Q&A: Kelly Bourke, SOS Print & Media Group

The SOS Print & Media Group sales manager has been with the Sydney firm since 2002. Bourke is an accomplished ballerina who loves music but hates to find empty toilet rolls on the holder. If she wasn’t in print she would be an event organiser – or a secret agent.
