Introducing Our New Team Member: Paul Dyson
Following up on our previous post, we are thrilled to share that Paul has become the newest addition to the McGowan family, serving as our Quality Control Assistant.
Below are a few words from Paul:
Over the past 31 years I have worked in various situations including telephone insurance claims, office administration, running my own small programming business, and most recently in the charity sector. These have given me a great deal of experience with both the public and the business world, communicating with people from all walks of life. The benefit of this is that I have a good understanding of local and regional dialects, accents and idioms that can crop up in the many audio files we process, which should prove beneficial when providing quality control for the transcripts.
Working as part of a team is always a pleasure to me, and I love to encourage others as much as possible in the amazing contributions that they make.
Having seen my wife and son work with McGowan Transcriptions for a number of years, and after meeting several members of the team, I was very impressed with the leadership, dedication to detail and friendly camaraderie displayed by all. It was a real pleasure to then be accepted into what is clearly a strongly-bonded group of professionals who know how to have fun whilst providing their clients with the best possible service.
On a personal note, I am a family man, happily married for nearly 30 years with 5 wonderful adult children, and we recently found out that we’re going to be grandparents for the first time this summer! We also have a couple of our children’s dogs staying with us right now – a relentlessly loving German Shepherd cross Rottweiler called Bonnie, and her ‘big brother’, an adorable Siberian Husky with ice blue eyes called Einar. I enjoy playing the guitar and have recently joined the church band after a break of a few years, so I’m looking forward to getting back into the rhythm of things there again!
