People are our secret sauce!

From day one Seagrass has attracted and retained people well above any benchmark, because they feel appreciated at a deeply personal level and can freely contribute to the health and growth of the business. Everyone is encouraged to be their authentic self, to work together with a strong sense of optimism and a belief in a shared outcome.

The ‘people first’ culture is performance oriented, drawing out personal strengths, encouraging individual and collective growth, all woven together with a sense of good humour and inclusiveness. We enjoy celebrating the wins and rally around to tackle the challenges. Trust in the purpose and the people in equal proportions is the success recipe. You can’t have one without the other!

TEAMWORK ⁠
⁠
A special shoutout to Kate Thomas (Marketing Specialist - 6Head/H&B AUS/UAE) for her TEAMWORK. 🌟⁠
⁠
Whilst Kate is always a team player, over the last month, during the absence of  Monique (who has been enjoying her honeymoon), Kate has gone over and above. She has not only managed her own brands (H&B/ 6H), but also taken on the management of an additional brand (M&WCo). She delivered on all the seasonal menu updates, executed all the weekly requirements for each brand and the cross department meetings. Kate did this all with a smile and a willingness to help, no matter the challenge. ⁠
⁠
In addition to looking after all M&WCo needs, Kate has also been tremendous in working directly with David Ovens (Head of Marketing), to manage some of the organisational and external partner changes that have been necessary. ⁠
⁠
Kate is truly an asset to the Marketing Team and the business overall. ⁠
Thanks for all that you do Kate!!⁠

🌟 Shout out to our incredible Inbound Executive, Mavis! 🌟⁠
⁠
Lewis and Mavis recently represented Seagrass at the 44th Australian Tourism Exchange, the largest annual business-to-business event in the Australian tourism industry, held in Melbourne in partnership with Visit Victoria. With 1,500 Australian seller delegates and 700 buyer delegates from over 30 countries, this event was a hub of global tourism connections!⁠
⁠
Mavis, our Inbound Executive, is a true star in the tourism industry. Her extensive knowledge and unwavering dedication make her an invaluable asset to our team. Her passion and expertise shine through in everything she does, and we are beyond lucky to have her as part of the Seagrass family. 🌿 ✨⁠
⁠
Thank you, Mavis, for your outstanding contributions and for always going above and beyond. You make Seagrass proud! 💼 🌍 👏⁠
⁠
In addition, we thank Lewis, our National Reservations & Inbound Manager, for the commitment and passion he brings to Seagrass. How lucky are we to have such dedicated, amazing team members!!⁠
