Pagabo is expanding once again! Julian Penna is our new business analyst. He's a Hull lad - even attending university in the city - and likes nothing more than a good book and a dollop of his favourite flavoured ice-cream. Let's meet him...
The Business Analyst is someone who identifies the business needs of the client and helps that become a reality in the finished product.
The My Pagabo App will make the procurement process easier, connecting clients to reliable suppliers and bringing more access and certainty on all sides. It will also bring the whole process into the 21st century.
I would say the essential skills are good communication, organisation and ability to think logically.
I would have to say the health club mogul and former BBC dragon, Duncan Bannatyne. He came from very little and became successful through hard work. He does a lot for charitable causes too so I don’t think anyone cannot admire someone like that.
My experience in law was invaluable. It has enabled me to process information quickly and pick out the most important points. It also gives me great time management skills, which has been a massive help in my work life.
The first job of the day has to be to make a nice cup of coffee followed by checking what the key tasks are for the day ahead.
I mainly read books relating to history or politics. I’m not reading anything of note at the moment but the last book I read that was the fantastic Stalin: A Biography by Robert Service - he was an interesting man, to say the least. Robert Service does a phenomenal job of bringing people to life through his writing.
Don’t cook as I do! Seriously, it's about reading recipes. Other people’s experiences and input is far more valuable to achieving the meal how you want it.
It would most likely be something simple like macaroni and meatballs with plenty of olives and salami. Not sure anyone else would enjoy it but I certainly would.
There are many great places to visit but my favourite has to be Pearson Park. Since 1969, my family have run a little ice-cream shop there, and I spent so much time at the place when I was growing up. I now love taking my son and having a few scoops on the house!
Welcome to the team, Julian.
