Keys to a new era
News Article from Tuesday 2nd May 2017
DGT's chairman of the board John Blakeney today proudly handed over the keys to the offices at 295 Ruthven Street to the incredible Hear and Say organisation.
This morning's changeover of ownership function was attended by each organisation's leaders and the honourable Mayor Paul Antonio. Mayor Paul Antonio was glad to welcome this national organisation into our region and proclaimed he was excited for what the future held for both DGT and Hear and Say.
Local news channels 7 and WIN were also curious to see what this meant for the business premises in such an up and coming area of Toowoomba.
Anna Warby pictured with her son George is one of the Hear and Say's team with a very personal connection to the organisation. George is profoundly deaf and having worked with Hear and Say lives a very normal life. His cochlear implants in both ears and working with speech pathologists such as his mum is how George has achieved such a fantastic outcome.
DGT will continue to share the premises until our purpose built offices are complete at 56 Duhig Street, expected to complete in the 3rd quarter of this year.
It may be the end of an era for DGT at this location however we are positive about the beginning of the new era at Duhig Street and for Hear and Say at Ruthven Street. Two local powerhouse organisations under the one roof! We couldn't be more happy with our new landlords!
