RDA Orana Congratulates Excellence in Innovation Finalists

Regional Development Australia Orana Chair, John Walkom, was proud to see such a strong list of regional businesses vying for the Excellence in Innovation Award at this year’s Rhinos.

“Innovation is vitally important to driving excellence in business and overall growth in the economy. I believe that innovation lies at the heart of regional businesses, as we have to work creatively within what can sometimes be a very challenging and ambiguous economic environment.”

“That being said, there is huge confidence in the region’s economy, and what better place to celebrate that than at the 20th year of the Dubbo Rhino Awards.”

“RDA Orana are very proud to sponsor this award. Innovation is core to what we do and what we see as important to the region’s growth. Whether it’s implementing innovative process, introducing new products or services or seeking out new opportunities to diversify the economic base of the region, innovation is something that all businesses, and the region as a whole, should strive to.”

“Over the next year RDA Orana will be working hard to measure and benchmark some of the markers of innovation, such as the region’s research partnerships and how businesses work collaboratively. Once we know where we stand against some of our neighbours at home and abroad, we’ll be better able to promote those areas where we exceed, and focus on those areas that may need some improvement.”

The entire RDA Committee and Staff would like to congratulate the following businesses:

  • Regand Park Early Childhood Education Centre
  • Big Blue Digital
  • Custom Steel Frames
  • Kitchen & Renovation Concepts Dubbo
  • Western College
  • Zumba with Tracy Dubbo
