Team Total Synergy - The wingmen behind your Wingman

Synergy team

Scott Osborne — Founder and CEO of Total Synergy.

Scott Osborne

Founder and CEO

Scott's the boss. He has an irrepressible passion for business, technology and giving back to the community.

Close

“Just quickly…”

Scott was enjoying a distinguished career in professional services (*cough* accounting! *cough*) and software sales, then one of his clients asked him to find a better technology solution for running his AEC design business. Synergy was born (probably in the kitchen or bedroom, if it’s a real software origin story).

It’s this entrepreneurial spirit that underpins our company’s success (and ultimately saved Scott from a career in accounting). Give Scott half a chance and he’ll “just quickly” draw explanatory diagrams on his Surface (or a napkin), causing eye rolls and enthusiasm in equal measure.

Damiaan’s knowledge of Will Ferrell movie quotes is unsurpassed, so just play along if he says something weird. Stay classy!

When Matt isn’t delighting his team with his effervescence and energy, he’s most likely in the kitchen. As an avid baker, there’s nothing he likes better than using his spare time to whip up some healthy goodies (with the requisite excellent tunes playing in the background, of course).

Finance Manager

Praveen is Total Synergy’s financial wunderkind — his outlier love of spreadsheets keeps Team TS in Happy Number Land.

Praveen is the numerical guiding light of our biz ops team, managing the company finances like a champion. He’s a chartered management accountant with (count ‘em) 25 years’ experience. We know, impressive!

In his own words, Praveen loves working in finance because, “you get the opportunity to work with and provide support to every department and get the satisfaction of seeing any support you provided help that department to achieve its goals and thereby see the company achieve its goals.”

Like we said, he’s a legend!

When he’s not doing the TS sums, you’ll find Praveen outside doing sports (or, as the case may be post-2020, inside watching them), helping out with his kids’ soccer clubs, or feeding the TS Team our daily news updates. What’s not to love?!

“It’s never too late.”

Sandy is a challenge conqueror who loves being able to rise to and resolve a problem. Her professional dilemma dashing began in 2016 as a QA before she became a front-end, then back-end developer, before being gleefully snatched up by Total Synergy in 2019.

When she’s not here settling serious development squeezes, you might catch Sandy reading novels, playing with her dog, learning piano, catching up with friends, throwing the occasional batch of cookies in the oven, or heading up the Total Synergy lunchtime adventurers’ group (with special emphasis on Sydney’s jacaranda trees).

We’re extra lucky to have the talented human that is Jenny on board to build, fix, and fortify Synergy features. She has been in the development game for eight years — working for the first four on desktop applications before blossoming into her work on web applications for the last four and joining Team Total Synergy in 2020.

When she’s not blitzing our software’s dev, you’re likely to see Jenny playing games like Final Fantasy XIV and the Yakuza series, lifting some serious weights, or entertaining and annoying the family cat.

“That’s the good stuff”

Kieren is one of the wonders working in Total Synergy’s amazing dev team. He’s been a developer for 3 years now and is one of the youngest TS Teamsters on staff — bright eyed, and bushy-tailed, as it were! He’s a born problem solver and bright spark, bless his cotton socks.

When he’s not nailing the development of our software, Kieren is likely gaming (a pastime he admits to being “too big a fan” of), listening to music (drum’n’bass, if you please), drinking a refreshing beer, or balancing it all out with a fitness-frenzy of a hike. We couldn’t be prouder to have Kieren on board Team TS.

Divyansh Jaiswal — Business Analyst/QA for Total Synergy.

Divyansh 'DJ' Jaiswal

Lead BA/QA

Divyansh’s role is to work out how and why our users use Synergy software, then he tries to break it.

Close

“Never allow the same bug to bite you twice!”

Divyansh started analyzing and testing software in 2013. His attention to detail and patience drove him to become a business analyst with us. He enjoys translating business problems and opportunities into user stories. He also enjoys the technical challenge and loves breaking the software!

If Synergy works the way it should to satisfy our customers’ needs, and he can’t break it, it means our developers and product designers did a great job. If he can break Synergy, it means bugs, bugs and more bugs! Either way, our customers win.

In his spare time, Divyansh likes playing cricket and table tennis, cooking, and comics. He’s also a keen gamer and once competed professionally in Battlefield 3 (very successfully).

Ashleigh Thompson — Business Analyst and Test Analyst for Total Synergy

Ashleigh Thompson

BA/QA

Ashleigh works in one of our development teams testing Synergy to ensure each release meets design expectations and is bug free.

Close

“I came, I saw, I broke it.”

Ashleigh (‘Ash’ to those deemed worthy) began breaking software in 2015. Her role is to analyse our customers’ business needs, turn them into requirements in development, and then test against those requirements and do her best to break the system and find the bugs. Our software developers think she’s great. No, they really do!

In her spare time (well, all the time) she’s a self-confessed Doctor Who tragic who is known to don a Cyberman costume and follow sci fi conventions around Australia. It’s quite normal in her role to shout ‘you will be upgraded’, and ‘delete!’… isn’t it?

Jen is a dazzling member of our wonderous development team, smoothing the way for fabulous features in Synergy software.

“You are beautiful in your own way”

Jennifer began her brilliant BA/QA career almost 10 years ago, in India, testing software there. She reached the land of Aus 6 years ago and we were lucky enough to bring her curiosity, sociability, intelligence, and all ‘round good nature into the Total Synergy fold in 2020. And we couldn’t be happier with ourselves about it!

When she’s not de-bugging for Synergy software, you’ll find Jen atop a horse for a riding lesson (she loves ‘em), baking desserts for friends and family, DIYing décor, or tending to her plentiful indoor plant garden. She’s a sparkling, multitalented gem, and another treasure in the TS trove.

Georgia Keighery — Content Marketing Specialist / Writer for Total Synergy.

Georgia Keighery

Content Marketing Specialist

Georgia is our resident wordsmith, writing blogs, newsletters, articles, scripts and whatever else helps create useful and usable content for our customers.

Close

“If in doubt, throw some more words at it.”

Georgia writes! On a good day she writes a lot. Also on a good day, she reads a lot. Georgia has been writing professionally for more than 22 years (which is tricky, because she’s only 27 years old*!). She began as a playwright and general over-user of words. She says she loves writing “because you get to connect with readers in a bodiless, mind zone and agree to explore imagined worlds together. You get to honestly connect with people and their experiences. At very best, you get to show someone, through your writing and their reading, that they’re not alone as they glimpse something of themselves in your words”. Which is better than we could have said it.

Georgia’s five-year plan is to start an all-girl roller-gang. “Not a derby team, you understand (too pushy shovey for my liking), but a roller gang,” she says. “We will roll around the streets, wearing short shorts and knee socks and gold, hoop earrings, and we will chew bubble gum and look mean. And intermittently, we will break into choreographed roller-dances”. In view of this master plan, Georgia began roller skating lessons about a year ago. She’s not very good at staying upright, yet, apparently.

Close

“Hard work pays off”

Amazing Anna made the move from the North of England to join Total Synergy’s London team as an SDR in mid-2020 following graduation from a bachelor’s degree in Sociology and Business Management. Anna’s spark is defined by her drive and diligence, and her natural capacity to connect with people. She strives to thrive. And from watching her, we can confirm that she succeeds. Legend.

When she isn’t mountain climbing (she made it to the top of Mt Kilimanjaro, folks!) or traveling the world, you’ll find her socialising (dragging friends out on fitness endeavours) or challenging the team to impromptu gymnastic comps (her days as a stunt cheerleader mean she always wins — no surprise there).

“Hard work beats talent when talent fails to work hard.”

Josh’s excellent engagement with Team Total Synergy began in mid-2020 — shortly after his graduation from International Business and Chinese Language at the University of Westminster. His target-smashing goal-orientation is only matched by his passion for people and the provision of solutions. He’s a diamond, folks. What’s more, after throwing himself in the deep end by spending two years living in Hong Kong – he is definitely no stranger to rolling up his sleeves and getting results. Winner.

When he’s not driving his fast car wearing a vintage Manchester United jersey, you’ll find Josh in the gym, playing football or basketball, watching a Lakers game, or brushing up on his Cantonese.

In her own words, Sylvia says, “I love this type of work because it’s very hands-on and I love interacting with people! This role creates opportunities for me to work with and meet people.”

When she’s not filling the Sydney office with her effervescence, you’ll find Sylvia making candles, collecting perfumes, reading, or at a climbing gym where she does bouldering. We’re proud to have Sylvia’s boundless energy and interest onboard Team Total Synergy.

“Be good or be good at it”

Monika’s excellent effervescence was at work for 5+ years in consumer services, photography, and medical fields before she joined the fabulous fold of Team Total Synergy. Her first ever job saw her speaking with architects and builders about waterproofing and generating leads for the consultants of the company. So, this isn’t her first built environment rodeo either.

When Monika isn’t enabling eminence in Synergy success for our lovely customers, you’ll find her drawing, watching crime TV series and documentaries (with her scared partner now realises she knows how to commit a murder and get away with it), or playing some Animal Crossing. We couldn’t be more pleased with our luck to have Monika on Team TS.

“That’s betterer!”

Anne has worked in several roles in both customer consulting and product development. She’s now part of our frontline customer success team. With this background, Anne knows Synergy inside and out from a functional perspective and from a business use-case perspective.

Anne’s ICT career began in 1990 specializing in service delivery, training, documentation and helpdesk management, in both the public and private sectors. Oh, and she’s a bit of a Doctor Who fan!

Anne Thompson — Services Consultant for Total Synergy.

Carla Papadimatos

Customer Success Specialist

Carla is Total Synergy’s very first graduate and she’s debuting her impressive skills with our outstanding customer success team.

“Just keep swimming.”

We couldn’t be happier to have Carla leaping into her brilliant customer success career as a specialist with us in #TeamTotalSynergy. Carla’s a keen and compelling communicator who’s always eager to expand her skills, learn more about the customer success field, and increase her software knowledge on Synergy.

When she’s not gliding our customers through a graceful experience with Synergy software, Carla’s bags are packed and she’s off to explore new places, both domestic and international. The only thing that makes her happier than a new destination to investigate, is when there’s new food to try there.

Levi Blatchford

Customer Success Specialist

Working with the can-do club that is our customer success team, Levi bounces our customers to their best Synergy life.

“Space, The Final Frontier”

Levi has worked with IT for over 5 years, crossing over into customer experience, customer engagement, and customer advocacy more recently. That’s a lot of ‘customer’ there, we know, and we love it. Team Total Synergy nabbed Levi as he moved into his passion for working alongside a digital service. Lucky ducks that we are!

When he’s not lighting up the Total Synergy office (virtually, or in person) with his excellent and mild-mannered nature, you’ll catch Levi playing video games, going to the beach, hitting the movies, or embarking on weekend adventures to random destinations. Winner! Every team should have themselves a Levi.
