25 Years Of Creating Great Leaders

After 25 challenging and exciting years in business, I look back, so proud of what we have achieved as a team, right across Australia.

On 9th April 1993 I set out to Create Great Leaders across Australia, and after 25 years that is still my goal.

I know that it is very trendy to talk about understanding your ‘WHY’, but I have to say that this has been the driving force that has kept us all going and growing over the whole 25 years. The way you do things may change, but the reason you do them should remain steadfast.

I am very blessed to have a supportive family and in fact all four of my children have played a significant role in the business. Both of my daughters are still actively involved at Proteus, while my two sons have moved on to exciting careers in both design and marketing and the Fire Brigade.

I would also like to thank Richard Dore who has been with me now for 20 years. His input has been invaluable to the success of our business and I will always be grateful for the role he has played in building the business with me.

Also, to the rest of the Proteus team, many of whom have been with us between five and eleven years,  thank you!

But most of all I would like to thank you, the clients, who have allowed us to play a role in your lives and your businesses. With many of you it has been more than a business relationship, we have actually created a tribe of people who are also dedicated to improving leadership in this country.   

I cannot begin to share the many life-changing testimonials that we have received over the 25 years, but what l do know is that together we have created a better world and have indeed had the privilege of being the catalyst for major decisions being made in the lives of many leaders across our nation.

The exciting thing for me is that we have only just begun!

2018 has already seen massive growth as we continue to expand our team across Australia. And we are more excited than ever about the possibility of creating even more Great Leaders.

So, thank you for your support over these 25 years and remember:

“If INTEGRITY is the foundation you build your life on, then you will always be successful, no matter what the world throws at you.” – Des Penny
