Congratulations to Sarah Pearce of our Stanthorpe office and her husband Nathan, who welcomed a beautiful baby girl, Hannah Elise, into the world on October 26.

Power Tynan hosted the Commerce Roma Business After Hours Function on Thursday 24 October. This event gave Commerce Roma members the chance to network with other business owners while discovering the suite of financial solutions Power Tynan has to offer. As part of the presentation, Skype was used to connect the Toowoomba and Roma offices, to show that staff don’t have to be physically present in an office in order to assist clients.

Congratulations to Chelsea Brunckhorst of our Stanthorpe office on her recent engagement to her partner Kurt.

On Thursday 17 October, CEO Paul Hilton spoke at a morning tea held for scholarship recipients at the University of Southern Queensland. All Power Tynan employees currently partaking in the Scholarship Program also attended this event.

 

Interviews are currently underway for Power Tynan’s 2014 Graduate Scholarship Program. This program has been offered to Year 12 graduating students for the past six years, providing an opportunity to study a business degree (part-time) at any University while working for our company on a full time basis. We pay the individual’s HECS fees for all successfully completed subjects, while they benefit from applying their knowledge practically and receiving valuable on-the-job mentoring and training. Watch this space for the announcement of our 2014 Scholarship recipients!

Congratulations to our school based trainee Zoe Boccari on being named School Captain for 2014 at St Joseph’s School, Stanthorpe.

As you may already be aware, Power Tynan’s Brooke Shatte is a Young Ambassador of the Stanthorpe Apple & Grape Festival, being held in March 2014.

The role of a Festival Young Ambassador is to be the face of the Festival and help raise funds to keep the Festival financially viable. Each Young Ambassador is sponsored by a business or organisation that supports their Ambassador in their Festival fundraising efforts.

Brooke’s current fundraising venture is the ‘On the Beach Resort – Bribie Island’ raffle, with the prize being two nights’ accommodation at the 4 ½ star resort as well as a $50 Caltex fuel voucher to assist with travel. Tickets are $2 each with the raffle being drawn at the end of January 2014.

All the staff of Power Tynan are throwing their full support behind Brooke and wish her all the best in her fundraising endeavours.

Members of the Toowoomba office are volunteering at the Christmas Wonderland held in Queens Park, an event which raises much needed funds for three major local charities – Lifeline Darling Downs & South West Qld Ltd, Toowoomba Hospital Foundation and Toowoomba Hospice.
