Drums roll, lights dim, curtains open, the spotlight turned on our star and everyone’s favourite, Adefisayo Enikanoselu. Adefisayo holds the managerial position of Operations and Strategy in Octamile. More importantly, she occupies an enormous space in the heart of everyone. This is born from the admiration for her consistency in serving the company and improving every employee’s life cycle.
We are glad to have found the perfect glue that keeps the organization together and functioning optimally.
We reached out to three Octamilers to describe Adefisayo with a few words. Here is how it went:

“Fisayo is sweet, fun and pleasant. She is caring, thoughtful, and a delight to have around.”
“Fisayo plays her role in the organization effectively. She always looks for ways to improve the present, ensuring the work environment suits every employee.

Q: How did you get started in the industry?
A: I was on a project with a client in the fintech industry. I got to do some research and found the tech space quite interesting; this piqued my interest in exploring the tech space. I came across Octamile and found what they do to be unique and Innovative. The Traditional Insurance space doesn’t have a history of satisfying its customers, and Insurtech is bringing technology to turn the tables and tides.
Q: What do you find interesting about the insurtech space?
A: What I find most interesting is that I can purchase my insurance, get my insurance certificate almost instantly and make claims in the comfort of my home, excluding the stressful back and forths with insurance agents.
Q: If you could tell your 13-year-old self one thing, what would it be?
A: I would tell myself not to be shy and make friends. Growing up, I was a shy kid, which limited me from doing many things.

A: Lupita Nyong’o. I love her energy, and I love her movies. She is absolutely talented and stunning.
Q: What do you like most about octamile?
A: The fact that everyone is easy to relate with, and there’s always room for opinion sharing. Also the dress-down culture, I don’t have to overthink what to wear.
Q: If you could have any superpower, what would it be and why?
A: Super mental/emotional strength. Sometimes I get overwhelmed with tasks, especially when they come unplanned. If I have super strength, I can achieve these tasks and have time to relax.
Q: What is the first thing you would buy if you won the lottery, and why?
A: A house. It will be nice not to have to bother about the house rent.
