Luke Moody

Luke Moody Luke is a young trade qualified Butcher who preferred the career stability the industry offers rather than the potential offerings of University.  He has created a group called Apprentice Butchers of SA where members can network, learn and develop together outside of their workplace and RTOs.  He is keen to ensure that they can create long standing connections and identify with their peers to ensure the long term success of the apprentices and the industry as a whole.  Luke will undertake the Business SA Young Entrepreneurs Scheme (SAYES) to help him plan for the long term of this fabulous initiative which is his way of giving back to the industry.  Well done Luke.
