Key Achievements

At times, j2's creative direction for the annual Client Appreciation Dinner featured performers and celebrities with high national profile such as Mary Coustas (comic character, "Effie") and sporting great, Fatty Vautin. Entertainers of this calibre, coupled with experiences in unique venues such as the Queensland Museum – dining beneath the skeleton of a fossilized Muttabuttasaurus, ensured OneSteel's event became much anticipated in their clients' calendar.
