“Words cannot express how amazing Olivia Everitt is. She has been our organisation's Super Women on a number of occasions since 2017. I have never quite seen anyone work with so much attention to detail and with such time management efficiency. I am continually in awe of her professionalism. Her knowledge of the creative industries and her inner-sense to go that extra mile is one of her many super-powers. She always asks the right questions to delve further into a project to reach its core to ensure that maximum return can be made. It has been a pleasure to work with Olivia and she is always our first port of call when outsourcing our project work. So, jump to it - make sure she is yours too!” - Leigh Boswell, CEO The Young Company Theatre (Cairns)
