reduction of hours - not influence
They say all good things must come to an end but sometimes you can stave off the end and cling onto a bit more of that good thing before it goes completely. And so it is with our much loved, much respected and much admired Portfolio Manager, Charmian Boon.
Having given immeasurable support and commitment to get us to where we are today, Charmian is reducing her hours in order to make more time for chocolate, livestock, and making the odd batch of the worlds best sausage rolls.
I’m sure she’d argue that the demands on her time are otherwise but don’t believe a word of it.
At first we thought we were going to lose her completely but then we managed to convince her to stay on in a mentoring and training role for one day a week until such time as no amount of begging will keep her here. Long may that day not arrive.
As well as building an excellent rapport with all her Portfolio contacts, Charmian has consistently provided us with a safe, dependable pair of hands in assisting with the creation of processes and procedures, training other members of the team and generally being a vital part of the company dynamic.
We are therefore extremely relieved that Charmian has decided to keep her hand in for a little while longer and whilst she might not be at the end of the phone quite as often as those of you used to dealing with her have become used to, she is still about. Furthermore, Charmian is passing on a careers worth of guidance to our less experienced Administrators who will ably pick up the baton for her clients with the usual PSG aplomb.
