When Clients Become Mentors

Posted by Nicolas Martin, Private Client Relations Advisor on Mar 6, 2019 3:41:51 PM

 

How lucky am I to meet with successful businessmen and entrepreneurs on a monthly basis? Have you ever received advice or picked the brain of a successful businessmen from outside your own country?

Well, I have. It was not in a situation where one would pay to attend a key note speaker surrounded by hundreds of other attendees. It was in his own home. Sitting on his couch, next to him. Sharing Arabic coffee, dates, and homemade sweets.

Arriving in Saudi Arabia as an Advisor

Posted by Nicolas Martin, Private Client Relations Advisor on Feb 7, 2019 4:26:52 PM

 

It's about 3PM on a Thursday and it’s time to head to the airport. My flight is only at 6:30PM but we all know what the construction/traffic situation is like in Montreal these days, especially in the winter. I am feeling good and mostly excited. I am focused and constantly going over my checklist to make sure I did not forget anything.

After the usual check-in and baggage drop process, I can enjoy a nice drink at the airport, still double checking everything in my bag, even though it does not really make a difference at this point if I forget something.

De simples aventures

Posted by Jordan Lanoue, Conseiller Relations Clientèle Privée on Nov 16, 2018 11:32:31 AM

 

Au cours de mes nombreux voyages, rencontres et péripéties, je suis toujours surpris de constater l’impact que certains de nos gestes peuvent avoir sur les autres. 

Je l’ai constaté récemment en invitant un de mes bons amis du Mali, devenu aujourd’hui Canadien grâce au Programme Immigrant Investisseur du Québec, à un match de hockey de nos glorieux Canadiens de Montréal au centre Bell.

Handling New Responsibilities

Posted by Alicia Renaud, Digital Marketing Specialist on Sep 28, 2018 2:31:52 PM

 

Have you ever been in a situation where circumstances changed, and all of a sudden you had a multitude of new responsibilities and didn't know how to handle it? This can happen to anyone in any setting - professional or personal - and I am for sure right smack in the middle of it professionally. 

At the beginning of August, I was told I would be gaining much more responsibility at work. Not only would I be working directly with TIMC's president to run the marketing department, but I would have much, much more work that I had previously had throughout my time at TIMC. I am not ashamed to say I was a little nervous, but mostly excited.

Going from a one page job description to a four page job description is definitely intimidating. Here I will discuss how to handle new responsibilities and all the opportunities for learning that come with them.

Deux mois chez TIMC

Posted by Maxime Payette, Conseiller Relations Clientèle Privée on Aug 9, 2018 10:35:53 AM

L'équipe de ventes et moi (2ième personne à droite) à Antigua-et-Barbuda avec notre partenaire de Nonsuch Bay

Si je peux résumer mes deux premiers mois chez TIMC en quelques mots, ce serait « Work hard, play hard ».

Pour apprécier le poste de Conseiller Relations Clientèle Privée, il faut être prêt à mettre du temps les soirs et les weekends, vouloir faire partie d’une équipe soudée et avoir l’ambition de se dépasser et de sortir de sa zone de confort tous les matins.

Presqu'un retour à l'école

Lors des premiers mois, c’est littéralement un retour à l’école. Il y a beaucoup de matière à retenir et à connaître sur le bout de ses doigts.

A Week In Antigua: Workshop 2018

Posted by Alicia Renaud, Digital Marketing Specialist on Aug 3, 2018 3:26:57 PM

The team at the beach after our tour of the Island

In the first week of June 2018, the entire company hopped on a plane and met up in Antigua and Barbuda, for our annual company workshop. This year’s location was selected by our Workshop Committee and President. They chose Antigua and Barbuda so that we could get to know the partners we work with there, visit the properties we sell, and get to know this beautiful country. It’s always easier to promote something you have seen yourself in person, so what other choice did they have? Antigua and Barbuda was the perfect place for us to work, relax, and get some good quality team bonding (and tanning) in.

Here I will give you a recount of our trip, people we met, things we ate, places we visited and beaches we swam at.

Getting Past That Afternoon Slump

Posted by Alicia Renaud, Digital Marketing Specialist on Jul 23, 2018 5:00:01 PM

The team at Rutherford Park during Lunch

Everyone is familiar with the "Afternoon Slump". 

You come into the office full of energy in the morning, get a little tired but then break to have lunch, and then around 3PM, you're exauhsted, unmotivated, miserable, and snacky.

We are happy to say that (as we know lots of research has shown and are not claiming this discovery is our own) we have found the cure for the afternoon slump. Can you guess what it is?

Histoire amusante de Jordan

Posted by Alicia Renaud, Digital Marketing Specialist on Jun 22, 2018 11:32:29 AM

                    Jordan devant les pyramides de Gizeh pendant l'un de ses voyages en Égypte!

Durant leurs voyages d'affaires, nos Conseillers vivent des expériences incroyables et très différentes de leur vie au Canada. 

Travailler de l'autre côté du monde apporte aussi des changements dans la manière dont on fait des affaires. Nos Conseillers ont beaucoup appris pendant leurs séjours à l'extérieur du pays.

Voici une vidéo de Jordan dans laquelle il raconte la première fois qu'il a mangé avec ses mains.
