PRBA May Breakfast Recap
Wednesday 13 May saw the first Premier Regional Business Awards Breakfast for the celebratory 25th year of the awards program. Over eighty guests joined us on what turned out to be the coldest day so far this year - and it is not even officially winter!
The Youth Enterprise Nominee for this event was Tom Cunningham. Tom is a recent graduate of Chisholm with an Advanced Diploma in Computer Systems Engineering and earned a 90% grade point average in his final year of studies. Tom worked extremely hard in his final year of study and would often put in extra hours on the hardware to expand his knowledge. Tom was selected as one of two students throughout Australia to work exclusively at the Cisco Live conference in March 2015. Thank you to Joe D'Amico from Chisholm for introducing Tom.
We then heard stories about two diverse food retailers in Dandenong - the Dandenong Pavilion and Young Uncles. The Dandenong Pavilion has been an institution in the area when it opened about ten years ago, and has since gone on to win multiple culinary awards. Young Uncles recently opened next door to Uncles Smallgoods and is a thriving local cafe - no thanks to the Council and DHS buildings across the road!
Finally, we were pleased to have John Bennie, CEO for the City of Greater Dandenong, speak to us about the current and future directions of the City of Greater Dandenong. The council has been a great advocator of business in Dandenong and it was great to hear what it is planning and how it is lobbying to further enhance the business opportunities in the area. A big thank you is extended to John Bennie for taking the time to be with us.
