Out and About in November

This month we have performed jobs from McLaren Vale right through to Clare. Some of the other interesting things we have done over the last month include:

  • David attended a networking evening at the Adelaide Oval hosted by the Adelaide Crows and BusinessSA.
  • Attending some great networking breakfasts and luncheons. If you would like an invite let David know.
