Big Week

 

Last week was a huge week!  We had our Women in Business Darling Downs on Thursday and Heritage Bank Business Excellence Awards on Saturday.  

 

On Thursday night I made it through three stages of judging to get to Awardee of Merit, then surprisingly made it to the top three Darling Downs Women in Business of the Year.  Then on Saturday night we made it through to the finals and top three of the Professional and Business - Education and Training.  

 

If our staff are looking a bit tired... this is why!
