As a growing business, we can get caught up in where we are heading next without stopping to take a breath and reflect on the achievements we have accomplished to date. When we first became partners with Google in 2007, it was a major deal and today, 10 years on, having held the accreditation for 10 years it is worth celebrating Mrs Cali said.
As part of the celebration of 10 years of continuous improvement, training and certification as an award-winning GACP on the leading edge of Googles reach Mrs Cali did a a live streaming interview to Facebook with MMJ Real Estate managing director Geoff Jones.
Mr Jones was invited to speak as a client but his talk also provided plenty of Wollongong history.
