Manager Spotlight offers a small insight into the heads of incredible managers. This week in the spotlight is Haja Fanta!
How long have you worked in Management?
I started about seven months ago, so I’m very new to the job.
Who do you manage now?
Where did you find your first client and what inspired you to take them on?
We went to the same uni but didn’t know each other at the same time. We then happened to end up in the same creative collective SXWKS and got to know each other from there.
I was already a Lex Amor Stan, so it was a pretty easy decision to make. Lex is just great; as a person and at what she does. The combination of her work ethic, her integrity and how she uses her talents to fulfil her purpose inspires me. Our working together is spiritual alignment.
What’s a good/bad day at work look like for you?
A good day is getting through the admin side of things like emails and calls, and something fruitful comes out of it. Also having the penny drop/learning something new is also a sign of a very good working day.
So far a bad day is uploading everything to a streaming site and the page refreshing – so I guess it’s not so bad at all so far.
What has been the highlight of your management career to date?
The highlight of my career thus far has been seeing Government Tropicana go out into the world. From a spectator’s perspective, it’s beautiful to see your friend share their talents with the world.
What do you think are the big challenges for a manager in 2020?
Navigating the pause of live music, finding new ways to generate income, and anticipating the changes to come.
What music are you currently listening to?
Lex Amor, Pa Salieu, emil, WizKid, Finn Foxell, Amaarae list goes on…
