"The trouble with having an open mind, of course, is that people will insist on coming along and trying to put things in it."
Terry Pratchet, Diggers
BlueSky won an award at the 28th Belmont & Western Australia Small Business Awards 2021 last night!
We were a finalist in 2 categories; the Innovation award, and the Spirit of Australia award. While Spirit of Australia felt like a long shot, I was quietly confident of taking out the Innovation award (hence my attendance) - especially after the year we've had. So it felt really good to hear BlueSky's name announced as the winner for the Innovation category.
Simply being a finalist, I felt, was enough validation of all the hard work and sacrifices the team has put in. Winning the award, was just cherry on the cake!
I'm sure the other finalists have worked really hard as well, so congratulations to all the other finalists. And likewise, all the other category winners! But of course, my biggest congratulations goes out to my own team - this is all them, not me. They are the ones who have put in all the hard work.
So to all of my team at BlueSky, this is yours!
