Iceberg Events Newsletter March 2016 - Welcome to Sally
Haven't we had a crazy busy couple of months since coming back from Christmas!
Recently, we welcomed Sally Crowley, our new bookkeeper, to the team. Sally is going to keep me on track (if she can!). We are in the process of saying goodbye to Narelle Hobkinson, who has looked after us for the past eight years, and has helped me manage the money side of things through a whole lot of growth, as well as the addition of Iceberg Travel a couple of years ago. Many thanks, Narelle!
We launched our new system for managing an online call for abstracts process too. I was tired of using other online systems that were inflexible and not very pretty! This matches the rest of our website and online registration forms, and we have a lot more control over how it works. We are still tweaking, so if this is something you might need to use in the future, now is the time to talk to us about your needs!
We found not one, but three fabulous new facilitators for our NETWORX events - which has brought a new energy and excitement for us in the office, and I hope that translates through to the events that we do.
Oh, and we had some events happen as well! Cornetts IGA Managers Conference in Hobart, Foot Locker Asia Pacific Team Week, Puma Energy's first ever Super 7 Conference as well as the APHA National Congress all on the Gold Coast, Domino's Pizza Rally in Brisbane and the start of the Seek Roadshow in Perth and Adelaide.

welcome to sally, our new bookkeeper
What do you like about events?
Bookkeeping made fun, that’s what it is at Iceberg! I really enjoy contributing to an event where there are so many different people and stories - there is a huge amount of diversity with each event. The chance to be part of such a creative and energetic team is was what enticed me to Iceberg Events. Looking forward to experiencing the adventure with them!
What is the best trip you've ever taken?
We sailed from Rome to Nice as a family on a yacht along the Italian coast stopping at little ports along the way, including Pisa and Porto Fino. We enjoyed eating Italian food - fresh bakery goods from Isola del Giglio, peeling prawns on the back of a boat and saw the most amazing scenery of one of the most beautiful coasts in the world all seen from the water.
