Each week we have a special guest speaker, usually one of our members, who offer insights into their specific industry, advice and general thoughts on running a business in this day and age. The presentation is followed by a lively Q&A session which is often as illuminating as the talk itself.
20TH JUNE – SPEAKER: GERALD MURCIA LEAL
ABOUT MY COMPANY
Our founder and owner, James Russell, started this business with just one single and clear goal: To revolutionise the local moving business and experience. He spent a lot of time studying the way other local removalists worked and saw a lot of room for improvement.
Established in 1998, Citymove has become one of the largest and most recognizable removals firms in Australia. Starting in Sydney with just one truck, we now have over 30 trucks across Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, and Canberra.
Proudly the company is a member of the Australian Furniture Removers Association (AFRA) and services the nation with their fleet of more than 30 bold pink trucks.
Our “Men in Pink” have gained a reputation for being fast, fit, and efficient. Our hard-working moving professionals have enabled us to help over 10,000 Australians relocate per year.
During that time, we’ve been tweaking, taking feedback and really listening to our customers to find out what they wanted and needed from removalists for both local moves and interstate moves.
Today we’re proud to say we’re not only trusted by our customers, we’re recommended. The 4 key pillars of our success? Punctuality, Price, Certified, and “Everything Else”!
Experienced Customer Sales Manager with a demonstrated history of working in the transportation/trucking/railroad industry. Skilled in Management, Customer Service, Removals, Fishing, and Dance. Strong sales professional with an Engineer’s Degree focused in Management.
Gerald has been with Citymove for over 2 years and overseas the areas of Operations and Sales.

ABOUT MY COMPANY – TOP 3 BY DESIGN
A concept born in Australia and unique to the world, top3 is about editing options, not limiting choice – reducing the excess that falls outside the top3 parameters of quality, innovation and style.
With excellence at its core, top3’s range features well over a thousand products, but never more than the 3 best items in their respective class by merit of design – everything from homewares and accessories to kitchen and dining.
Top3 believes in fostering design, not stealing it, so all top3 products are 100% authentic. top3 also wants you to feel safe and secure when shopping online. When it comes to privacy and security, no stone is left unturned. For detailed information on the top3 privacy and security terms and conditions, please click privacy and security.

I am a wife, mother, designer and Australian entrepreneur who is fuelled by a passion to unearth the best designs on the planet and share them with a wider audience.
I believe that creative design is everywhere and work tirelessly to bring top3 fans an edited selection of the very best. I am just like a kid on Christmas morning when new products arrive in the warehouse — spurring on the hunt for the next amazing piece to add to the top3 collection.
My eye for innovative design has made me a sought after leader and mentor in the design community. I am a judge on the Australian International Design Awards, Launchpad, and the Design Discovery Awards in Chicago. I am a host on the Television Series – Australia by Design – Innovation, which aired in November and December 2017 with the second series approved to go ahead in mid to late 2018.
My husband has an Advertising Agency and we are both passionate about our own businesses. I have 2 sons, Jay (17) and Zac (14). Jay lives in Manchester and is training at the Manchester International Footabll Academy (he has been training in Germany since he was 14 and moved to Manchester end of 2017) He hopes to be a professional footballer Zac loves to do editing and works on some projects for me from time to time!
