Monday, 22 July 2013

19 June 2013

Congratulations to the 2013 winners of the Master Plumbers & Mechanical Services Association Gold Medal & Training Awards.  This year, fourteen winners, including secondary school students, pre-apprentices, apprentices and newly-graduated plumbers received awards for excellence in their academic studies and, in some cases, on-the-job excellence.

SPR achieved some excellent editorial coverage of the Awards across a range of local suburban and regional media, as well as online.  In particular, our advice to the Association on naming strategy meant that sponsors received an unprecedented number of mentions in the media compared with past events, delighting both client and sponsors.

If you're interested in how to achieve publicity for your awards event, just give us a call on 9391 4603 or 0413 119 673.  We're happy to help.


Mature-age plumbing apprentice Spiros Kanellos (front row, second from left), from Ormond, won this year's Andrew Letten Gold Medal Award, the highest honour bestowed on outstanding plumbing apprentices, at this year's Master Plumbers Gold Medal & Training Awards.  The award is given to the apprentice who has demonstrated a strong commitment to off-the-job studies and has successfully completed the registration exam.  It was presented by His Excellency the Honourable Alex Chernov AC QC, Governor of Victoria and Mr Shayne La Combre representing award sponsor, Plumbing Industry Climate Action Centre.  Mr Kanellos is pictured with the Lord Mayor The Right Honourable Robert Doyle, Governor Alex Chernov, Mr Scott Dowsett, President Master Plumbers, Speaker of the Legislative Assembly, the Honourable Ken Smith, and Mr Ken Gardner, Chief Executive Officer Master Plumbers and other winners.

Welcome to the Epilepsy Foundation of Victoria
Thursday, 18 December 2008

SPR is delighted to be working with the Epilepsy Foundation of Victoria to assist the organisation to raise awareness of its wonderful activities that support and assist people living with epilepsy, and to help to overcome the social stigma associated with epilepsy.  

It is estimated that up to 4 percent of Australians will have epilepsy during their lifetime and more than one percent of Australians currently have active epilepsy.  Epilepsy was ranked in the top five avoidable causes of death in young people (aged 5-29) as stated in the Victorian Government's new report Avoidable Mortality in Victoria - Trends between 1997 and 2003.  When considering that our ageing population also means more and more older citizens will experience a seizure in their lifetime, one realises that this is a significant health issue that will affect many more Australians in the future.
