It’s that time of year again when our calendars are booked up with parties and events. Another year is almost over, and it has flown. As Avocado continues to grow and expand into new areas, the expertise and commitment from our consultants is world-class. I feel very proud to have such a wonderful team at Avocado, delivering projects of the highest quality.

Here at Avocado, we nurture, encourage and award our consultants as they are the core of Avocado and what we stand for.
