On the 15th of February, Aaron attended the Continuing Education Bendigo graduation ceremony and was proud to present Sonya Taylor with the Education Support Studies Award. 

In what was a fantastic evening, students graduated from a myriad of courses ranging from life skills to business management.

On Saturday night, 18th February 2012, Design Experts were thrilled to win the "Fastest Growing Company (Under 10 Employees)" category at the 2012 Australasian Business Excellence Awards. Kylie was also a finalist in the Young Entrepreneur category.

The ballroom at the Gold Coast Sofitel was packed with supercharged businesses who were all keen to find out whether they would win one of the many awards presented on the night.

There was awards for Best Customer Service Results, Best Turnaround Company to Best Overall Company (Under 500).

Local Bendigo Businesses  we well represented as finalist, including; Glen Loddon Homes, The Green Clean Team, Groundswell Australia and Design Experts.  All of these businesses are supercharged by Action Coach Paul Henshall.

The Green Clean Team won "Most Innovative Business" as they work closely with the Department of Human Services and Haven to holistically help clients with clean and hoarding issues.

Winning this award does help to confirm that Design Experts are on the right track.

It was great to meet the founder of Action Coach, Brad Sugar who besides being a Multi-millionaire was inspirational in the topics he delivered.

Overall, the 2 days to the Gold Coast to listen to Brad and other professional presenters on ways to improve your business was sensational.  With pages and pages of notes and actions, one leaves the Gold Coast with a sense of satisfaction, exhaustion and plenty of "to-dos" that will help us to move forward and potentially take out Fastest Growing Company (Under 50) next year...
