“In September, we had organised a press conference at EPIC to speak about the issues faced by the spouses and partners of non-EU highly skilled professionals towards accessing employment opportunities easily after relocating. This was an important event for us and we have to acknowledge that we could not have found a better venue than the one you gave us. The arrangements were outstanding and your support on the day was so amazing, prompt and efficient.”
— Ankita Ahluwalia, Immigrant Council
“Our Foreign Minister was very impressed with EPIC, its design and the story it told. All the connections with Australia gave it a real relevance. The fabulous researchers were even able to find part of her family history, which added a real personal touch.”
— Simon Mamouney, First Secretary and Deputy Head of Mission, The Australian Embassy.
