Gather round, it's campfire story time again. In my last campfire post I promised (threatened?) to provide you some more background on who we are. Allow me to give you some dot points as I don't want to bore you too much. Between this collection of family and friends behind the scenes, we have worked:
- For large corporates
- In government agencies
- As founders in successful (mostly technology) startups
- In law enforcement and security
- Importing goods to Australia from a number of other countries
- As large scale farming contractors
- Writing software
- In telecommunications, computer networking and television
- Providing customer support
- In tertiary education environments
ok, you get the idea so I wont go on. A few of us finished up our official schooling not long ago, others like myself have put a few years 'on the job learning' between us and the school yard.
We have travelled pretty extensively, both for business and pleasure. That includes most parts of Australia and a long list of other countries. (Yes, the frequent flyer points are nice. No, it's not all as glamorous as it sounds. Yes, one of us held a pilots licence for a few years.)
Along the way some of us have been board members and executive team members for both private and public companies. We've employed teams of up to 120 staff and we've had a lot of fun.
But while we are proud of the experiences and we value the lessons learned, we try to be down to earth. We are doing this because we love it. We honestly want to 'Be The Customer' every day in how we approach things.
Anyway, enough history for today - back to the future or at least the present!
Feel free to browse the store if you have a few minutes
Until next time.... Gary
