McCrindle Australian Small Business Champion Award Winner

Thursday, April 06, 2017

Australian Small Business Champion Award 

Over the weekend, we were honored to be announced as the winners of the 2017 Professional Services Small Business Award.

The Australian Small Business Champion Awards is a prestigious and comprehensive program that supports and recognises small businesses across Australia.

Offering a unique opportunity to highlight Australia's most outstanding small businesses, the awards seek to recognise the hard work that business owners contribute to the local community in generating employment for millions of Australians, as well as their contribution to the Australian economy.

Our Team Leader of Accounts, Geoff Brailey and his wife Krystol represented the McCrindle team at the black-tie gala dinner on Saturday 1st April 2017 at the Westin, where the winners were announced.

Industry award for our client, Filtered Media

We were also delighted to hear that our client Filtered Media recently won an industry award for the use of Insights in PR for the Dare to Dream Campaign we assisted with for the Financial Planning Association of Australia.

We were delighted to conduct this new research into Australia’s financial hopes and fears for the future. The visualised report, released in time for Financial Planning Week 2016, showed that one in two of us dream more about our future now than we did five years ago. View the full report here.
