My Learning Space was recognised as a Telstra Business Awards Finalist at the Brisbane Sofitel on Tuesday the 12th of July, 2011. The Telstra Business Awards have celebrated the achievements of Australia’s best small and medium businesses for 20 years.
The judging process itself proved to be a valuable experience for the business by providing a prime opportunity to reflect on its journey and achievements so far. My Learning Space is now part of the Telstra Business Awards Alumni network, an exclusive community designed for finalists and winners of the Telstra Business Awards. On the night, Chad Outten, Director of My Learning Space said:
As educators, we’ve always recognised the benefits of delivering cost-effective and flexible learning via the web. We’re fortunate that our business has come to fruition – and we make a living doing what we’re passionate about. Small is the new big and helps us to respond to market demands and offer personalised customer service.
