TOLITA DUKES

Tolita has lived in Airlie for over 18 years, during which time she has grown with the region, actively alongside and within many businesses.

‘I moved to the beautiful Whitsundays in 1998, I just love it here. During my study at the University of Queensland where I completed my Bachelor of Business, majoring in Tourism Management, the Whitsundays was a subject of some of my studies, leading me to move to the area in 1998.

Since, I have worked with in various areas of the tourism industry, including for Fantasea Cruises and Hamilton Island. During this time I wrote many tourism awards on behalf of Fantasea, which won a number of Queensland Tourism Awards and two Australian Tourism Awards. At Hamilton, I had the privilege of participating in the Best Job in the World Campaign, an amazing experience which opened my eyes to the extreme reach of the internet – local is now global. During this time I completed my Masters of Business Administration at Deakin University in 2011.

What our Clients say

  • One of the best decisions I made earlier on when starting up my business was the seek the marketing advice from 8 Seconds. Tolita took my original little clinic into one of the busiest natural health care centres in North Queensland.
    I believe one of the biggest mistakes small businesses make is in house marketing by either yourself or someone who is inexperienced. I think it’s best to stick to what you are good at and allow Tolita and her team at 8 Seconds to take your business from great to awesome.
    I highly recommend 8Seconds for any type of business, big or small..
