Building an award winning business with Kate Newman
Kate Newman knows what it takes to build an award winning business.
In 15 years of business, Kate and her husband Todd have won over 30 awards with their Central Victorian building company Todd Newman Builders.
But there is one award that Kate savours the most ~ the prestigious Regional Women’s Business Award presented to her last year at the Bendigo Business Excellence Awards.
As a former registered nurse, Kate has worked extremely hard to learn a line of work that she knew nothing about and has risen to the challenge of understanding the complexities of an ever changing industry.
Kate’s role in the business was originally just a sideline to her own nursing career but over time the more she learnt about the building industry and small business, the more passion she had for the job.
Kate shares with us what it takes to become an award winning business, advice on building a team and surrounding yourself with the right people, recognising transferable skills, the importance of investing in personal development and so much more.
