We are on the road this week visiting our amazing Central Highlands Business Excellence Awards finalists with the judges. I look forward to meeting some of our new businesses that have risen through the ranks with exceptional applications. The standard of applications continues to improve every year.

There are so many exciting initiatives available for businesses. As business owners, it’s our responsibility to ensure that we are up-to-date and continuously improving our practices. Webinars are a great way to tap into these opportunities without leaving your desk. Here’s a sample:
