When Dane was awarded the Apprentice of the Year title, he was incredibly grateful and honoured.
“The recognition is very humbling, it was a special moment, especially as I got to share it with my family, boss and good friend who had come along to support me.
“A real highlight for me was meeting all the other contestants. We obviously come from different regions around New Zealand, but from the first moment we met, we all got along so well. It was great to meet like-minded people, who at the end of the day just want to have a laugh, learn, and enjoy the experience.”
