Conor started as a Product Management intern in 2018, he has now worked his way up to leading our sales team and becoming our partner’s main point of contact.
Whilst his role is heavily customer focused, we thought it would be fun to ask some questions you wouldn’t find out in a typical business call with him, so you can truly get to know him.
What is your favourite game or sport to watch?
I watch a lot of tennis and thankfully it is on all year round. In the winter, I try and keep track of the Skiing FIS world cup races – it is something different to get me through the cold winter months.
What job did you want when you were younger?
When I was younger, I didn’t think the day would come where I actually had to choose a real job! I think I wanted to be a professional golfer for a while… I also wanted to know every detail about cars, maybe out of fascination for how the world worked. In fact, that would explain my mechanical engineering degree!
What is your favourite movie?
This is hard to answer as there are definitely some top contenders… (Shawshank, Forest Gump and anything Marvel) I recently watched the Lord of the Rings movies again and even 20 years on they are epic, so I am going to stick with those…
What qualities do you seek in an ideal teammate?
Honesty, respect, and integrity with a good sense of humour mixed in… I think they are important traits to create a strong team both in and out of work.
What is one of your greatest achievements?
I’ve pushed myself with cycling quite often, but for me the greatest achievement was last summer when with a group of friends, we cycled 500 miles of the North Coast of Scotland (it actually ended up being 600 miles.) We did 100 miles a day for 6 days in the typical British weather of wind, rain and fog, though we did see a TINY bit of sun.
It was a one of the toughest physical challenges I have ever taken on, however, it was an amazing trip with great memories and as a group we managed to raise £2,000 for men’s mental health charity – Calm.
If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Sunday roast beef – would anyone in the UK argue this? It has everything you need, and would you really get bored of a Sunday roast…?
And lastly, why do you enjoy working at DQ Global?
I like working at DQ because every day has a new challenge. I am very lucky that I get to speak to clients in Australia in the morning, Europe mid morning, and US in the afternoon. Through working here, I’ve also built up long lasting friendships with both our clients and our partners.
