We were very fortunate this month to receive several secondhand items of office furniture from Danny's Desks and Chairs in Maroochydore. A big thank you to the team for their generosity.
Also, if your organisation would like to better harness the power of team building, Clare Edwards from BrainSmart and Kim Taylor from Ultimate Speaker are holding a world-class workshop on fostering an inclusive and collaborative team environment. Don't miss your opportunity to get involved.
Until next month,
