About Arnold

 
 

hi team…

I want to take this opportunity, once again to thank everyone on the team for a warm welcome, including our Doctors. It gives me great pleasure and honor as your new Sales & Business Development Ambassador. A brief description of my role would be to take the Inspired by Rossland Optical Brand built by your hard work and Dana’s Leadership out there to the community, attend networking events, explore opportunities to bring in the extra footfall/clients (keep you busy) and also support the team with selling on the floor and strategies to improve our sales in-store. I bring with me 3 years of experience in the Eyewear Industry and a bizarre passion for creating a great experience (especially a big smile) for our customers. I have completed 3 awesome weeks with you guys and I am super motivated with the activities in and outside the store. So the first two weeks I spent training in both locations. I attended the Java Jolt meeting at 8.30am (Organized biweekly on Friday’s) at the Food & Art Café, where you meet with professionals in the community who want to connect and pump themselves up with some enthusiasm, motivation and good food for thought before they start their day. This is where I got to know that Whitby Chambers of Commerce is having a Food Drive and after taking Lexy & Lindsay’s help, we setup two food donation boxes at both locations. Not only that but with Lindsay’s help, we created a Food Drive Video for our social media platforms. This was recognized at the Whitby Chambers of Commerce New Office opening Block party and one of the members even created this short video with me in it on LinkedIn addressing our initiative to support the charity. It definitely was a great experience and awareness of our brand in the community with Dana’s direction and support. I have also enrolled with the BNI High Achievers Chapter – Ajax in August (Every Tuesday’s). For those who don’t know, BNI is a professional referral group where we network & generate business for every member. Which means it includes one Professional/business only from every field and we work towards generating serious referrals for each other. Other than my events, I have created a new Retail Partnership Program with the help of Lindsey & Dana, wherein I will look to partner with Local Businesses & Big Brands for cross clientele referrals and Employee Appreciation Opportunity. If they sign-up with us all their employees and eligible clients will get an exclusive promotion or discount. This will give us an opportunity to cross pollinate clients, build rapport with our community business partners and also grow our brand. This is all from me and I will often bump into you guys for help or support and also feel free to connect with me. Cheers to Team Rossland because I am inspired by your Vision!
