Welcome to FatCat Promotions, where we go out of our way to help you choose the best promotional products and gifts for your valued clients and staff members.
We realise how valuable your time is, which is why we will do everything possible to make the process of acquiring your promotional / branded products, as easy for you as we can.
The owners, Tracey Lyons and Alison O'Callaghan, have more than 30 years experience between them in the customer service field (they started really young, honest!). FatCat Promotions has been their baby since 2007.
Tracey has worked as a sales rep in the printing industry for a number of years, so she actually knows what she’s talking about when it comes to print quality and making sure that what you would like is what you will get.
Alison has spent a large part of her working life with one of the biggest suppliers in the hospitality industry in a customer services role, so she knows the importance of customer satisfaction and prides herself on providing exactly that.
Due to both our interest in the environment and an increasing demand by our clients for eco friendly products, we are constantly looking to source both New Zealand made and genuine environmentally friendly products. We are also searching out suppliers who are serious about their Corporate Social Responsibility.
On a lighter note, Tracey and Alison enjoy a bit of humour (life’s too short to be miserable!), so apologies in advance for that, but they are serious about one thing in particular and that is having happy, satisfied customers at the end of the day.
Right, here's a photo of hubby and mine's work-in-progress!
This is FONZ1E - a 1939 Ford Barrel Nose.
We try and take her out as much as we can (whenever "he-who-thinks-he's-a-mechanic" isn't working on her!).
In the last few years she's survived going from Auckland down to Christchurch, been on loads of weekend and day trips (including several Beach Hops) and even been down the drag strip at Meremere a couple of times.... not bad for a 75+ year old!
We have 4 children and a grandson and none of them cost as much as the truck does! In fact, we may have to sell a couple of them off soon to help pay for it! (If you are from CYFS / Social Welfare, just kidding).
So I don't have any really cool old cars, (I have parts of my body that feel really old - does that count??).
I have a grown son who went through Steiner education.
Apparently I am supposed to have interests outside of work .... I hear it's called a life!
So thought I'd start by taking up running .... does walking 9/10th of the way then running from the letterbox count as running?
Also taking up Yoga - my teacher says I should be able to touch my toes within 3 years!! Yay me!
When I am not busy with all this exercise, I like to spend quality time socialising with my friends, Winnie, Ingrid, Nelly & Ed (WINE for short!).
OK, so still searching for an interesting hobby - apparently WINE drinking is not a good enough hobby - so I'm told! I can get new friends, Alison!!!!
