And we have had a record year developing new products intended for manufacture right here in Australia. This is the reason Successful Endeavours exists, to design new electronics based products intended for manufacture in Australia. So I’m very pleased to see this happening on a larger scale.

Casey Business Awards 2013

Casey Business Awards 2013

We found out in August that we were Casey Business Awards 2013 Finalists in 2 categories:

  • Business and Professional Services Award
  • Manufacturer of the Year

 

Tracey Curro

Tonight at the Casey Business Awards Gala Dinner our MC, Tracey Curro did an excellent job of running the night. And we were thoroughly entertained by Max Walker who told some of his story and left me with a very profound insight into success.

 The part of his presentation that resonated with me was the story about winning his first baggy green cap as he made the Australian Cricket Team. He went home, put the cap on and showed his Dad. His Dad asked for the cap and then put it on. And in that moment Max knew that his dad had believed in him and hoped for him long before he had been able to do it for himself.

Wow. This night might be about success for some businesses in winning their specific categories, but it was equally a win for everyone who believed in each of those business owners or operators long before they had won anything themselves.

Back to the awards process.

We won the Business and Professional Services Award 2013. We were pretty stoked about that.

The Manufacturer of the Year went to WasTech Engineering. Since we are primarily a service to Australian Electronics Manufacturers by designing new products for them, I have been very pleased to even be a finalist in this category. We do manufacture products but never in competition with other local manufacturers.

It was also a great night for Wastech Engineering who ultimately took out Casey Business of the Year 2013. So well done. And this is the second year running that a local manufacturer has won the award and 3 of the 4 years were manufacturing related with us winning Casey Business of the Year 2010.

But it didn’t stop there as the judges handed out some additional awards. I’m pleased to announce that we also received the Casey Business Award 2013 for Innovation.

This is the final year of the Casey Business Awards. Next year they are combining with the Shire of Cardinia to hold the combined Casey Cardinia Business Awards. We will also be involved in that. The 2 councils working together should prove to be a tremendous success. I’m certainly looking forward to it.

And at the end of the night we got a shot with Max Walker. He really is a legend.

The official announcement was made by the City of Casey on 21 August as Monash University Berwick Campus and also on the City of Casey website in their press release Casey Business Awards Finalists 2013. It was also covered by the Star News Group in their article Shortlist for Top Spot.

There will be a Gala Dinner to announce the winners on 17 October 2013 at Arthur Wren Hall in Hampton Park.

This past 4 years we have felt very supported by the Casey Economic Development Department who are doing an outstanding job of promoting and supporting local businesses. And it helps that we have been recipients for several awards including Casey Business of the Year in 2010 and current hold the Casey Business and Professional Services Award for 2012.

City Of Casey

City Of Casey

This is the final year for the City of Casey holding these awards. As of 2014 the Shire of Cardinia and the City of Casey will hold joint business awards. So one way or another, this is the end of an era.

It is also the beginning of another very exciting era with the councils working together to build the economy across their whole region. I’m convinced that a prosperous future requires this level of collaboration and not just individual councils working on their own and I congratulate both councils for choosing to work together to achieve just that, greater prosperity together than they can achieve individually.
