#SVDCTeam | Celebrating our ANZ GSBA 2017 Geelongpreneur of the Year Win

Sister Duo: Head of Digital Georgette & Founder and Head Photographer Stevie van der Chys

Excerpt from Circus Media Press Release:

Local photographer Stevie van der Chys has taken out the highly coveted Geelongpreneur of the Year Award at last night’s Geelong Small Business Awards held at Simonds Stadium. Van der Chys, who began taking photographs as a way to heal following a lifetime of family domestic violence, touched event attendees with a heartfelt acceptance speech reducing many to tears.

“I am extremely honoured and proud to accept this award but it is not just for me; it is also for those around me who are inspired to follow their passion, chase their dreams and believe in themselves. “The calibre of the entrants for this award was phenomenal and I was thrilled just to be a finalist alongside them; but to actually win, it is just so humbling.”

Emma Isaacs, founder and global CEO of Business Chicks, sent her congratulations all the way from Los Angeles. “Stevie has always struck me as the type of person who’s completely committed to anything she applies herself to, and has a curiosity for people and for business that beguiles her years. “Stevie has been a member of Business Chicks for some years now and her ethics and values completely align with our organization – to support women and to give back, and she’s a model and inspiration to many. Congratulations Stevie.”
