MEET THE TEAM

Sue, the Owner,  has been in the Herbal Beauty and Soap Making business for  25 years.   " I am passionate about my garden and all things herbal and most of all I love sharing my expertise and entrepreneurial spirit with others"   I believe it is so important to LOVE what you do for a living and this dream has certainly been realized since coming to Zambia,10 years ago.   The people in Zambia are very receptive to new knowledge and extremely health and natural beauty conscious.  It has been a pleasure and privilege sharing my knowledge and experience with some 3000 plus students and customers so far.

Alistair -  my husband and co-owner, looks after our administration and local marketing and being a retired Business Consultant, has streamlined the entire operation with regard to administration, costings, recipes, and marketing material. 

Over the next 5 years we will be empowering our team of 5 ladies to become the owners of All Kinds of Everything.  This process started from 1 September 2022.   I will always remain a small shareholder guiding and dealing with sourcing and logistics but the ladies will gradually buy their shares in the business and run all the day to day production and sales.

Penny  ( A qualified teacher)  handles sales in store and online as well as the administration related to receiving stock and all money matters.   Also our product recipes, product labeling  and quality control with the assistance of Vera. 

Shop Merchandising and most recently the preparation of the Online Shop are all part of Penny's busy day.    Penny is also learning to give the Soap Making Courses and will train Vera to be her assistant.   An all rounder, Penny attends to customer sales in the shop and has a good knowledge of all the products. 

Chi  -  Our Star in Production.  Chi makes ALL our products with the assistance of Doreen and Brenda.   The Staff member who has grown the most,  Chi knows everything there is to know about our raw materials, recipes and formulations.  A strong hard working staff member that is always smiling and willing.   Chi is an expert at making our Aloe Vera Gel and has also become our Soap Making mold maker.

Doreen and Brenda  - Young ladies who assist Chi in production, labeling and both are taught to assist in all areas of the business.   Each one is also developing their own specific expertise.   They are responsible for

Doreen makes all the Glycerine Soap manufacture for other customers and is becoming the expert in making the Eco Cleaning Products under Chi's guidance.  Doreen has also recently taken on the responsibility of managing the Bottle and Jar store.   This is now kept perfectly clean and tidy making stock issue, ordering and control a pleasure.   Showing great growth and potential as a complete multi tasker and most recently has become involved in shop sales, assisting customers, invoicing and cashing up.  

Brenda is our Castile Soap Maker a long slow cooking process. Brenda also handles the production of the Baby Range of Products which we made under the direction of a Baby Hydro Spa.  Baby safe, Natural products used by lot of new moms who are keenly Eco conscious.   Brenda has been tasked to look after our herb garden and is slowly gaining the knowledge needed for this task, including plant identifying, watering needs, harvesting and drying.  

Vera - a very bright versatile young lady,  is being used in many areas and developing her expertise.  Vera is being developed into Penny's full backup and assistant able to handle sales, invoicing, shopping and cashing up.

More recently she has become our primary Artisan Soap Maker to assist in this area of growing demand,  as artisan soap is used in our cleaning products.   We have just formulated our own 100% Natural Melt and Pour Soap Base , making this a cheaper and more natural option.  Reducing Carbon Footprint as the raw products do not need to be imported into Zambia.   Local ingredients, Zambian manufactured.     2 options have been formulated    - One contains kaolin clay and the other is a Pure Glycerine Melt and Pour.  Both Soap Bases are amazing and the very best anyone can use in natural Bath and Beauty products.

All staff multi task and we all label products, pick and dry herbs and assist with production as required.   Its a real team effort and we are blessed to have such a wonderful team who get on happily with their daily tasks and never have a problem if we need to work a little extra when a big order needs completion.

ALL KINDS OF EVERYTHING is WHAT THIS TEAM MAKES it.                                                    EXCEPTIONAL.

 

Sue, Alistair and the Team
