This week, Johanna and I attended the 2023 Scenic Rim Business Excellence Awards and Gala Dinner at The Centre in Beaudesert.
The evening unfolded as a splendid showcase, uniting businesses from across the Scenic Rim and illuminating business excellence across various industry categories.
Steering the event were the Scenic Rim's esteemed Mayor Greg Christensen, Economic Development Officer Cameron Thomas and his adept team, with the graceful guidance of 4BC Radio Host Sofie Formica as Master of Ceremonies.
Our table was graced with the presence of Greg and Denise Christensen, Sofie Formica, Oliver Pring, Greg Schossow, Martin Gray and Jill Gray and Jonathan Krause, all of whom added a delightful presence to the evening.
This year, I was honoured to serve as a judge for the awards in seven award categories:
