Newbery Consulting VET News – 21st June 2019

Hello and welcome to VET News,

You know, it occurred to me recently that we all need to stop and reflect on the great work those around us do on a daily basis. I am very fortunate to be surrounded by some very talented and smart people at Newbery Consulting. Whilst I am the public face of Newbery Consulting, I have a wonderful team working alongside me that support our many clients everyday.

Our client support team is led by Bree who coordinates our client support effort, Kate and Jacquie are supporting our clients with software support, Casey is developing amazing assessments, Sarah is coordinating our software development program, Jen manages our client engagement and social media and finally but not least, Dave is performing his magic in software programming.

These guys are Newbery Consulting and I would like to acknowledge and thank them for their commitment and professionalism they give us every day. We are a bit of a crazy geographically dispersed, virtual business but somehow it works just perfectly.

Good training,

Joe Newbery
