Organiser of the Month - Beth O'Donovan

21st August 2017

We are regularly inundated by mentors nominating their team members for Organiser of the Month, but sometimes it's great to hear when a mentor's efforts have been appreciated by their team. August's Organiser of the Month is an incredible support to her team, and a great example of what it means to be a mentor.

Beth was nominated by her team member, Coral Brown, who says that Beth is an incredible mentor and team leader.

"Beth is always there to answer your questions and encourages you in every step you take. If you're having an off day she'll message you just to see if you're ok which means alot. The group that she has formed is incredible; there's so much love and support on there and I'm so proud to be part of it.

She's amazing, kind, generous and lovely, nothing is too much for Beth, even on her holiday she's still liking the posts in the group.

Sometimes Beth doesn't praise herself as much as she could do, she's very modest and that's why I think she deserves to win the award."

Beth, shares her Usborne story with us:

"After my twins started school I began looking for a 'work from home' type job I could do so that I was able to do the school-run etc easily. After a few months of looking I joined Usborne with no real intention of it being a proper job...

19 months on and I love it! I have been a Team Leader since May 2016 and have a really fantastic team of ladies, many of whom have become good friends as well as being my team mates.

With local team members, I try to meet them as often as possible. Our meetings always involve cake!

With team members who live further away, I ring them as often as I can and a 5 minute call nearly always ends up being an hour + as we like to chat a bit!

I organise regular training for the team and am always popping onto our Facebook team page to do a live, usually when I'm so excited about something I have to let them share in it! I seem to do a lot of my Facebook lives in the car before the school run!

I love that Usborne has given me more self-confidence, I'm not 'just a mummy' anymore and it's also helped me to make some great friends at the same time as building a strong, friendly and supportive team."

Congratulations Beth! A copy of our August Book of the Month will be on its way to you very soon.
