We were joined by some of David Perkins’ friends and valued clients to celebrate his impending retirement.

The morning tea took place at the Geelong Library and Heritage Centre, where we couldn’t leave before taking in the stunning view of Geelong from the balcony.

We took the event as an opportunity to say thank you to David and to welcome the clients to the Canny Group family. All while getting to know them a little better and enjoying some of the memories they had to share.

We haven’t let David go just yet and he can still be seen around the Ryrie Street office for a little while longer. But he did cap off his speech by sharing that he has a few projects in the pipeline that will keep him very busy, so he has no intention of spending his retirement watching day time television.
