Why ‘taking careers further’ is such an easy task for Gary:

“I first became interested in the group training industry as a mature aged apprentice when I had the opportunity to help a fellow apprentice who was struggling with her training and was considering dropping out. I helped her complete her apprenticeship and she then progressed on to start her own business in Melbourne. I got a great deal of self satisfaction out of helping her and the outcome that was achieved which led me to work towards a career in this industry. I still get a great deal of enjoyment out of helping apprentices and trainees achieve their desired goals."
