How Brett’s job gave him the cutting edge

A lot can change in six months when you’re in the right role in a supportive workplace. Just ask Brett.

When Brett moved to the Sunshine Coast looking for employment, his verbal communication skills were minimal, and when he was able to speak, he had a severe stutter. Six months later, Brett is in charge of the forklift operations at Cutting Edge Cabinets.
