The Manningham Business Excellence Awards were established this year to provide a platform for local businesses to showcase themselves, highlight their strengths and celebrate the points of difference that make them stand out from the crowd in an increasingly competitive environment.

Sponsor of the ‘Small Business of the Year Award’, business coach Stefan Kazakis, congratulated all businesses who applied. “Being named as a finalist and ultimately a winner is a reflection of the determination of someone who works hard to achieve their goals. As we all know, working in small business is tough,” Stefan said. “[MIA Consulting Services has] worked hard and has gone above and beyond what’s required to confirm that their customers are getting exactly what they want.”

MIA Consulting services was also a finalist in the ‘Innovation’ category of the Business Excellence Awards. “After such a busy and rewarding year, it’s wonderful to receive this recognition and take the time to celebrate our achievements,” Deirdre said. “We thank all our partners and clients for their support this year and look forward to doing great things in 2014.”
