John and Linda Stanley’s business last night was awarded The Belmont Small Business Awards 2012 Export Award.
This award goes to the small business in Western Australia in recognition of their contribution to exporting.
John and Linda’s two person business is unique in that it is not products they sell to overseas markets, rather they sell conference speaking, consultancy and training. This is the second time John Stanley Associates have won the award, the first time was in 2010.
“People at the award asked us what products we sell, and I point to John and say ‘John’” said Linda. John has just returned from South Africa where he presented conferences and is about to head to Paris, where he will host the European garden centre awards.
John Stanley Associates is based in Western Australia and specialises in providing its services mainly to retailers and the retail industry. In recent months John has spoken at the International Shopping Centre Conference in Istanbul as well as at the Hangzhou Conference in China.
2013 is already looking to be another busy year with bookings already for Botswana, China, Japan, USA, Canada, UK, Ireland, Italy, France, Dubai, South Africa, Czech and Malaysia.
