Ezetop isthe leading and fastest growing cor-poration in mobile phone rechargeand they work alongside with Digi-cel, Lime, T-Mobile as well as 220 diverse operatorsthroughout the world.Dianne Millan is the Business Development Man-ager for Ezetop Canada and in her role she is re-sponsible for managing large corporate accountsand working closely with distributors in fortunefive hundred companies including Canada Post andMoneyGram. Being an action-oriented and resultsfocused individual has served Millan quite well in allof her distinguished professional endeavours.When Millan migrated to Canada from Trinidadand Tobago at the age of 17, she immediately beganto better herself through education. Recognizingthat it is essential for expansion and empowerment,Millan completed her post secondary studies in Tele-communications and Networking. Shortly after,Millan became employed by AT&T and then movedher way up the corporate ladder to Sprint Canadaand Rogers where she spent 12 years making highlylucrative contributions towards organizational goals.Millan always possessed an innate curiosity mostabout the way information is transmitted electroni-cally. Being a consumer wasn’t enough for Millian;it was necessary to know and become extremely fa-miliarized with the way communication is created.“I needed to know how it works and how does theworld communicate. It’s not just a telephone call;there are so many aspects to a phone call and whattakes place and so I wanted to learn all of that.” saidthe adept sales professional with profuse expertise inelectronic communications.The level of enthusiasm that Millan deposits in herwork has been a crucial in-strument in her outstand-ing career achievements.Millan has a proven trackrecord in excelling in ev-ery position as well assurpassing company tar-gets by significant mar-gins. “By always being the number onesales rep it has given me more passion tofind out more about data services work,internet services and anything to do in thecommunication sector.” explained the multi-ple sales award recipient for top industries suchas Rogers, AP Global and Eco Carrier Inc.Within the next few years Millan aspires to haveevery ethnic group become thoroughly conversantabout the services Ezetop has to offer to their con-sumers. “My long term goal is not only creating theawareness in Toronto but throughout Canada andalso having all retail stores carry our products. With-in the next year or two, Ezetop is going to be wellknown in Canada.” said Millan. In early spring allmajor chain convenient stores will be offering Ezetopservices and by the end of the year all retail storesin Canada will be offering top up services to theircustomers.Being a woman of Caribbean descent has been astruggle for Millan in the previous positions held inthe telecommunications industry. In spite of this, hersuccess in sales made her an incredible asset that hasleft an indelible mark with both her employers andcolleagues. “I knew what I was doing and I was con-fident in what I was doing and I fully understoodwhat the customer wants.” explained Millan.The telecommunications and networking industryhas taught Millan a lesson that was of great magni-tude which is to listen first and then speak. “Listen-ing is one of the biggest things in life that you coulddo in order to be a successful person and it is really

important in sales.” said Millan. The strains of thepast only served to propel Millan forward and whatwas considered a setback is now a plus point forMillan in her current managerial position with Eze-top Canada. “Ezetop was looking for someone likemyself with a Caribbean background and a telecom background” said Millan with great confidence.There are numerous advantages in choosing a ca-reer that you are passionate about and it is a key ele-ment in producing positive energy in both your pro-fessional and personal life. “If you find somethingthat you like to do then you will never work one day.My success in sales and development is because ofthe passion I have for what I’m doing. I’m not onlydoing what I want to do but what I love to do.” ex-plained Millan. Even though Millan’s professionis highly demanding and absorbs a lot of hours, ithas never been taxing on her physically or mentally.Millan’s enthusiasm for what she does has always fu-eled her productivity which then allows her to enjoythe results of her labour and it has attracted positivepeople into her life.
