For me, diving back into a tech sales role was a bit daunting, but Jono helped ease me into the process and made me feel at ease. He was always available, always keen to help, and always wanted best for me. Simply put, he took my Earlywork experience to the next level. I can't recommend Earlywork Academy enough
