Mount Isa Institute of TAFE held an event for staff members and members of the local community. There was a breakfast, prizes, and their guest speaker was Sonja Wessels who owns and operates Terrace Gardens Function Centre, a local catering business.
Sonja started the business with a dream to provide mobile catering in Mount Isa at a time when there was nothing like that available. Her business has grown from there to a centre that not only provides mobile catering, but also caters for weddings, special events, business functions etc. Terrace Gardens started as a desolate block that has now been turned into a tropical paradise in the extremely harsh climate of Mount Isa, a feat in itself. Sonja told her story of great tenacity and determination to get her business up and running and to turn it into the success it is today. She encouraged all present to follow their dreams and not give up.
