ChewiGem & Sensooli
Kim was approached by Jenny and the team at Sensooli to contribute to their training and product advice. Sensooli provides products designed to support sensory process needs.
Over the last three years, Kim has had support from a variety of advisors. She would like to recognise the huge contribution they have had in helping her to grow GriffinOT to where it is today. Without their support it would still just be an idea which Kim tinkered with in her spare time.
