Tracey has an absolute passion for technology, especially gadgets and apps and she loves to tell a story. She has worked for over 20 years within the telecommunications and software industries in a variety of roles, focussing on the users and how they interact with technology.
Tracey started out as an instructional designer – designing training for network engineers for a national telecom. A move to a small mobile telecom software development company saw her role expand into writing technical guides, working with programmers to design UX, product testing, product marketing, and travelling the globe helping roll out mobile network call centres in interesting places like Afghanistan, Guinea and Liberia.
Tracey and her family moved here from New Zealand over 10 years ago where she released her inner Englishwoman, rocked her love of royalty, cream teas and village fetes and became a master cake decorator and pizza maker. But the call of the geek is strong and Tracey is now back working for a software company, this time project managing and content writing.
Tracey enjoys solving a puzzle and has relished the task of designing a solution for TreatOut and being able to work with her one of her “adopted english sisters” makes the this project even more special.
Deborah’s area of expertise is business within the hospitality industry and until recently she successfully ran a local golf course with a strong food and beverage following. With over 25 years in the trade Deborah has worked in a wide range of businesses from small boutique hotels to large international corporate groups.
Prior to her family, Deborah worked in sales and marketing and could be found striding around in very high heels, usually on her way to meet clients in some of London’s finest hotels and restaurants. Deborah’s daughter was diagnosed with Ehlers Danlos Syndrome in 2012. Using diet and physiotherapy exercise to manage the condition is Deborah’s mantra. This is why TreatOut is so important to her. Deborah is a sibling in Tracey’s adopted family and they have been friends since Tracey arrived in their quintessentially English village.
