VIX-Chevron-Up

April Yates

Business Development

My role at VIX is to acquire new clients and look after social media, but you can usually find my stealing peoples food. When I'm not in work you can find me chasing after my three young children at a park or playgroup. Drinking my body weight in tea (and wine) to survive.

Interview with April

What is your favourite food?

Anything Pan Asian. 🍜

What is your role in the team?

I’m here to ensure client satisfaction, so I am usually first point of contact for our clients and making sure they're happy. Also creating an environment for the team to deliver exceptional software.

What superpower would you like to have?

To get my kids to sleep through the night!

Who is your role model and why?

That would have to be Elon Musk. Although I do admire Steve jobs and how he's made tech cool, but Elon makes environmental issues cool.

Why wouldn’t you want to drive a Tesla or go on a rocket to space and know you’re gonna make it down ok. I like his approach to making living a sustainable life desirable and his confidence in his ability to do that.

Do you have any hidden talents?

My reaction times are getting pretty quick like I’m almost at spiderman level. But I don’t know if that’s a talent?

Oh and I could start up a conversation with a door.
