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 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.

We are also pleased to announce that the Water Synergy Group Waterlink MESH networked pulse water meter reader is a finalist for the IoT Impact Innovation Award for 2019. So I’m particularly pleased for Water Synergy Group to see their partnership with us not only generating commercial sales but also technical recognition for the design of the IoT solution. Which is also a very Low Power Electronics, Made in Australia, Cellular Mobile Communications Gateway device.

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.

Climate Strike 2019

Not Business As Usual
Not Business As Usual

Climate Strike

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.

School Strike For Climate
School Strike For Climate – Greta Thunberg addressing the White House

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

Hi,

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.

Regards,

Ray Keefe
Managing Director
Successful Endeavours Pty Ltd


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.
