Business Advisory South West and Peel officially opened its doors on Tuesday July 3 with a launch party at their head office at the Homemaker Centre, Bunbury.
More than 50 people attended the affair, where a welcome to country was given by Noongar Elder Gloria Dann.
The event was MC’d by Doug Green of ipCreative.
Lisa Legena from the Small Business Development Corporation said that she had been happy to announce IPS as the successful tenderer, as their innovative and creative approach to presenting business advisory services had impressed her.
IPS Director Kristal Kinsela, who travelled from Port Macquarie to attend the event, spoke to the crowd about how IPS had come from small beginnings to win the Business Advisory contract.
“This is a proud moment for us,” she said.
“Because of the challenges we’ve faced, we’re in a really great position to lead a service like this. We’ve got big goals at IPS, and soon you’ll see our signs up in other places too.”
Kristal introduced Business Advisory’s business partners, BHR Papalia, Southern Cross Austereo, Total Network Engineering (TNE) and ipCreative, before cutting the ribbon to the Business Advisory office with help from Ms Legena.
The event was sponsored by Capel Vale, Citygate, Lonsdale Party Hire and Amorish Catering.
