Personal Asssistant (April 2013 - Present)
I worked for this organisation from aproximately 2004 to May 2009. I cold called businesses to arrange Motivational Speaker presentations. I contacted clients to explain the many advantages of enrolling in further training with the organisation and enjoyed speaking to people and gaining their enthusiasm and trust. There was a lot of email marketing involved as well. I thoroughly enjoyed working for this exciting and innovative business however I am currently looking for more work and more hours.
Lady Gowrie Hobart
March 2012 - May 2012
I supervised small groups of children and managed their out of school hour care play time in a productive, inspiring and encouraging way. Their safety and wellbeing are my first priority and children have expressed a lot of enthusiasm about being involved in play activities either in their own groups while supervised or have me join in and develop activities based on their interests.
Tele-Sales and Marketing
Cooroy Mountain Spring Water
I would cold call businesses and arrange free water cooler trials. This was fun and I felt very confident and enjoyed speaking to business people. I had a very high success rate of having companies sign up as a long-term customer because I made sure the trial always went somewhere that it would be appreciated and acceptable.
I would cold call residential customers and close sales over the phone. I sold three night or weekly holiday packages. There were sales targets that had to be met in order to remain in the position. My sales were always consistent and I learnt a lot of positive ways of approaching customers and gaining their trust and confidence. This was a fun position. I really enjoyed the team environment as we encouraged eachother which inspired success.
