In 2022 doing a 12-week contract from August 2021with Victorian business Vtackle, based in Derrimut. Now into week 62 still going and today! Applying what I had learnt in business Accelerators for development and scale up methods. Adding my skills in digital sales and promotion to established business delivered results. It is a team effort Vince Todarello had built a business that was resilient, flexible and innovative, giving me so many products, services and opportunities to develop and refine. It has been a totally absorbing effort since August 2021 to get Vtackle’s trade and national expansion set up. As a 2x finalist myself it was obvious we had reached possible Finalist level by June 2022.
Making changes for efficiency has improved the company and employees experience. Increasing trade during 3 months of Victoria’s covid lock down in 2021. Not forgetting the most important people, Vtackle customers who are increasing every day. Delivering a sales increase of 26%. Silver is for celebrating a 25th anniversary and I got them up as a Finalist in the 2022 Australian Small Business Champions Award – Specialized Retail. On September 3rd in Sydney, we were announced the winners, to win in an open category with 27 finalists, including past winners was outstanding. Winners never quit, third year as a finalist won the chocolates and they taste good.
