A Few words from DJ… "WOW! What an absolute honour, I am totally stoked by this announcement, this certificate, recognition and accolade is not just for me though its also for my amazing partner in crime Steve (Mr Kombi Celebrations), who without him by my side I wouldn't of achieved this... plus not to mention my family and fabulous crew :). The submission process for this award was actually a great learning curve to go on and encouraged us both to take a step back from our business and look at our business model and strategy and view aspects that could be improved, changed or be continued.
It's very fair to say that not one nominee in this prestigious category is the same, we all have different personalities, skills and qualities that complement us in what we do for our own businesses that is uniquely ours. When we started Kombi Celebrations in 2012, with only a handful of kombi vendors in operation in NSW we went into this knowing the hard work it would entail, and the special qualities required that would lead us to a road of success and the ability to conquer those challenges that are presented to us in owning our own business.
We are both testament to say that you can take a dream and turn it into a reality. The motivation behind the creation of Kombi Celebrations back in 2012 was born purely from our love of kombi’s and the opportunity to share our iconic, vintage vehicles with many people for various occasions, whom which may of wished at one point in life to own one for themselves. So in using my marketing, online and event management expertise and along with Steve's love and obsession of Kombi's and a 10 year career in hospitality, we felt that combining our skills would allow us to create a fun, niche event transport business and at the same time allow us to juggle and balance a very busy family life with my two boys Harry (10) and Baby beau (6 months) and puppy dog Duke. It’s true what they say.
"Find a job you love and you'll never work a day in your life".
