A Ballinasloe woman who plays football for one of the country’s top GAA club teams was the big winner at the 6th Annual Irish Sales Champion Awards took place at the Guinness Storehouse on Thursday, 16th June. The awards celebrate the competitive spirit, ingenuity and tenacity of Irish sales personnel.
The Three Business team was represented by shortlisted candidates Natasha Beegan, Gavin Clancy, Patrick Curran and the ICT Team, of which Natasha is also a member. Natasha, an ICT Sales Consultant in the Business Directorate was Three’s big winner on the night, winning the ‘Rising Star Award’.
The prize for this was a wonderfully engraved piece of Dublin Crystal along with a six month one to one coaching and development course with Foresight Corporate Development, worth approx. €5,000. She was shortlisted for three awards in total.
Natasha is a former Roscommon and Mayo inter-county footballer, who plays club football for Carnacon, just outside Castlebar, Co. Mayo. She is originally from Ballinasloe, but resides in Castlebar.
Her background is originally in property where she attained an Honours degree in Property Valuations and Management in Limerick in 2004. She worked in that industry up until 2010 and is still a member of the Irish Society of Chartered Surveyors (SCSI ).
In early 2010 she began working in Telecommunications when she joined eir (formerly eircom ), where she spent five years working her way through three promotions up to the position of Business Solutions Manager. Natasha then joined the Three ICT Sales Team, and sacrificed her club football for one year in order to make headway in her new consultative role.
Her commitment to work means that she travels throughout the week to ensure that she supports her Dublin-based Telephone Account Managers (TAMs ), of which there are seven, while ensuring targets are achieved and exceeded.
