Torkit Business Solutions is proud to be involved in providing administrative assistance to the South Burnett Community Leadership Program committee in helping with preparations for upcoming Community Leadership Programs.

Tina Torrens, Torkit Business Solutions Manager and Business Consultant, had the opportunity to be one of the 15 graduates in the first program held back in 2014.  "It was a life altering experience" Tina said.  "I met like-minded people who shared common goals and we still keep in touch, also crossing paths at local events".

Kylie van Schyndel joined the team at Torkit in October 2015 as a Project Officer and went on to become a SBCLP participant in 2016.  "I honestly did not know what I was getting myself into but I trusted Tina and her experience and had also heard from other past participants who got so much out of the program" Kylie said. "I am so glad to now be part of the organising committee as both a volunteer and as a Torkit staff member.  I would recommend this program to anyone who wants to learn more about themselves and be a part of a wider community network".
