October 24th, 2016 • Kissuகிசு
Name: Abdul Khalid
Nickname: Singer, Kaali Muthu, Jabdul (In Abdul’s words, every name can have ‘J’ prefixed to them)
How do you make KiSSFLOW great?
I am part of the Technical Product Specialist team and our focus is to drive sales for KiSSFLOW and provide customer support. As a sales team lead, I try my best to give KiSSFLOW customers an excellent customer service experience.
What is great about your hometown?
Chennai has such freedom, such culture, and a great stretch of beaches that you can’t find anywhere else. There’s a saying in Tamil that goes, “Even if you’re in heaven, you would still like to come back home.” That’s how I feel about my connection with Chennai.
Who is your favorite comic book character?
Archie. I’m sure everyone in India who spent their teenage years reading comics will say the same.
What do you consider is your signature work with KiSSFLOW?
I recently closed a six-figure deal with a big client for KiSSFLOW. That’s something I’m proud of.
Who is the person you admire the most?
My elder sister. You can say I’m her carbon copy, especially when it comes to work. She’s extremely hardworking, and I have learned a lot from her. She won’t hesitate to take work calls even in the wee hours; that’s the kind of commitment she has.
What are you reading right now?
I’m rereading Dan Brown’s Inferno. I’m planning watch the movie too.
From the KiSSFLOW Team:
What makes Abdul wonderfully weird?
He gets angry if you chew or slurp loudly next to him. Also, he doesn’t call sweat, sweat; for him, it’s always scent.
What we love about Abdul…
He never lets his team down. He places utmost trust in his team and doesn’t butt into their work. That’s his way of getting the results he wants. If there’s a newcomer in the team, he ensures they are at ease and have all the knowledge they need.
Personally, he is a very sweet guy with a sharp wit.
He doesn’t know how to write Tamil, but he claims he does. He is a terrible singer, but he will voluntarily break into a song whenever an opportunity presents itself.
He knows how to convince people, both in his professional and in his personal life. Also, he can go without sleep for days; he just needs food, friends, or interesting TV series to keep him company.
