How professionals work. Connie Chege-Bryant, Lenovo Apps Marketing Director

    The column “How Professionals Work” continues to acquaint readers of Megamind with the working habits of various specialists in the IT market.

    This time it cannot be said that we talked with a “regular” professional, primarily because the communication took place in English, and for the readers of Megamind we carefully translated all the answers to the questions.

    Connie is the head of marketing for Lenovo Apps, and her team is dedicated to providing a full support cycle for all Lenovo applications around the world, such as SHAREit, REACHit, WRITEit, Lenovo Companion, and Lenovo Settings. Unique editions of Lenovo Apps were provided to our editorial staff and, as it turned out, the number of users of these applications over the past year alone increased from 13 to 60 million people.

    Connie Chege-Bryant's parents are from Kenya, so she is fluent in not only English, but also Swahili. Connie received her higher education already in the USA, having received an MBA after a bachelor of science in business education.
