Over 20 years ago, I saw the need to help individuals and businesses to identify opportunities and take positive steps to present themselves in a professional way. The world has changed over time with the explosion of online opportunities for businesses and individuals through the web. Digital Marketing, Social Media, Website Marketing have become the norm over relatively few years. People need to adapt to the changing environment so they can grab those opportunities and maximise the outcomes.
I found early on that people are good at running their business or being a star employee, but don’t necessarily have the skills to put that in writing, or ‘up in bright lights’ for others to see and then engage with them. Business owners in Toowoomba, Brisbane, the Gold Coast and any other location, enjoy doing the work that led them into business in the first place. Often, they need help to put in place the marketing and development systems, written resources and procedures so they can keep focused on what they do best.
Where it comes to careers, very few people are comfortable ‘talking up’ their skills and experience to present themselves in the best possible light. They often need help to present their skills and experience through engaging Resumes and Career Documents to maximise their employment prospects. It’s these things that motivate me and my team every day in our work with individuals and business leaders in Toowoomba and across Australia, who are looking for that edge to drive their businesses to the next level.
A bit about my story . . .
In addition to multiple qualifications across many disciplines, my history includes a variety of senior management roles in both the public and private sectors, including many years as a company director. My professional experience has been formed in government, the financial services industry, the training (VET) industry, the emergency services, HR (or talent acquisition as many people say today!), and most importantly in business development, growth and marketing work.
I have built the services offered by my team at Present Professionally around the important areas businesses and individuals need to get right, so they can be at the top of their game.
