On Saturday night the BMO Business Centre was honoured to be awarded the Dalby Business of the Year and the Judges Choice winner of the Business and Professional Services Award.
When we started BMO 25 years ago, we would not have predicted that we’d grow to a leading Australian accounting firm, with 57 team members, a full range of business and financial advisory services in a modern business centre serving clients stretching across all Australian states. By staying true to our vision and our values, and remaining committed to our local community, we have achieved more than we ever dreamed.
Being recognised as Business of the Year for a third time* was an incredibly proud moment. However, for us, it’s never been about being the biggest or the best. Our focus has always been about putting people first. Listening to our clients and our team, and being ‘with you every step of the way’.
We would like to offer thanks and encouragement to the Dalby Chamber of Commerce and BEA Sponsors for putting on a great awards program and dinner. Having personal visits from the judges this year certainly gave businesses the chance to showcase what they do rather than just write it down. We always appreciate when the BEA comes around as it forces us to do an annual review of our business. It’s helps us track where we are making progress and identify where we need to improve.
One our proudest moments last Saturday night was seeing so many of our clients named as finalists and winners of their own industry categories. We’d particularly like to congratulate Adam Luck Electrical who picked up the Small Business of the Year Award. In many ways, seeing our clients excel is more exciting than winning awards ourselves, as we like to think we have played a small part in helping them achieve their success.
We would like to offer our heartfelt thanks to:
Earlier this year, we declared 2015 – our 25th year – our ‘Year of Celebration’ and the Business of the Year award has really put the icing on the cake. The 2015 awards night was truly a celebration of what it means to be a part of the vibrant Dalby Business community and we only hope this marks the start of a bigger and brighter future for our region.
BMO Partners Peter, Adrian, Kelvin, Michelle, David, Mal and Shane.
