Great to see so many Calxa Friends being awarded for their efforts.
It was no surprise to see Calxa customers Delphis Australia taking out some well-deserved accolades at the recent inaugural Central Coast Aged Care and Disability Achievements Awards. Their services to the community were acknowledged in a number of areas. Barbaranne Chalmers won Home Care Employee of the Year whilst Shirley Peck was selected Volunteer of the Year. Delphis Australia’s Memory Lane Project took out a special commendation for innovation (photos here).
What makes these awards special is that nominations are sought not just from within organisations but from the care recipients and their families. This alone magnifies the tribute in such a ‘people-centric’ industry and makes these awards count. Operations Manager, Majenta Ritchie from SEASONS Network (the organisers) explains, “All nominees are finding innovative ways to improve the lives of their clients and share a common steadfast commitment to providing the highest quality of care.”.
Working closely with Calxa Accredited Partner Michael Graham from Cutcher & Neale helps keeping the back-end engines oiled so the front-end services can be delivered at their best. Well done the team at Delphis.

The CEO Magazine managed to single out some other great talent. Close to home for Calxa, we were excited to hear of Tim Reed, MYOB CEO, being selected IT Executive of the Year with Simon Raik-Allen, MYOB’s Chief Technical Advisor, taking out runner up in the CIO category.

Also great to see the disability sector being acknowledged with Anne Bryce, CEO of Achieve Australia, acknowledged as Not for Profit Executive of the Year.
