Entrepreneur of the Year 2016 FINALIST  |  Telstra Business Women’s Awards

Friday night was a celebration of Queensland’s leading Business Women, and I was incredibly honoured to be standing amongst them.  I never believed that this was a possibility, and after hearing from the awards organisers that they had received a record number of applications for the Entrepreneur category, I was even more amazed that I had made it to the final 3 selected for Queensland.

You now know how much space you need and your brand position, now where is that ideal space located? This is the perfect opportunity to set your business up for greatness and that means you have the opportunity to consider where your business would be most productive.

You’re busting at the seams, and you need to look for a new office space to house your growing business. As you’ve grown, you may have found your business model has evolved and your strategy is more focused.   The location you’ve been calling home just doesn’t fulfill all the needs of your vision, you not only need to move offices, you need a change of scenery.
