What is the leadership lessons we can learn from GoT?
Our reasons for participating at the HBF Run for a Reason this year could maybe not even be counted on one hand. There are many reasons why we wanted to participate.

There can be good and bad to most things in life; it all depends on what path you follow. Some tech giants are starting to pay attention to the good.

Let’s be honest: some days are slightly more fun than others. Thursday 28th March was one of those days, where the Illuminance team had plenty to celebrate. For one, it was both our CEO’s birthday and our Junior Project Managers’ birthday.

This weekend, Illuminance Training collaborated with University Hall to give a one-day course; “Office 365 in the Workplace” to a group of Aboriginal and Torres Islander youth currently studying at the university.
