Key Employment was delighted to welcome Gill Hicks to their offices to speak to staff and later address the Coffs Harbour business community on the issue of resilience.
Gill was a successful Australian business person working in London when she was critically injured in the 2005 London terrorist bomb attacks. She survived, but suffered severe and permanent injuries, losing both legs from just below the knee.
It wasn’t until after the bombings that Gill decided to dedicate her life to being an advocate for peace. In 2007 Gill founded the not-for-profit organisation M.A.D. for Peace, a platform that connects people globally and encourages us to think of ‘peace’.
Gill is considered one of the most thought-provoking, powerful and life affirming speakers in Australia and the UK and Key CEO Chris Worboys was moved by what she had to say. “The big thing that happened to her could happen to anyone and you need to enjoy your life as much as you can.”
“I like Key Employment because it helps you with your job seeking and career. The trainers are very helpful with all of it. It is a lot better than school and I’m looking forward to getting my career sorted.”
“I am happy with the friendliness and helpfulness from everyone at Key Training. I have gained knowledge and skills about business which will help me in the future. I am really thankful to be helped and can’t wait to complete the course.”
“I like KAPOW because I can do the work well and the trainers are accepting. It is better than school and is helping get me a job.”
“The service I received and the training I received was the best I’d had in years. They made the whole process easy and it wasn’t difficult to ask for help when needed. Gerry is a great trainer, and all the staff were friendly & helped at all times.”
“My son is loving the KAPOW program. He said the whole group is really close and supportive of one another and he’s finding the Business course really interesting and relevant to what he wants to do with his life! That means so much to me, thanks Key Employment.”
