Business Development Specialist - Ceebeks Business Solutions for GOOD

International Women’s Day Spotlight on our Working Women – Shannae Hewett

What I love about being on the Ceebeks Team…

The main thing I love about being on the Ceebeks is the friendly and caring environment to work in.  We all enjoy our work so it is a special place to be.

In my view, what’s different about Ceebeks compared with other firms is……

Ceebeks is a much smaller firm which means we know our clients a lot more personally and they aren’t just number to us.  Our clients can be confident in knowing that we are available all the time not just when things go wrong. We are here to help people  and make their lives a bit easier and less stressful.

What I love about my role is?

Working in the front reception has been great as I get to greet new and existing customers as they walk in through the door.  I love being able to set the tone for their visit.

What I love about being on the Ceebeks Team…
The feeling of working with a small close-knit group – this means we can offer our customers a high level of personalised service.
In my view, what’s different about Ceebeks compared with other firms is…

We know our customers intimately. We keep on top of our customers non-work related activities too, so we know when their footy team wins or when their children start school etc. Our customers know we care, not just about their business but about their personal lives and families too!

What I love about my role is…
Solving problems and offering solutions. I love the great feeling you get when you can assist customers with fixing a problem, or supplying an idea, that helps them streamline their life and achieve a goal.
Something most people don’t know about me is…..

I am passionate about Blood Donation! It is one service we can all do – and it costs us nothing but time. However each donation can save up to 3 lives. I’ve made over 50 donations to date!

 

Lismore’s Ecostainable Wins Australian Small Business Champion

Ecostainable’s founder, Karen Saunders, put the small South West town of Lismore on the map Saturday night when she was awarded Champion Environmental Business at the Australian Small Business Champion Gala Dinner and Awards Ceremony in Sydney.

Recognised as the ‘Oscars’ for small business, the Australian Small Business Champion Awards is the only national recognition program for Australian Small Business.

The unexpected win was ‘awesome recognition’ for Karen’s passion, dedication, commitment and hard work in building Ecostainable to where it was before COVID hit.

Thankfully, due to great customer support and an extensive and trusted range of products, COVID has only been a hiccup in Ecostainable’s growth.

Karen has had great plans for 2021, she is back doing her regular markets, working hard on maintaining Ecostainable’s excellent customer satisfaction, and expanding the services offered in our Lismore store.

Karen is also actively seeking her first casual employee, and if you or anyone you know is interested, please email your resume to orders@ecostainble.com.au.
