Exceptional Magazine : 2013 Exceptional Magazine
Hello Cover photography: idGroup The 2013 issue of Exceptional is a testament to Australia's amazing entrepreneurial talent. Again, in 2012 our participants were outstanding, each contributing signifcantly to the social and economic wellbeing of our nation. They seized opportunities, transformed their industries and, in the case of our overall 2012 winner, pioneered a new one. Celebrating entrepreneurs like our 2012 Australian Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year®, Anthony Podesta, is what our program is all about: recognising those people who have the courage to pursue their dreams. Those who identify opportunities, take calculated risks and build multi-million dollar businesses from scratch. Participating in Entrepreneur Of The Year is about more than winning a trophy. The connections made through the program are often the most valued beneft for our participants. Our 1,200-strong alumni are a powerful network and we encourage all our participants to keep in touch through our regular communications and events in each region. Our global events are another highlight. In fact, it's the global nature of our program that sets it apart from other awards. In June 2013, Anthony Podesta will travel to Monte Carlo to vie for the title of World Entrepreneur Of The Year. We wish him the very best as he competes with the world's top entrepreneurial talent in this prestigious competition. I hope you will enjoy reading this edition of Exceptional, in which we profle our fnalists of 2012 and share insights into their entrepreneurial journeys. Ernst & Young is proud to have founded Entrepreneur Of The Year. As we move into our 13th year of the program in Australia, we look forward to unearthing more of Australia's great entrepreneurial talent. Here's to a successful 2013.
