I would just like to take a moment to acknowledge an extraordinary woman, Billie Murphy. We recently held our annual conference for nearly 300 people on the Gold Coast and Billie presented o ... keep readingn behalf of Solar Buddy where she works as GM - Education. This was a corporate audience, at the end of a two day conference, and most of them were probably thinking about their flight home, until Billie stepped on stage.
