The Hunter Business Awards was once but an ambition for us as an organisation. This year, it became a reality. Looking back to the Business gala awards night still excites me and it probably will for the few months (or even years!) to come.
Being awarded as the Outstanding Young Entrepreneur of the year has so far been one of the biggest honours and milestones both for me and Ignite Alliance. More so for the company because I couldn’t have done it without this amazing team of people who make what I do so much more powerful.
We didn’t think it could get better than this at least for the year. In early September, we got an invitation to become a part of the Hunter First and we were ecstatic!
Hunter First business membership is a highly exclusive club of successful businesses and world changers who are out to raise the bar of excellence for business in the Hunter Region. This amazing community has been making waves in the different business sectors for decades to say the least, and even non-business sectors. We’ve recently been given the privilege by being a member!
Value Begets Value
Reflecting on yet another amazing win for Ignite Alliance, a thought just came to me- “What have we done to get to the level that Ignite Alliance is at now and how can I help businesses do the same?”
At the heart of Ignite Alliance’s “why” is a strong desire to help businesses reach their goals. We don’t want business-owners, executives and entrepreneurs to just be busy. We want them to be successful. It just so happens that the way we do this is by assisting in grant applications, full suite of finance team services and consulting for companies of varying sizes in the areas of finance, business growth, technology and marketing.
But I’ve come to realise that that’s one of the major factors why Ignite Alliance has grown tremendously in the past few years. It’s because we seek only to provide value to our clients and to the community. Thus, in return we have been recognised and given value as well.
Impact Others and You Will Succeed
My ultimate goal is to positively impact one billion people in the next ten years. Not because I want the recognition. The goal is impact. The awards are an added bonus. The reason why recognition and awards bring joy to my day is because it’s a reminder that we are on the right track.
We want to thank all the amazing people who have made these opportunities possible for us. We couldn’t have done it without the help of all the staff, partners and clients who have been a part of our journey.
Here’s to more impact and success achieved together!
