2021 Finalists for the Hunter Business Awards

We are delighted to announce that we have been selected as a Finalist for the Hunter Business Awards 2021, in the Micro Business category … this news, off the back of winning the Lake Macquarie Business Awards, also for the Micro Business category and whilst in lock down is an absolute pleasure.

The Hunter Business Awards are Australia’s most prestigious Regional Business Awards and for more than 40 years, they have recognised and rewarded excellence, achievement and leadership by businesses and individuals in the Hunter region.

The Excellence in Micro Business Award recognises a business that has effectively driven growth and is able to demonstrate the specific strategies implemented to achieve business success and/or resilience.

Entrants are required to demonstrate their achievements over the past 12 months across the key area of business excellence.

This category is open to businesses with less than 5 employees at the time of entry, who have been trading for a continuous period of two years or more.

Win or lose, it is great to be recongnised by our Newcastle neighbours in such high esteem. Best of luck to all of the finalists.

Connecting Our Community

Caves Beach Connect

At psyborg® we are proud founders of the free community business group known as Caves Beach Connect, where we have developed an online search engine for the Caves Beach community, business owners and operators.

Caves Beach Connect is a place where the local person or the visitor can search for a product or service they require, buying local, utilising local skills and assisting in building a community where our children can enjoy quality future employment opportunities.

With over 140 businesses already listed, the website is used as a vehicle to encourage networking and mentoring, whilst generally helping to grow the area in a post-COVID world.

For us it’s about supporting locals who live in the area and who own or operate a business inside or outside of Caves Beach. For example we have a market research company that services a statewide audience, to a local teen that mows lawns. Caves Beach Connect is a way to connect these different worlds, generating greater opportunities locally.

Through Caves Beach Connect we are organising our ongoing events where we aim to get business owners to meet, network and collaborate. We recently had an amazing launch night, hosting over 60 guests where we were able to catch up with collegues and meet new business owners.

We are aiming to host an event every quarter which will be promoted through a digital marketing channels such as EDM, Social Media and the website.

Caves Connect Launch Night

Caves Connect Launch Night

Caves Connect Launch Night

All set and ready to Connect … in hindsight though when I started thinking about this concept at the beginning of the year I did not imagine we would have over 130 businesses already on the Caves Beach Connect website (with more coming out of the woodwork everyday) let alone that we’d be running a launch event with 80 guests registering within the first 7 days.

When I moved back to Caves I didn’t even think I could run a design business from here, and 12 years or so later I guess a lot can be said for the internet and social media in that it can give you the independence you need if you use it like the tool that it’s meant to be.

Plus it really goes to show that you need to back yourself and take risks now and then because you never really know until you try. And if you fail, (I have many times in different ventures) it’s ok because you take gold away every time which you would never ever get otherwise! And that gold becomes useful treasure in new situations moving forward.

I’m really looking forward to tomorrow night. I can’t wait to meet new people … having a laugh with new conversations … it’s going to be great and even if it isn’t I’ll be sure to take a little gold away from it.

This event will take place in Lake Macquarie.
