Our CEO for the Day initiative, SimplyLead, is live, operational and in full swing. After the hugely successful first CEO for the Day, we were keen for our next CEO to come onboard to the programme and were happy to welcome Palli Kheni, a King’s College London BSc Biochemistry Graduate last week into the team. Palli applied to the SimplyPayMe team to take part in the programme to explore, experience and get a better understanding of the FinTech world.
Here is what Palli had to say about her experience as CEO for the Day:
“Less than 5% of women are CEOs of FinTech companies. Thanks to SimplyPayMe’s ‘CEO for the Day programme’, I got the experience of something truly unique and empowering.
After having detailed and brief meetings with the individual teams, we arrived at my favourite part of the day – the team meeting. I had the opportunity to get the different operations together to problem-solve and brainstorm, which would eventually help run the business. The team meeting also included a fantastic idea by Kent. It taught me the importance of leadership and a CEO who can bring the team together yet individually solve problems for maximum efficiency. I would recommend this programme to anyone who wishes to explore an extremely knowledgeable and friendly work environment, deep dive into the FinTech industry, or even experience the life of a CEO. I will truly cherish all I learned through this remarkable programme”.
If like Palli, you wish to take part in this initiative and be a part of the programme, with the chance to become an actual CEO of a Fintech company and gain an insight to what it is like to sit at the top table of a start-up business, then keep watching our social media channels, LinkedIn page and website as we will be soon looking for the next few CEO of the Day candidates, where you will be able to throw your hat into the ring and apply!
