People Productivity Potential

Jo brings a wealth of experience to help make Aussie workplaces into places that Employers and Employees  alike enjoy coming to and can thrive in by focusing on many aspects of People, Productivity and Potential. Many of us spend a large part of our day working after all.

Jo is passionate about helping people to become the best possible versions of themselves. She now wants the same for Morisset and the entire Southlake district.

“I see incredible potential here, I see the activity and growth happening in business and residentially, and I’d like to take an active role in developing the infrastructure priorities in the area for our future,”

Exactly what those priorities should be is up for debate.

But the key to having the district’s voice heard, and to getting things done, is collaboration.

Smart solutions to local problems could be closer than originally thought. The district is home to some exceptional retirees boasting plenty of know-how and experience.

“How can we harness their contacts, their skills, and their influence?”

Allen has a keen interest in accounting and computer systems and has joined the board as treasurer to improve our systems and processes.

He has mostly worked in the professional office environment and is very keen on helping people to get the most from their investment in equipment and systems.

More recently Allen and his wife Sue have taken up running Bluegum Boarding Lodge, and dog kennel and cattery business just west of Morisset.  This has brought a new set of challenges to which Allen has applied his skills.
