Last year, Jono Bredin took the big leap and moved out of his family home and started a motivational speaking business.

Jono lives with disability as a result of cerebral palsy and he requires a tablet for verbal communication.

Last month Go Digi teamed up with Network Partners, East Arnhem Regional Council (EARC) and The National Centre for Indigenous Excellence (IDX) to deliver IDX Flint.
