    Thankfully, whilst Cairns and Townsville dodged the fury of Cyclone Debbie it, none the less, had a big impact on our regions. Townsville caught the northern edge of TC Debbie as it headed on its destructive path towards the coast experiencing strong winds and heavy rain. All of Townsville’s schools and many of its businesses were closed. The Bowen, Proserpine, Whitsundays and Mackay regions were hit hard and the system has continued to cause flooding down as far south as Northern NSW.

    We are in! We are loving our new office which, thanks to our great builder Joe Brookes and his team of fantastic tradies, was completed on time. There were no problems along the way that Joe could not quickly sort out for us. All that rain was a blessing as a few leaks popped up that were promptly fixed. Thank you to our design team at Myriad Design whose work has been excellent and made the office finishes and overall design just beautiful. Future Computers and our sparky Brad from FNQ Electrical had our IT up and running the day before our move.

    Happy New Year to all our clients, candidates and colleagues. I hope you had lovely Christmas and New Year celebrations with your family and friends. It is always such a busy build up to Christmas: lots of fun, shopping and socialising which is almost exhausting by the time the holidays arrive.  Once all the festivities die down, it is such a nice break and time for us to reflect on the year that was and to set goals and plans for the new year ahead. It seems the whole country goes on holidays between Christmas and Australia Day.
