“With the respect and gratitude; the Board, CEO, Staff and Members of CEPA Cooperative Limited recognise 10 years of dedicated and exceptional service by Gavin Beever as Director and Deputy Chairman of the Board (2003 – 2013)”. CEPA is an independent cooperative of 1,000 members and has a retail site in Bendigo. It is the largest independent supplier of stockfeed in Victoria.
“Heather, the organising committee of the recently held Queensland Landcare Conference wishes to express their appreciation for your participation, facilitation and support of the conference and in particular the running of the workshops and information sessions. We attribute the smooth running of the conference to your professional attitude, teamwork and commitment to the performance for Landcare”.
“Gavin’s people related skills and leadership abilities are exceptional. Gavin readily encourages and praises others for their achievements, but is humble of his own achievements, while offering guidance, support and stimulation for improving their ideas and concepts. Sometimes appearing to take on more work than could be handled, he is able to plough through many tasks, reflecting his methodical and well organised nature. To any future employer I give my highest recommendations” – Mr Col Paton, Senior Experimentalist, DPI.
“Heather, I appreciate the time and effort that went into this plan and I know this was often well outside normal working hours. Your ability to work with a team and communicate technical information to others was greatly appreciated. The Wimmera Catchment Coordinating Group could not have achieved the final plan without your enthuisiasm and dedication”.
“I highly recommend Gavin as an individual with enterprise, a desire to assist the farming community, excellent organisational skills, an ability to understand technical issues and at the same time to be able to translate these into a form easily understood by farmers. And most importantly, Gavin is a person with a personality which encourages a rapport to develop between farm and adviser” – Mr Harm Van Rees, CropFacts Pty Ltd.
“Heather’s very considerable skill in engaging the participation of each of the Working Group participants in this very important part of our project has not only brought us closer to developing a regional vision for the Wide Bay but has also contributed significantly to a range of less tangible, although significantly important outcomes” – Mr Bernard Cleary, Project Director, Wide Bay.
