internally to keep herself up to date with this quickly changing industry.

The main reason, however, is her passion for helping customers and giving them the best experience to save money on their telecoms with zero hassle.  As Sophie said “There Is nothing better or more satisfying than a happy customer”.

Mike Walsh, Sales Director at Eze Talk added “We are immensely proud of our Sophie and all that she has achieved.  This award would add to us showing how much her hard work over the past three years firstly doesn’t go unnoticed but is also deeply appreciated. Whatever the outcome though, to be shortlisted is a fantastic achievement and we couldn’t be more proud.”
