Meet the Team – Inverawe’s Heart

June 6th, 2013

Meet Andrea, our darling Office Manager.  She’s been at Inverawe for four years and is the voice of calm for both her colleagues and the many customers who she talks to on a daily basis.

She makes sure all the orders are processed for both Trade and Mail Order and then deals with any issues arising on delivery, packing and products.  Literally she is at the very center of Inverawe, answering questions from “where’s my order?” to “what’s the best way to serve Gravadlax”.

Always ready with a cheery smile and always there to solve a problem, you can rest assured that she will always go that extra mile.   When asked what she liked most about her role here Andrea said,  “Being able to help people.  Whether it’s choosing a lovely gift or product to fixing things if they go wrong.  It’s always good to turn a situation around for the better and leave a customer satisfied.”  However there are some customers who even Andrea struggles to help, she remembers once being stumped by a customer who demanded that a helicopter  deliver a parcel after it had been delayed due to horrific weather conditions.  “Our carriage charges may have to increase by a substantial amount for that service!”

Andrea says the only thing she would wish for at Inverawe is a team of  “our own delivery drivers” which she would “hand pick”!

Her five word description of Inverawe is……  Fun, exasperating, friendly, manic, interesting.

Inverawe would be thoroughly lost without her.

 Here she is looking after wee orphan lambs on her partners farm, Andrea is definitely our “carer”.

Meet the Inverawe Team

June 3rd, 2013

DeannaWHere’s the first of our meet the team interviews.  We hope to be able to bring you a little insight into, not just what we do here but indeed, “who does” it.

First up is our Fabulous Foodie – Deanna Williams.

Deanna lives in Leith, Edinburgh, and has been Inverawe’s Trade Sales Manager for 8 years.  She is a phenomenal Foodie and just loves being out and about in “Foodie Heaven” looking after our Farm Shops, Delis, Food Halls, Restaurants and even the odd Train – Orient Express springs to mind!

Although Edinburgh is home she does have a hankering  to be over on the West Coast and can be found on the Isle of Mull on holiday whenever she can.

When asked for five words which sum up working for Inverawe she responded  “Funny, Fishy, Fantastic, Frantic and occasionally Frustrating.

Here’s Deanna with Martha, her wee girl, out enjoying a cycle.  Deanna said there wasn’t much cycling coming from the back pedals!

This morning marks an end of an era and the start of something very exciting at Inverawe Café!

The swings are being dismantled, to be replaced over the winter with a fabulous play area which will be ready forThe Play Area the 2013 season.

Watch this space and in the meantime why not share your memories of the old swings and slide with us.

I can’t believe that the young grandson I pushed is a big strapping lad who is going off to university  next year!  Did you push your kids in the baby swings?  Were you brave enough to stand up on the big swings or did your granny and granddad take you on the swings when you were wee?
