National Business Leader Award

Hello disturbers.

It is with great joy and humility that I advise you all that the Optimistic Disturber, this week at Star Casino in Sydney, was presented with the award for: Best Business Leader at the National MyBusiness/Action Coaching Awards.

I really am thrilled, especially when I know that getting disturbed enough to make change happen was one of the main reasons for receiving the award.

But you can’t win a Business Leader Award if you don’t have an amazing team around you. So, I thank my wonderful team for all of the ways that they support me, everyday.

So keep getting disturbed, it is the only way that we will continue to make positive change in our lives and in our businesses.

    Congratulations Des and the team at Proteus!

    Great to see the Optimistic Disturber win this award.

    Keep ‘disturbing’ me with the Optimistic Disturber. Your blog reminds me of the things that often disturb me – and how I can channel my energies into making a positive change for myself and others.

    Keep up the great work!

    Congratulations Des and team -although it does not suprise me at all. Every time I attend one of your breakfast series in Perth I leave thinking Wow! You always disturb me-in a good way of course!
    Keep up the great work!

    Congratulations Des.
    This is a well deserved award. You inspire me with your thoughts and your life values. Can’t help feeling that the work you do is much more than just a business to you and I think the same goes for Richard as well.
    I love the Optimistic Disturber blog and always smile by the time I finish reading it. I look forward to the next instalment.
    Thank you

      Hi Vicki, thanks so much for your kind words and you are right, both Richard and I consider what we do to be an absolute privilege and so it makes it a pleasure. We also meet amazing people everyday (including you), so thanks again.
