Interview with Colin Behan
Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?
Having worked at a couple of places before finding myself at Oracle, I had worked with a variety of teams in multiple facets of this industry. Ultimately, it all came down to knowing what appeals to the users and customers. Understanding the importance of customer relationships, I eventually found myself gravitating to newer forms of CRM.
Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”?
Keep trying new things and push yourself out of your comfort zone. Learning never stops, and you learn from experience more than anything else. Do not miss out on opportunities and you’ll find yourself in bigger and better places.
None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story?
I think excelling in my field has been made possible by all my teachers at University who equipped me with all the skills and knowledge I could need and all my colleagues who I have worked with until now.
How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?
My current field of work has allowed me to interact with many people and business owners. I would like to believe that the help I have provided them with at Oracle, in any shape or form, has made them happy and grow. That is all the goodness I could think of bringing to the world, helping other people excel and succeed.
Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?
“The road to success comes through hard work, determination, and sacrifice.” -Dolzinski.
I have lived by this quote since I was always around people who were incredibly competitive, and I had to remind myself often that nothing in life will come easy. Hard work and grit are an ingredient to success; however you might choose to define it.
