Meet the members – Hilary Cadman
What is your business?
My main business is technical editing, mostly in health. It’s a great job because you can do it from anywhere – all you need is a computer and an internet connection. I also have a side business creating online courses to help fellow editors to use technology.
How has the pandemic affected your business?
Initially it had quite an effect, and my work slowed right down, but now it’s back to normal and I have work booked up for a few months. I’ve only had a couple of jobs related to COVID – editing an information leaflet on the pandemic, and giving a webinar on risk communication.
What prompted you to join the Chamber?
I joined the Chamber when I moved to Bellingen in 2012, to meet other local business owners. I joined the Board a few years later, to represent people working from home. Recently, I’ve taken on the job of Secretary, so one of my tasks is producing this newsletter.
