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….
