Classy end of year dinner!

 So we’re at the end of an exciting year for Cirillo Hooper & Company. We’re 18 months into the journey and we’ve had a lot of fun along the way since I last checked in on 30 June 2012. Here are some of my personal; highlights for the year that was 2012:

  • Kimberley: In April we added Kimberely Harrison to our team, initially in an administration role but is being promoted into an accounting role starting 2013
  • Jemma: We hired Jemma Schilling in a split decision in August knowing full well that she would be a super star, turns out we were right
  • Intern Program: In conjuction with all three universities we launched a internship to help develop up and coming accountants and business people, the program has been a huge success with Justin Gan, Ariel Chen, Waleed Zafar, Elouise Dukalskis and Mike Vo all successfully completing the pilot program
  • BBQ to Boardroom: Personally I was honoured to make it into this book highlighting the achievements of some of Adelaide’s most influential businessmen
  • Startup Weekend: Startup weekend piloted in March 2012, I loved it so much that I had to get involved for the second run in November 2012, it’s now a critical part of the entrepreneurial ecosystem in Adelaide
  • Client Success: The Lunch Bar won the Messenger Small Business Awards and DVE Business Solutions got into the finals of the CBA Business Business Booster Awards and the Telstra Business Awards
  • Anthill Awards: This year I made the finals for the Anthill 30Under30 Awards for the Top 30 Entrepreneurs Under 30 Years Old, at 25, here’s hoping I make the list in 2013
On that note I’d like to wish our clients, staff, readers and their families a safe and happy new year. See you all in 2013!
