Speakers: Hakeem Omotayo
Hakeem Omotayo: My name is Hakeem Omotayo and Anaplan For All prepared me by helping me understand how computer science skills can be used for business planning and forecasting. Whether that's for starting up my own company or helping improve a business that's already well underway.
What did you learn from your Anaplan mentor?
Hakeem Omotayo: My mentor taught me the importance of building connections, both in the business sense, personal sense. Fostering habits to stay in touch; understanding how to convey what each person brings to the table, what each person is looking for. And really help bring the next people forward.
What was your favorite part of your Anaplan For All experience?
Hakeem Omotayo: My absolute favorite part about the Anaplan For All experience was the connection between the members of the cohort. Both the other students and the TAs. that held us all together. Like the time and effort that everybody put in and the struggles getting through the material, were definitely something I'll never forget.
How does completing Anaplan training make you feel?
Hakeem Omotayo: I feel like I have a clear idea of where I want to go uh in terms of data science and in terms of my career in general, and I have a stronger feeling what I want to do and how I'm going to build a team to get to that point.
