National acclaim for Frankston business By Kate Sears

Pippa’s poppin’ the champagne after making the finals in two categories at the 2017 Optus My Business Awards.

The CEO of The Sports Injury Clinic in Frankston, Pippa Hanson was a finalist in the Health Business of the Year and Businesswoman of the Year categories at last month’s awards in Sydney.

“We were nominated by another local business, which made it an even more rewarding experience,” she said. “The health category was new this year too, so what a mark we’ve made.”

Pippa told Frankly Frankston the nominations were a great way for her to evaluate her business so she could take a step back to assess which areas were working so well and which could do with a little improvement.   “I like to enter competitions like these to also provide recognition to the staff so that they can see what they are a part of and what they’ve achieved.

“I shared the night with some extremely inspiring and successful businesses and met some fabulous people. It was inspiring to see how other businesses had branched themselves across Australia, whether online or in physical locations.”

This latest success has spurred Pippa and her team to endeavour to enter more competitions and challenge themselves yet again, and they have already set their sights on two next year. Previously, they’d only entered locally, but this national recognition has started something.

“I’d like to thank the team, everyone at the Clinic and of course all of our clients who put so much trust and faith in our team.
