Trainers Needed For Our Know Your Car Workshps - Brisbane, Gold Coast and Melbourne

Why this car is automatic,
It’s systematic,
It’s hyyydromatic,
Why it’s Galmatic!

Galmatic is an all Australian company, with a strong passion about empowering women to take the driver’s seat when it comes to cars, driving and the road safety of their family and friends.  

Our philosophy at Galmatic is;
Independence Knowledge Fun Liberation Empowerment
Our Vision is: 
To be a movement for all Australian Women to engage with: a car culture where as a community of women we work towards a zero road toll on Australian roads. 
We are a one stop destination for women looking for car care and driving courses and information; in an open and non-threatening environment.  
We think of ourselves as an old fashioned garage: where you know your customers and provide them with second to none service.  
Our company is community focussed and supportive of flexible work hours which creates an enjoyable company culture for our staff. 

We specialise in:
§  Car Care Workshops for Women: which are fun, interactive and informative
§  Defensive Driving Courses for Women – skill building and engaging
§  The Galmatic Car Care Handbook for Girls – every girl’s glove box essential
§  Information: Blog articles and monthly Newsletter
§  Creating Confident Women Behind The Wheel  

We are holistic in our approach; we are a total car care garage.

Our belief that women have the potential to do anything they put their minds to is what led us to work with and support the work of the Layne Beachley Aim For The Stars Foundation.
As a company run by women, we are constantly juggling work commitments and the pleasure of caring for our families and the never-ending chores of running a household!  
We wanted to not only show, but also to inspire other women to do the same and follow their dreams.
The Layne Beachley Aim for the Stars Foundation provides financial and moral assistance to girls and women across Australia to help them realise their dreams in sporting, academic, community or cultural pursuits.  
In a nutshell it helps women of all ages to aim for the stars and pursue their dreams – and although we play only a small role – we are proud to be supporting the foundation and being a part of the journey of so many amazing women. Galmatic is proud to support The Layne Beachley Aim For The Stars Foundation. 
We donate $5pp from every workshop and course that we run Australia wide.

Who are we looking for? 
Do you have a training background or perhaps just love to teach?
We are looking for enthusiastic and dynamic women, who enjoy working with people, are looking for flexible working hours and enjoy cars. 
You don’t need to be a mechanic or even have extensive car knowledge; just a passion for working with people. Oh and of course excellent communication skills is a must!  
We also love people with a sense of humour and a sense of fun.

Train The Trainer

I was featured in the Sunday Magazine in an article entitled mum entrepreneurs which focussed on the difficult side of working from home. It is my first encounter with being interviewed and not seeing in the written print what I thought I was saying.
I’m not famous – so therefore I’m not used to reading something about me that doesn’t quite seem 100% me.
The article focussed on the difficulties associated with working from home with children – but in reality, is any type of work with children easy? Whether you use a nanny, day-care, or you have them at home with you – all mum/work roles are a juggle.
So whilst reading the article (click here to read the article) I tried to identify what I miss the most about working in the corporate world outside of home, and the clear thing that I missed was training.
I miss being assessed, developed and trained in new things, new ideas and new techniques.
So I plan on correcting this and have decided to put myself through some courses and classes to make sure that I both keep myself trained and also work with like-minded people.
Last week I was at Sydney Drag way, working for Driver Skills Australia with the company’s Managing Director – where I honed some of my skills and refreshed some of my teaching habits. I have been teaching a long time (over 20 years) and sometimes I stand outside of myself and think “Eleni did you really say that?” I am really looking forward to the next 6 months – I plan on being very clever by New Year! Will keep you posted...
