Who are you?

My name is Sandra Aponte, I was born in Columbia, am married and have three kids, worked for Ericsson during 14 years and is today training and demonstration manager at Edgeware. Since 2015 I live with my family in Florida and my personal motto is ”Carpe Diem”. I really live by making the very best of all moments and very day of my life. My family is the center of my world and they give me power to power others. I live by the conviction that ”life is lived in three days” – blink twice and its over…so make sure to make the best out of it!

What do you do at Edgeware?

I train customers on Edgewares products. On both our very own solutions but also the bigger picture of the future of IPTV. Its very important that our customers and partners get the very best out of our products. I often travel to customers and train them when they install our systems and also help our own staff in pre- and postsales. Since I now live in the US i primarily focus on Central America and the USA today.

As a trainer its important to inspire and motivate people in both small and large groups. I also believe in the importance of having fun at work since results tend to be much better when we have a good laugh, preferable often
