Sandra’s done it again . . . our brilliant Business Solutions Coach proved herself to be the mentoring guru when her client Beacon Dog Training won the 2019 BizCover NEIS-Change Award.
The NEIS Awards acknowledged new business owners, Australia-wide, who have completed the New Business Assistance with NEIS program in the past two years.
Owned and operated by Maddie and Tom Ross at Robina on the Gold Coast, Beacon Dog Training is a story of true courage, grit and determination. The business started after Tom suffered a severe spinal injury whilst on holidays and then his pooch Toby became a problem child.
As a T12 paraplegic, Tom realised that not all disabled people could work with their dogs the same way, so they approached Sarina Russo Entrepreneurs and graduated from the New Enterprise Incentive Scheme (NEIS) program.
Turn Your PASSION into a PROFITABLE Business!
The win makes it two victories from the past four years for Sandra after her clients Larrikin Puppets won in 2015. This is on top of wins by Chris Raine from Hello Sunday Morning (2011) and Graeme Caplen from Union Lane (2012) – both mentored by fellow Business Solutions Coach, India Suter.
“I am so thrilled for Maddie and Tom. The NEIS Award is a testament to the courage and passion they both have displayed since they started the NEIS journey in 2017,” Sandra said.
“Maddie and Tom worked tirelessly to build a business that now employs two staff and runs 19 classes every week for over 100 dogs.
“Using Maddie’s digital skills, they launched “That Dog Geek” – an online educational channel watched by thousands weekly and this, along with savvy marketing and key collaboration partners saw Beacon Dog Training take off.”
