Erica and Colin welcome a baby boy!

On the 3rd of June, 2016, Erica and Colin McKay welcomed their new son, Nathaniel. Nathaniel is a beautiful and inquisitive baby boy who is growing healthily and mesmerising everyone at ICAN during his visits to our office. Erica will be back soon from maternity leave, resuming her role as consultant and project manager.

ICAN welcomes a new addition to the team!

Earlier this year at ICAN we farewelled our wonderful office manager Kath Porter after her family took a tree change. Kath worked as at ICAN for four years and we wish her well in her new endeavours.

In May, we welcomed a new addition to our small team, office manager Andrea Mathers. Andrea's wide range of skills and friendliness fit perfectly with the ICAN team and the projects and consulting that we undertake. She has extensive experience in leading an office team, specialising in client relations, accounting and risk management. Prior to starting with ICAN, Andrea worked as an office manager in weather information services and before that, in emergency management consulting. She also has a beautiful family (a husband, two children and a dog named Wookie). We look forward introducing Andrea to you at our upcoming events!
