Last Meeting: Alison Hobcraft from Earthlink
 
Earthlink is a multifaceted business operation and one of those areas is training in employment skillslead by Alison.  90% of their clients are beneficiaries wanting to enter or re-enter the workplace.  They conduct training sessions on health, safety, and wellness in readiness for entering the workforce. Funding of wages is generated from the other operations, including WINZ and the DHB.
 
This was a highly entertaining evening!  Alison and her daughter had everyone present involved doing 2 practical exercises....and we literally got tied up in knots. Alison delivered information with such good humour that we ended up feeling Earthlink clients were in very good hands.  They have a wonderful service.
