Makaela Bowman was one of the talented staff members nominated as Employee of the Year at the Daroo Business Awards earlier this month. Makaela, who works at the Cargo Store, says it was a lovely surprise to receive a Highly Commended certificate at the ceremony. “There’s a lot of goodwill and support within these communities who like to help people who try their hardest,” she says “I’m very grateful to Cath (owner) for letting me work here during my gap year, it’s a wonderful, supportive environment.” Makaela is off to Sydney University next year to study psychology. Another nominee was Danielle Jenkins who works at Adloyalty. “Caddie and Robyn nominated me and it was really nice to be recognised for my hard work” says Dani. “I’ve been working at Adloyalty for two years and I love it.” We wish all the nominees including the winner of the award Blake Wilson all the best in their futures in business.
