Local entrepreneur, Sue Green took time out from work to fulfil two of her passions – travel and helping others less fortunate than herself.
Sue is the owner of Portishead based Cloud HR software provider HR Pulse. She launched HR Pulse 5 years ago after spending 20 years in industry, latterly at Rolls-Royce in Derby.
Sue said it’s been a fantastic experience to build my own business after spending several years in the corporate world.
“I’ve spent a good deal of time developing my dedicated HR software. It came about from conversations with clients who wanted a simple HR system which provides a safe pair of hands to simplify procedures and minimise the risk of employment tribunal claims.”
“Having fulfilled many of my strategic ambitions for now, I felt like it was time to spend time doing something to re-energise myself whilst helping others."
“I’d heard about a company called Traveleyes which matches sighted and visually impaired travellers to provide a unique experience for both.”
“I decided on a trip to Swaziland in Southern Africa. As a sighted guide I was paired with a different blind or partially-sighted person each day.”
“Guides share their experience by describing the wonderful sights around them. The trip included safaris, staying out in the bush and a visit to a local school.”
“We experienced wildlife including lions, zebra, giraffes, rhinos and had a close encounter with a charging elephant.”
“Hearing the experiences of the schoolchildren was also very humbling. Many have a two-hour walk to school and the only meal they have is provided by the school.”
Back home Sue is diverting her energy into the business and is a Trustee on the Board for Voluntary Action North Somerset.
As a guest speaker, Sue is going to run a one-hour workshop for Weston Chamber called Remote Working - Staying Connected. This workshop will be running on Thursday, 25 March at 10.30-11.30 am. For further details, please click here to reserve your place.
