Director | Business Process Expert.
Kia Ora, I’m Amber and I'm a Business Process Expert.
A little about me; I am a multipotentialite, a strategic thinker, an innovator, and I'm hugely practical.
I am passionate about helping people, I'm a youth mentor, a dog mum, I play netball with a group of amazing women and I love spending time in the stunning environment which is our outdoor playground.
I grew up in a small town called Oamaru, famous for its Whitestone buildings, little blue penguins, and Ritchie McCaw.
I LOVED sport when I was younger (still do!), I was a gymnast, a climber, a trampolinist, a netballer and I loved aerobics.
After my final year of high school, I had no clue what I wanted to do, in fact, still to this day, if you ask me “what I want to do when I grow up” or some variation of that question, it still causes instant sweaty palms.
As I have grown, I have learnt, that not knowing is actually a superpower, I learnt that I love working in business and the fact that I didn’t have a particular focus or label, opened the doors to so many more opportunities.
When I left high school, I decided to spend a gap year doing a Mountain Recreation course in the stunning town of Wanaka. I spent a year climbing, kayaking, mountaineering, and skiing (amazing – right?).
The problem was, after that year, I had no qualification.
So, I jumped straight into the workforce and became a sponge, I learnt everything I could in every position I had within whatever business or industry I was in.
I asked for opportunities, asked loads of questions, I worked hard and managed to learn about every facet of business, how each department works and how each department links with another.
Because of this, when I implement change in one area of a business, I know what impacts it will have on another and how that may challenge those involved.
It wasn’t until years later that I realised what that gap year gave me, it wasn’t just a year clowning around, it was a year of huge personal growth.
It taught me how to live in that uncomfortable and sometimes scary space and how to push through it to achieve amazing things. I learnt to “Feel the fear and do it anyway”.
This skill has been critical in my life and the experience taught me that education and learning comes from anywhere and everywhere.
In recent years, I have gravitated towards implementing new systems and processes to create efficiencies, in the businesses I have worked in.
So, when it came to starting my business (which was scary), the natural fit was to help other companies create efficiencies too.
I love helping people!
I have a wealth of knowledge across various software products.
I pride myself on using language that is easy to understand instead of jargon, because I know change and software are both scary prospects to most and I want to make the process as stress free as possible.
Perhaps even exciting!
I’m always keen for a coffee, so if you want to have a chat, give me a call.
Chief Support Officer.
Hi, I'm Gus!
I am a Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier; I love cuddles and I am what they call a hypoallergenic pupster. This means I don't shed my fur all over the place and if you have allergies, I shouldn't make you sneeze.
I come to the office sometimes, to ensure nobody is getting too stressed with the work that's being done.
I do have my crate in the office so if you are scared of pupsters, please let Amber know as I can be very welcoming upon arrival, us Wheaties do what is called a "Wheaten Greeting", it's in our breading, we can't help it, we just love to see people.
Catch you later!
