TEAM AWESOME : THE PEOPLE BEHIND YOUR PEOPLE
THE IDEAS MAN
Never leave food laying around, our little meerkat will pop up out of nowhere if you do. We always joke if you need to find him in a hurry, place the snacks near your desk and he’ll emerge from his hiding space sniffing out the goods.
Having literally grown up in the business, Clayton is TP Human Capital. He is extremely focused on supporting his community and understands what is needed in the local market. His ability to interpret what the client wants and bridge the gap between what they need, and what will work in the local market, is a skill that you can only pick up over a lifetime working in the business.
THE INFECTIOUS LAUGH
You can generally hear the lovable laugh of our very own fashion guru before you see her. When she isn’t fixing our mistakes she is drinking coffee or chasing Milo her office pup around the office, he’s always into mischief.
Sue has been with the company since 2007 and knows TP like the back of her hand. And the back of her hand is what she sometimes needs to use being the Finance Manager to keep us on budget and performing.
THE ENGLISH ROSE
Our British Lady is famous in the office for her refined accent which we are more than happy to try replicate daily. Some may call it teasing, we call it imitation, the highest form of flattery…
Grace has her BA in Psychology and can help with career guidance and HR issues that may arise within your company. She also takes care of our White-Collar clients finding the right fit for CEO roles to receptionist roles. But wait, the fun times don’t stop there, she is also an accredited Facet5 practitioner!
THE MOTORCYCLE ENTHUSIAST
When he's not busy exploring new ways to bring out the best in people, Dean can be found doing some two-wheel touring around the streets of Townsville with his doggie sidekick, Finn snuggled up in his backpack. This dynamic duo are often seen reminiscing about their weekend adventures over coffee and bacon at Tide Cafe.
As Townsville's leading expert in behavioural-based learning and development programs, Dean heads up our HR services department and specialises in building workforce capacity with engaging programs based on proven neuroscience and social psychology theories.
THE BURDEKIN BOGAN
They say, “what you see is what you get”… but we’re never sure what we might get from her other than food. She will try and feed us, even when we are full, shoving platters and chocolate under our noses!
Stevie-Lee has a strong management background with experience managing teams of up to 80 staff! Juggling the needs of many and keeping her team focused has become second nature and that is why she takes care of our Mining clients. Entry level positions and admin to operators and supervisors, whatever the role you need.
THE FITNESS GURU
A lover of all things fitness, Peta really raises the bar when it comes to employee health and well-being. She generously shares her vast knowledge and experience to help us all achieve the best versions of ourselves. And while she may be biting off more than she can chew with some of us, the effort is still appreciated!
Through her successful business and charity ventures, Peta understands better than most what it takes to stay ahead of the competition. Joining the TPhc family in Recruitment/HR, Peta applies her experience and proactive, problem-solving approach to the people solutions required to future-proof your business.
THE CREATIVE ROCKSTAR
They say Jimi Hendrix is the world’s greatest guitarist of all time, well Brian is our homegrown version! He can often be found doing a quick jam in his breaks and if you’re lucky enough you'll get to experience his talent as part of your training program.
Brian has a remarkable ability to relate to people at all levels of the workplace which he translates into unique training expereinces. He has a background in corporate training, communication styles and performing arts. He specialises in the neuroscience underlying human interaction and applies this knowledge to his teachings in leadership, team building, difficult conversations, and communication strategies.
THE WARMEST HUG
When you think of home, that is our Felicity. She is warm, and kind, and grounded and always brings in the BEST homemade desserts that comfort you and remind you what is good in this world.
Felicity has been a part of the TP Family since 2007. She started off as our receptionist and has grown in the business to now take care of everything Training related (and let's be, everything we need to keep the office running!). She's the go-to person for planning and customising your training and development needs.
THE CLASS BEHIND THE CHAOS
Between a baby, rescue dogs, husband and work you would think you would just see a blur moving fast in front of you, right? WRONG. She always makes time to check in with you and have a laugh, bounce ideas around and share her insights.
Tina is passionate about people and organisational change and loves a challenge. She thinks of out of the box and creates interesting and engaging learning and development strategies to enhance the performance of the organisation and its staff.
TP GENIUS BAR
Alec is our technological go-to guy! He also has an eye for the unusual and a flair for photography, which means he always has an interesting story to share.
Alec delivers our scheduled and customised Microsoft application courses. He has experience in video production, audio engineering, computer maintenance and is in the progress of getting his bachelors in IT with a minor in Computer Science and Networking.
THE RAY OF SUNSHINE
If you are ever having a bad day, Lori will be the one to brighten it up. She loves being around people and really thrives on talking to and engaging with people from all walks of life.
Lori, our Canadian born Aussie, has been with TP for many years and is still excited about learning and delivering our Training courses. Lori delivers our scheduled and customised Microsoft packages as well as professional development courses including Managing Workplace Priorities and Mastering Meeting Minutes
OUR OWN BINDI IRWIN
It takes a special kind of person to open your heart and your home to care for injured wildlife, and that's our Justine!
We’re lucky enough to get snuggles with those babies when they come into the office, the gift that keeps on giving!
Justine supports our entire recruitment team with her wealth of knowledge and experience in the industry so we can focus on the needs of our clients.
THE PEOPLE PERSON
An oft shared joke within the business world refers to HR as being “anti-people, people people”. However, this cannot be said of Sean who genuinely cares about the people he engages with. His mind is as sharp as his wit, and combined with his huge heart, Sean provides the ideal balance of pragmatism and sociability when solving business and people related challenges.
Sean brings over 20 years’ experience in leadership, facilitation, coaching to the TP human capital team. His pragmatic, hands-on approach to developing people and businesses is underpinned by extensive experience, qualifications, and research in law, strategy, governance, conflict resolution and economics.
We know better than anyone it’s inappropriate to say the boss is cute but woah, our boss is cute!!
Quinn is no doubt the one running our ship, from the moment she walks through our doors she commands our attention. She rules with an iron fist and will give you the look of death if you turn off Bluey or try to stop her eating the food she’s dropped on the floor.
She might be the laziest boss in history but when she decides to rock up she brightens the office every moment she is there.
OUR TP OFFICE DOGGOS
Don’t let his size fool you, he is the BIGGEST sook you’ll ever meet. He will sit by your side for hours on end making sad puppy eyes to bribe treats and snuggles from you.
The mother hen of the group, she’s a nurturing old soul, but even she needs a little time out so you can often find her hiding on the couch trying to find a little peace and quiet..
This tiny terrier is in the office every day and if you cannot find him, head to the kitchen. He’ll be there ready to catch any and all bits of stray bits of food.
Don't let his distinguished looks fool you. This cheeky little bundle of energy loves a good mud puddle as much as the next doggie, but he also appreciates keeping his moustache clean so be sure to keep a comb on hand!
Henry is the baby of the TP Moral Team but don't underestimate his capacity for treats. He can put away just as many pup-cakes as his bigger team mates if you let him!
