Sharon and Gillian packed up their lives in the UK and jumped on a plane to Australia with only 2 suitcases each and a laptop. They arrived on Australian soil with temporary accommodation booked for only 2 weeks.
They found a permanent house which also doubled as the office for the foreseeable future. They met up with Pippa McMahon, who was an ex-colleague of theirs from London. She was working for Nakama at the time which was a big player within the Digital industry and an immediate competitor within their space.
Digital Gurus Australia officially started trading. Working out of their new home, they made it work and put in the time and effort.
Sharon and Gillian did their first deal. After their success, Pippa joined as a Senior Consultant which was their first hire. Once Pippa joined the team they moved into a serviced office. They did their first placement in Singapore as part of their APAC expansion in 2015.

After the boundless success, Digital Gurus moved to their very own office.
