“We are about to have our Sales Kick Off in the Hunter Valley, we are setting up a sales convention and it is a two day event. David Procter will give a review of the year and tomorrow I will set up our sales strategy and the new direction. It is a good chance for comradery, for people to share and work together towards a common goal.
“I look forward to helping the team achieve success and continue the stellar start we have had in the first year of the official launch of industrial print.
