Information and Communications Technology (ICT) Business of the year 2019
We are very pleased to let you know that on Friday 15th November 2019 we were awarded the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) Business of the Year for 2019 at the MyBusiness Awards.
We were pleased to be selected as MyBusiness Awards Finalists in October so this is pretty exciting for us and I’m really pleased for the recognition our team has received for their hard work in creating new electronics based products for manufacture in Australia. And the vast majority of those products are communicating products in the Internet of Things category.
Here are some more shots from the night.
This really caps of 2019 for us. We start a new IoT project every 3 days at the moment so looking forward to what another 12 months deliveries for leading edge Australian made smart products.
We are very pleased to announce that we won the Casey Cardinia Manufacturer Award for 2019. This has been a long time coming and I’m very pleased for the recognition of what our team are doing for Australian Electronics Manufacturing.
Our congratulations go to all the finalists and winners and especially Gumbaya World for taking out the Case Cardinia Business of the Year.

This year we are again exhibiting at IoT Impact. But we also have some breaking news for the event.
I’m part of the panel discussing IoT and Industry 4.0 uptake in Australian Manufacturing and also the opportunities for manufacturing IoT products in Australia. That last part is a core part of what we are doing so I’m very pleased to be contributing to that discussion.
You might remember we won that category in 2018 for the IND Technology EVFD system that helps prevent bush fires by detecting faults in the grid including insulator breakdown, tree branches rubbing against overhead cables and even cable strands snapping in high voltage power distribution 3 phase and SWER networks.
IoT Impact is on next week in Sydney. There is still time to book and I’ve just heard there are 110 speakers involved and many workshops and a presentation covering every aspect of IoT from Smart Cities, environment, metering, asset management, manufacturing, health and transport. You can get a 20% discount using this code SPEAKRSIOT. Book online at IoT Impact Registration.
The MyBusiness Awards are held annually. They are Australian National awards for businesses and individuals. This year, Successful Endeavours have been selected as a finalist for Information & Communications Technology (ICT) Business of the Year.
You will probably have heard that students have been holding Global Climate Strike protests because they are concerned about the future of the world, a world they will be responsible for one day, and don’t believe the current leaders are taking the threat of Climate Change and Global Warming seriously.
This is a risk to every area of human activity and the Plan B approach of moving to Mars is not a viable option anytime soon. So looking after the planet we already have should be the primary approach to take.
So when I heard that the campaign had extended to business I decided we would get involved. So this coming Friday 20th September 2019 Successful Endeavours will be getting involved. Below is the letter I sent to our staff and our key industry and government contacts.
Climate Strike Open Letter
Yes you can make a difference
you are receiving this because we are currently either doing a project for you, you are a core supplier to our business, we are part of a collective of some kind or you are within our sphere of influence and I thought you would be interested to know about this.
You will be aware that the earth is a precious resource without a replacement and so ignoring evidence that we need to be treating it much better for the sake of everyone, including those not born yet, is not a responsible attitude. So that needs to change.
Successful Endeavours will only work on projects that we believe are making the world a better place. When we became aware that the Schools Strike for Climate initiative had broadened to encompass businesses as a Climate Strike we hopped on board. So on Friday 20th of September we will be supporting the Climate Strike.
Step 1 is that we will not make any appointments with suppliers or clients for that day. Step 2 is to look at whether we can support a local event in Casey Step 3 is to send some people to the event in the Melbourne CBD if we can’t get a local event going
Regardless of how far we can take this, I wanted you to know That we are doing this and why. You can see us in the supporter section on notbusinessasusual.com.au. If you also want to get involved, and I recommend you do look at what you can do, then you can sign up at notbusinessasusual.com.au or schoolstrike4climate.com/sept20 . Have a think about what you can do first because they will also want to know that.
I will also be posting an update via our blog at http://blog.successful.com.au/ so if you want to see that then please sign up there. Either way I won’t be sending out another mass email.

Climate Strike Next Steps
It looks like there will be some local activity we can do in the City of Casey to coincide with the Melbourne event so we will be also getting involved in that. And if you find you can’t book a meeting with us for this Friday, then you will now know why.
I’m fond of our planet and I would like my grandchildren and great grandchildren to be able to also enjoy it at least as much as I have been able to. Together we can take steps to help make that possible.
