Lord Mayor’s Commendation
I was fortunate enough to recently be awarded a Lord Mayor’s Commendation for 2015. These awards began in 2005 and they acknowledge and celebrate the long-term commitment of independent small business proprietors in the City of Melbourne. Those eligible for the awards are current proprietors of independent small businesses (fewer than 20 employees equivalent full-time) that have operated continuously within the City of Melbourne for at least 10 years.
While personally it is nice to receive this type of award, I really feel that this is more of an honour for the practice and, as such, it could not have been achieved without the wonderful efforts of all my staff – both the optometrists and support staff. I really am very proud of the care and service we provide to our patients and I suspect that our patients feel the same way as reflected in the way the practice has grown substantially since it commenced in early 1998.
I also want to take the opportunity to thank our loyal patients for the continued support over the past 17 years.
