TEAL WATKINS - Casa Leisure

The fact that Teal is nominated under ‘Casa Leisure’, rather than a specific facility, is an indication of his ongoing commitment to Casa Leisure and our customers. Teal has become quite the Mr Fix-it lately; in fact Teal’s probably not sure whether he’s the Manager of St Clair, Seaford, Alice Springs, or all of these.

Following changes to the management of the Alice Springs Aquatic & Leisure Centre in late March, Teal enthusiastically – and gratefully - accepted the offer for a temporary assignment in Alice Springs. He packed his bags over the Easter weekend and was there within 5 days. This is the 3rd time Teal has provided management support at the Alice Springs Aquatic & Leisure Centre in the past ten months, where his leadership and management style elicits an immediate, and positive, response from the staff team.

Teal has also undertaken professional development in the aquatic industry over recent months, obtaining both Lifeguard and Pool Operator qualifications in his own time.

Teal has been the Manager of the St Clair Recreation Centre for 18 months, where he has effectively led and developed the team. In addition, he has provided management support at Seaford Recreation Centre over the past 5-6 months. Teal has juggled these responsibilities skillfully.

Teal’s effort has contributed significantly to our business success and operations, and his efforts are worthy
of recognition within Casa Leisure. Great work Teal!
