“Elena has completely transformed the business, delving much deeper than the initial technology offering.”
Dr Marty Brewster is building an online wellbeing community for entrepreneurs. His challenge was to find someone able to tell the story and principles behind the business with one significant point of difference: as a wellbeing business, they needed to embody those principles.
A firm believer in building a remote and flexible team, Marty was an early adopter of Beam’s philosophy. With Wellbeing Consult ramping up before launch, Marty needed someone who could help personify and amplify his vision; to tell the story. Ensuring they were the right fit for the organisation in skills and mindset was paramount.
Beam offered advice and expertise throughout the process from drafting the job description to streamlining candidates and preparing for the interviews. But, says Marty, it was the calibre of the talent that was the difference.
“Within days of the campaign launch we had lots of applications. I was very impressed with all of them — the difficult decision quickly became who to appoint rather than whether we’d be able to find someone at all.
“I needed someone who could take Wellbeing Consult and build a thriving community around our pursuit of a healthy mind, body and business. Elena has completely transformed the business, delving much deeper than the initial technology offering.
“Elena is a clear indication that there is a demand from top talent for flexible work — she brings incredible skills to the business and her unique perspective as a small business owner. It’s been a game-changer; she has been a game-changer.”
