Really pleased with how yesterday went

Yesterday’s conversation about establishing a business was fantastic!  We hope that the people that attended live and those that watched it later will find it useful.  Kayt and Gary were speaking from personal experience as successful businesspeople with disability who have set up businesses themselves and coached others to pursue their entrepreneurial potential/aspirations.

Thank you @Kayt (our Company Treasurer), Rollie (of @Plan Partners), @Fiona (our Company Secretary) and @Gary (our CEO) for your contributions. It is greatly appreciated.
