The opportunity to be able to make a difference in people’s lives, whether at work or at home, is what inspires Adel Oosthuizen, the newly appointed sales and marketing coordinator at Sat-Com.

The former business owner realised after 20 years of running a business that she wanted to add value to a company with her knowledge, expertise, experience and personality, and the career growth she has gained over the years.

She additionally has a military background and thus felt that Sat-Com would be a great environment to thrive in.

She admitted that adjusting to a new working environment is challenging, but due to the nature of Sat-Com as an employee-orientated company, it was easy for her to settle in.

“The harmonious atmosphere is a blessing to work in and it is a pleasure to get up in the morning to come to work,” she said.

Oosthuizen shared that with her past experience, knowledge and skills, as well as the on-the-job training she has received, it is easier to implement good time management.

Her duties include the management of certain projects within the department, providing assistance to the sales and marketing team to showcase and sell products to customers and assisting with all administration duties.

Oosthuizen starts her day off on a high note, with two cups of coffee, and tries to keep a balanced sleep schedule during the week, which helps her keep positive energy throughout the day.

She often gets up from her workstation to optimise blood circulation.

“I focus on being positive and creating positive energy towards my colleagues, and tackle challenges with a solution-driven mindset.”

“Opportunities are like buses - there’s always another one,” Oosthuizen said, explaining that she is inspired by the many failures that she has had in life.

She has developed this way of thinking from business mogul Richard Branson, who emphasised that one should not be embarrassed by their failures, but should learn from them and start again. “His positive, solution-driven mindset inspires me.”
