WOW! I can’t believe this is our last issue for the year. My how time flies when you’re having fun! We’ve made a bumper issue for you to head into Summer. Deborah Mailman. What can I say? Such incredible talent and a really downto-earth friendly person. It was an absolute pleasure to meet and have a talk with her. And the amazing doesn’t stop with Deborah. We also caught up with the indomitable Yolonde Entsch. You’ll be impressed by how she empowers the vulnerable and less fortunate women in communities here and in PNG. Talent abounds in the Gostelow family from Mackay. We meet Kristy Gostelow, (aka Tia Gostelow’s mum!) who shares with us how she ventured into music management. If you’re looking for the best schools for your offspring, make sure you read the profiles of our Leaders in Education starting on page 52. Another well-informing feature is our NDIS CONNECT highlight – your source to our best NDIS providers – where we have spotlighted the leading service providers in the North.
