2012 Telstra Business Woman’s Awards




An update for those that don’t follow us on facebook or twitter.  Whilst I am not the “winner” of the category (White Pages Community and Government Award) I was a finalist in, I very much feel like a winner for just being nominated.  It wasn’t until I got to the event that I really realised what a BIG DEAL these awards really are. ( Note to self…..do more homework ).

Telstra just sent me through some of the messages of support that people had sent through – some of these messages were looped on a big screen throughout the event.  (Interestingly only two of the finalists had messages up there) and here they are, because they are nice, and I want to acknowledge some of the many people who are so supportive of me….

P.Dodd is ‘da Bomb!!’ She is a thinker and a creator, a mentor, a motivator, a champion of the cause.  This chick is someone who makes things happen. Big LOVE.  – Lix Walker-Speers
