Vicki moved to Spain in 2003 not long after the birth of her daughter Millie. Her main reason for moving was to find a better lifestyle in the relaxed Spanish town she lives in “Coin”, which is predominately Spanish.

Vicki and her husband Dave (who is a chef) launched a company called Bladerunner Chef, where they had the sole export rights to import “Le Chef” clothing to the Andalucía area.

After living in Spain for a few years Millie started school and was the only English girl in the entire school so soon picked up the language but unfortunately didn’t have any English friends, that’s what made Vicki decide to create a group called “Kidz Inland”.

The concept was to get local expat families together to make new friends and have fun, she organized monthly events for all the family and ended up with over 190 kids in the group.

Due to the great success of “Kidz Inland” Vicki started up a Brownie Unit which was part of British Guides in Foreign Countries. The brownie unit then expanded into Guides.

In 2011 Vicki started working for Marketing Pirates of Dentistry where she manages and measures the teams KPIs, being a “D” DiSc style (Dominance) this is an ideal role for her.

Vicki also organizes MPODs experiences such as Treasure Map and Profits In Paradise – How To Live A More Remarkable Life.

Furthermore Vicki makes sure the MPOD office runs smoothly, that KPI’s are met, that each team member is equipped with the correct tools and processes to do their job.

Vicki is often the voice of MPOD. The one our members speak to when they have a request.

Each year MPOD choose a team member to accompany Dental Mavericks in Morocco. In 2013 Vicki became MPODs newest “Dental Maverick” where off her own back she excelled in taking on the role of “Patient Pathway”. Setting up the triage and managing the pathway from start to finish.

Susan Ward

MPOD TeamSusan was born and bred in a small village called Allerton Bywater, Castleford in the UK.

After leaving the local comprehensive school Susan worked her way up through the ranks of a top law firm in Leeds, becoming a senior manager of a 35 strong IT team across Leeds, Manchester and London.

The main focus of Susan’s role was to provide exceptional customer service to the clients. After all time is money for lawyers so any IT downtime was a loss of earnings.

Susan achieved this by implementing best practice, providing one to one coaching to team members and group training days where goals, targets and scenarios were discussed. Each member of the team had set key performance indicators which allowed them to be measured on an individual basis.

After 24 years service Susan was made redundant and decided it was time to change her life, in more ways than one. Not only was she embarking on finding a new job, but also decided that her personal life was ready for a new chapter and divorced, moving back to the village where she was born.

Susan not only took some time out to recharge her batteries and re-evaluate her life, but during that time she met her “first love” Christopher again on a night out in a local pub.

Not long after, Susan and Chris set up home together in the UK but over the years they would spend most of their holidays on the Costa Del Sol, Spain. It was on one of these holidays that they decided to move to Spain and in September 2014 their dream became a reality.

They both believe that life really is too short and whilst you’re thinking about it someone else is doing it! So here they are both living the dream! Happy days!

Susan’s disc profile is “S” meaning she is conscientious and methodical in her approach.

Susan has developed her role at MPOD over the years to focus on what her key strengths are, client service, people and organisation. Along with Jay, Susan has taken on the role of Personal Success Manager looking after our client’s best interests. Susan organises events, such as Royal Ruby Red, Heart & Mind and the Rise Up Practice Visits.

Susan was fortunate to visit Morocco with Dental Mavericks as a volunteer on one of the projects, helping to take children out of daily dental pain.

This was an opportunity that Susan felt she could not miss. It was extremely rewarding and enabled Susan to give back which is one of MPOD’s core values.

Jay Dickens

MPOD TeamOriginally from Waterlooville – Portsmouth Jay is a typical coastal girl and lived on the Marbella coast for 8 years before relocating to Coin. Luckily the sea is only a short 20 minute drive as beach walks, sunsets and cocktails are some of her favorite past times.

From the age of 4 Jay competed competitively in Gymnastics earning her a top spot in the Southern Region British Gymnastics squad and often trained with the GB team in state of the art facilities across the UK.

With her keen appetite for sport and coaching she completing a BTEC National Diploma in Sports Science at South Downs College after finishing her GCSE’s. Jay moved to Spain in 2003, Spain was her first stop in what was meant to be a few years travelling, however after a few months living on the Costa del Sol she decided to stay.

After a series of seasonal jobs in 2008 she found a small start-up company helping financially insolvent people organise their finances.

The small start-up then grew over 7 years to a team of 30 sale members and an admin team of 10 which she managed through all the stages of building the company.

In 2014 Jay wanted to start a family and had a baby boy in the October, when her Son James was 2 and in nursery Jay felt the need to get back to work and soon applied to join the MPOD team. Jay is an ’S – I’ style, meaning she is conscientious and methodical in her approach, while being outgoing friendly and fun.

Jay’s original role at MPOD was administrations but over time we have seen her strengths in creativity and bringing new ideas to the table. In a brainstorming session between her and her colleague Susan they came up with the PSM Role (Personal Success Manager) providing each member with a unique concierge service and direct contact here at MPOD, ultimately saving our members time while building stronger relationships.

We have recently launched our social media product “IMPACT” and due to her interest in social media Jay is our Social Media Account Manager.

Victor Zaragoza

MPOD TeamVictor is our most recent addition to the MPOD team. Born and raised in Spain, he chose to study English at the University of Malaga from where he graduated in 2014.

He spent some time in the UK, first as an Erasmus student in Coventry and later working for a rental car company in London.

After 7 months in the capital, Victor decided to move back to Spain where he could study his real passion, illustration and graphic design.

During the course he began doing occasional work for the MPOD newsletter and the Gold package. Reports and some video edition were included on his tasks as his experience grew.

On finishing his course, Victor became a regular member of the MPOD crew, at the moment he deals with any visual task including picture or video editing. He is also in charge of posting all the content created for IMPACT. More recently Victor started doing some work for Grow Your Business With A Book, where he gives format to the books provided by the practices

Every year at MPOD we have a competition, the prize is a fully paid trip to collaborate with one of Dental Mavericks’ projects. In 2018 Victor was the lucky winner and had the opportunity to visit their dental project on Lebanon.

There he worked as a photographer (you can see some of his work on DENTAL MAVERICKS Facebook)

This experience was eye opening for him and as he says on his own words “In all these places I found nothing but kindness and gratitude. From the kids, from the teachers, from the patients and from the people involved on the project. I can’t recommend the experience enough to anyone willing to help and ready to receive a dose of reality.”

Victor is an ’S’ style, meaning he is conscientious and methodical in his approach, which he needs to be when editing your videos and creating posts for our Impact Social Media Package.
