Speaker: Trevor Barritt, Solutions Consultant
How did you find your way to your current role at SymphonyAI Sensa?
Trevor Barritt: Hi, my name is Trevor. I'm the subject matter expert for pre sales for anti money laundering and trade surveillance. How did I find my way to my cart role today as the, well, I wasn't terribly happy in my role at my last employer. Uh, I became aware of this role about nine months ago. I like the look of what I saw, both in terms of the people I spoke to, what other people have told me about the company, looking at the company's website and so on. And It was a fairly easy decision to make back in, I think about October time to last year to come on board, served a couple of months gardening, leave my former employer and joined on 10 January 2022.
Could you share a few details about the favorite part of your role and the team at SymphonyAI Sensa?
Trevor Barritt: so what's the favorite part for me of my role? Well, there's nothing like working in a great team and having success in projects. My role basically is to do whatever I can within the bounds of good practice and the law to win deals for, that's the best feeling and it's a great feeling when everyone has collaborated together and got to win, it's not just winning deals, its other projects that go well and you know, that you have contributed to that, and also you've relied on other members of your team to do what they need to do within their capabilities to achieve results. You know, this may sound a bit contrived, but I was never any good at sports and I always envied the those that participate in the team and one matches and the feeling that might have been. And I get that from working in the team that I'm in, you know, in a sports team, the goalkeeper doesn't usually try to score goals, happens very occasionally, but not that often, you know, that's the that's the job of the forwards, the midfield, feed the forwards and so on and so forth. And, you know, in our team, everybody knows what their role is in working together to achieve the best results. Um I love the variety of my role. I can be at one time talking to clients, another time, working on research into regulations, updating the demo, working on a document and a whole host of other things that go to having a successful deal. I very much like the fact that everybody understands their role and everybody knows where they fit in in terms of how they contribute to the success. And I find that there's a great deal of collaboration at A. S. D. Everybody helps everybody else. When you get into a situation where you're dealing with something that isn't necessarily within your sweet spot of understanding or experience, people understand that and everybody helps out and plays their part in ensuring that the best results are achieved.
What stands out to you about the culture at SymphonyAI Sensa?
Trevor Barritt: So what for me stands out about the culture of symphony, I censor well, first of all we have integrity, I've never been asked to do anything that is remotely underhand or bad practice and I never expect to that to occur either. I trust the senior management team to ask me to do things which arm in accordance with what I know to be to be the proper way of doing things. I love the open and honest attitude that people have. I can say what I feel, other people can say what they really feel to me and I really feel that everything that I'm involved with my opinions are listened to and so other people's opinions, they're not always implemented. Of course, that can't be the case because we can't always implement everybody's everybody's views. But when something is discussed, when a decision is to be reached, then those people who have a contribution to make to that are listened to and their opinions and views are taken into account and that goes right from from the top. You know, I and I think anybody symphony ai sensor, you can talk to the leadership team uh ceo anybody irrespective of the level at which they operate. I know that they're going to have a decent hearing and be treated be treated with respect. Again, as I said before, everybody understands what they're doing. Um it's a very go ahead attitude that we have. We don't get bogged down in procedures and policies that aren't necessary. It's always says they have some procedures and policies of course, but we don't act as a slave to them. They're there to assist but not to rule unnecessarily. And I've been involved even in the six months that I've been here in a number of projects where we've been considering going into new markets, doing new things, making changes to the to the product. Um And again that that's the culture of the firm that if a client or prospect needs something, then we will do everything that we can to ensure that we that we meet those needs. It's very much a client needs and requirements lead culture and we listen to our clients, make sure that we understand what they need and then figure out how we're actually going to do it.
