In addition to keeping you updated about all the great things that are going on at The Clubhouse, we thought we would turn the tables and put the focus on all the exciting things our fantastic members are achieving!
For our February ‘Member in the Spotlight’ feature we spoke to Shenaly Amin, UK Country Manager LeoVegas.
1. Tell us about your company.
LeoVegas is the innovation leader in mobile gaming entertainment — LeoVegas casino provides world-class entertainment and offers over 700 games on mobiles, tablets and computers. Our multi-award-winning platform offers a completely new standard for what you can and should expect from gaming on your mobile device. It is internationally recognised as a leader in mobile gaming and has won several prestigious industry awards, including EGR’s ‘Slot Operator of the Year 2015’, ‘Marketing Campaign of the Year’, ‘Innovation in Mobile and Tablet’, ‘Innovation in Casino’, ‘Affiliate Program of the Year’ and the International Gaming Award for ‘Casino Operator of the Year 2016’. EGR Power 50 List ranks LeoVegas as the most influential mobile gaming operator.
2. What has been your biggest success so far?
For me personally, launching LeoVegas Sports in the UK. It’s an incredibly saturated market out there and very hard to cut through. However, the launch of our sportsbook in May 2016 was a success and brand awareness continues to increase. For LeoVegas on the whole, I would say our biggest achievement to date is becoming a publicly listed company in March 2016, further strengthening our brand values and proposition within the market.
3. What project are you most excited about right now?
The upcoming launch of our new brand ambassador. All will be revealed soon on TV so keep an eye out on ITV, Comedy Central, Dave and many more.
4. How has being a member of The Clubhouse contributed to the success of your business?
The Clubhouse has been a great space to hold client meetings, interviews and internal business meetings without the hassle of arranging a place to meet. When you are working from home, like myself, it’s a little tricky to conduct business meetings without a central space. The Clubhouse has also helped to show our clients how serious we are about the growth and expansion of the business within the UK market. Where can members find you? Usually on the first floor hidden away in one of the booths.
Quick Fire Round:
Favourite place to go in London?
Museums, I love them all.
Who inspires you and why?
My colleagues. I have a very small team of three but we are as active as a team of 10. They inspire me every day with the way they handle situations. They are so knowledgeable and don’t give themselves enough credit.
Best bit of advice you’ve been given?
Take a step back and remember life is for living – best advice for someone like me who can never put the phone down or ignore emails. Good business can only be done if you’re in a good place yourself.
If you were on a desert island, what would you bring?
Sugar – a small dose keeps me going for days.
Which super power would you like to have?
Flight – so I can escape to the Maldives whenever I want.
What is the worst business ‘faux-pas’ you’ve committed?
Discussing business at meals. When you live and breathe the business it’s hard not to, but mealtimes are for eating and socialising, business will follow if you have a solid foundation with the client.
