About us

This site was developed to help up and coming country kids make the most of their potential future career. The people profiled on CKC are a mixture of successful country kids and business people who are committed to help you get a leg up in your chosen field.

My story as the founder of Country Kids Connect is that I left Gilgai, a country town in regional NSW at the age of 17 years. I moved to Sydney and carved out a career, which then saw me launch my own media agency that has 30 talented people working with me. It is a $50 million media business that I am extremely proud of.

So go on and reach out to the individuals, businesses and other country kids featured on this website. I’m keen to hear about your future success stories.
