TESTIMONIAL

“We really needed somebody to help us start up the social media side of our business because my partner and I, we just didn’t have a clue. When we went onto Facebook we just got referrals coming every day. So it was an amazing response, an amazing thing that the guys did for us.”

Business Owner, Lifefit, Kiama

“For those young people it’s an authentic experience and I think that’s one of the things we need to focus on, authenticity. We want to be able to give young people a real taste of what the world of work is actually like.”
