Story of Natasha Hutchinson
We believe in creating opportunities for individuals to utilize their strengths so that they can feel greater happiness and fulfillment in life. To demonstrate this we will share the story of Natasha Hutchinson. Natasha was hired as a receptionist and is an absolute ninja in this role. However, we soon recognized that she had amazing talent in a range of areas outside of her normal reception roles. We noticed that Natasha had over 20000 followers on her personal Instagram and Facebook pages. This told us she was talented in this space and also that she really enjoyed working with social media.
We asked her to take over all of our social media and she has done an amazing job. Initially we purchased some books on advertising to invest in her education. To further support her in this role we organized a Facebook advertising specialist to train her so that she could learn about paid Facebook and Instagram advertising and then implement that in her role.
This wasn’t enough for Natasha though, so we asked her to take over managing our Google Adwords campaign. We have continued to invest in Natasha through weekly coaching to train her in managing a Google Adwords campaign that she now runs and have trained her in compiling the marketing section of our monthly management report.
Throughout this process Natasha had demonstrated a keen interest as well as a natural talent in graphic design so we asked her to take over our graphic design. As a big thank you and to further invest in Natasha we bought her a Mac Book Pro with full Photoshop suite so that she could take over our graphic design including business cards, posters, banners, letterhead, pamphlets, signage and overall branding. Natasha then went to complete an online graphic design course and to further invest in Natasha’s development we enrolled her in a diploma of digital marketing so she can continue to grow in her role.
Upon completion of her marketing diploma, Natasha continued to strive and blossom. She has since taken over the marketing for all the Avenue Dentals (5 practices) and co-ordinates our Australian Dental Graduates programs. The sky is 100% not the limit for Natasha!
Testimonial from Natasha Hutchinson
“You wouldn’t think that you could grow to love a work place like your actual family and home until you experience Avenue Dental. I have never felt so nurtured and cared about in my whole working life until I started here. I’m not new to the dental scene and am close to reaching my decade in the dental industry. In every role I’ve had working in other dental practices, once you reached a point there was nowhere further for you to grow, you hit the ceiling. Here, Steve and Eli encourage you to grow. They provide the water and nourishment for you so that you can grow into the most beautiful tree soaring above the skyline. For them, wherever you want to grow, wherever your passion lies, they want to grow with you. If you have a passion, they will enlist all their strength to help shape you towards it. It is a beautiful thing to have bosses and managers who value you as a person and an employee.
They go out of their way to say ‘thank you’ for working hard and doing extra things for them. However, those things extra I do, is a way of me saying ‘thank you’ to them, for all they have done for me.
We are a family, we laugh together, we cry together, we share milestones, we share our passion for helping people.
I am home.”
