This is nothing more than smoke and mirrors.” Off the back of another year of strong growth, King Kong founder and head of growth, Sabri Suby, vows to take their digital marketing expertise to ‘the next level’, offering the agency’s services: SEO, CRO, PPC, web design, landing pages, paid social and much more to a potential 100 million+ small business ventures and entrepreneurs. “We have reached a stage where work coming in from overseas is tipping the scales with the overflow of clients we have here in Australia. We already have clients in each of these continents, and so an official, global status update for King Kong is overdue, and we are ready to hit the ground running,” said Sabri Suby, founder of King Kong. King Kong’s annual revenue growth trajectory has already surpassed the $20m target this year, and continues to climb, continuing their 2019 success on exceeding their annual target, despite the pandemic. “I refuse to prolong this ‘tough year’ pandemic narrative,” said Suby. “We can all accept that 2020 has served challenges like no other, but instead of wallowing we have looked for solutions and identified areas of the business that have seen exponential growth. Through adopting a solution-first mentality, King Kong has had consistent wins this year, including being voted one of the best places to work in Australia and New Zealand by the AFR. “I act with the same small business mentality as all of my clients. Sink or swim. Every business, large or small, will face this decision at some point, but it is up to the leaders to decide on which way they navigate it.” King Kong started as a $50 venture from Sabri Suby’s bedroom seven years ago, but has since been valued at $50 million ahead of international rollout. The US alone is home to an estimated 60 million small businesses, a number which dwarfs the estimated 2 million here in Australia. The US has already proven to be a rich growth opportunity for King Kong. Earlier in his career, and after establishing proven methods of customer acquisition, Sabri recognised the growth opportunities available to every business or entrepreneur within the digital marketing landscape, but he also recognised that not all of these enterprises can afford agency fees. In a bid to combat this and make success accessible to all, he penned his first ‘how to’ book, Sell Like Crazy, in 2019. Coined a ‘hand-held agency’ by industry leaders, the book went viral and became an Amazon bestseller on the first day of launch and has continued to be a hit to anyone obsessed with business growth. The King Kong roster currently includes customers in 135 countries across the globe, an impressive number that continues to climb. Between the agency's roster of clients and students, King Kong has an impressive 100k+ customer database, but the company's founder insists they’re “only just getting started”. COVID-19 has accelerated Australia’s digital marketing ability and interest, creating a petri-dish of opportunity for businesses to generate awareness of their products and services on a much larger scale, thus contributing to the success of the business and accelerating it forward to expand on a global scale. Sabri Suby says, “Social distancing and lockdowns across the country have further advanced Australians’ consumption of digital products, allowing the online advertising market to increase its share of advertising revenues. “COVID-19 has accelerated the evolution of media consumption, pulling forward digital disruption that would have occurred in future years. The benefit of this accelerated adoption has provided armour for the industry in a soft advertising market. King Kong has confirmed plans to significantly invest in ‘aggressively marketing’ to each country, using the same proven techniques that have resulted in the agency’s rapid growth to date. “Digital advertising has already surpassed TV as the number one advertising channel. And now, 2020’s Lockdowns, social distancing and increased digital consumption has poured gasoline on an already blazing fire. It’s very exciting times ahead.” Sabri Suby, founder and head of growth, King Kong Outside of the digital marketing world, Australians are renowned for their no-frills honesty and direct approach, an attribute that Sabri has embedded into King Kong’s brand values via his bold guarantees. Since launching his business, Sabri has fought to combat fake metrics, otherwise known as ‘vanity metrics’, and has encouraged his clients to look beyond clicks and likes as quantifiable measures of success. Instead, he decided to shake-up the industry to become the first agency to offer ROI and a guaranteed results ‘or don’t pay us’ offering. He says, “With a service like digital marketing being so measurable, I just couldn’t understand why agencies were hiding behind vanity metrics like impressions and click-through rates. I decided it was time to shake the trees and call out the digital cowboys by starting the first full-service digital agency in Australia that focused on guaranteed results - which was naturally popular with clients.” Sabri said he will be adopting the same method overseas and that he plans to “send digital marketing agencies that hide behind ad fraud and vanity metrics running scared” as he brings this guaranteed results and ROI focus to the rest of the world. It appears that Australian businesses are not the only fan of King Kong’s ROI business model. As news of guaranteed results has organically spread overseas, businesses in the US, the UK, NZ and Canada also appear ready to ‘Sell Like Crazy’, and ready to jump on King Kong’s bandwagon of guaranteed results and growth.

JESI is achieving huge growth since Series A funding of $4.5 million. 2021-05-13T04:32:07Z jesi-is-achieving-huge-growth-since-series-a-funding-of-4-5-million In October 2020, JESI received a multi-million-dollar fund injection from Microsoft aligned VC firm, Future Now Capital Management. This investment has allowed JESI’s team to grow from 8 to 23 and will continue to grow over the next 6 months.

JESI enables organisations to keep track of remote workers who travel frequently or work in environments with heightened risks.

It is essential that organisations provide a ‘duty-of-care’ of their workforce whether they are working remote, on-site or at home. JESI CEO Joe Hoolahan said, “The pandemic has brought to the fore the need for enterprises to protect their workers as they work remotely while ensuring they remain connected.

She said the financial and health implications for rural and regional communities was enormous and they were now hopeful the Government would continue to monitor the crisis and introduce further measures as the need arose, with the association and NSW Farmers continuing their advocacy on behalf of these communities. A media release on the issue is attached and below, along with an image of Danica Leys. For further information or interview requests, please don't hesitate to get in touch. Kind regards, Kylie Galbraith Seftons Tamworth NSW 2340 Ph. 0411 480 208 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ MEDIA RELEASE CWA of NSW welcomes government support for mice plague but warns crisis far from over As the devastating mice plague continues to ravage large areas of western NSW, the Country Women’s Association (CWA) of NSW has welcomed the assistance package announced by the NSW Government this morning. The NSW Government has announced a $50 million support package, which includes free of charge grain treatment for farmers and rebates for small businesses and households. CWA of NSW CEO Danica Leys said it was good news for affected farmers and communities, who have been dealing with the financial and health impacts of the catastrophe for more than six months, and hoped the NSW Government would continue to monitor what was an evolving situation. “We were hopeful after our meeting with the Agriculture Minister on Monday that they would respond to our calls, and those of the NSW Farmers’ Association, for urgent action on this crisis, and the measures they have announced today do address some of the issues around the high costs to farmers in trying to control the mice in and around their properties, and to small businesses and households in affected towns,” she said. “After enduring drought, fires and COVID-19, these areas now have a plague to contend with and they’ve been doing it on their own for months. Along with crop, fodder and machinery losses, town businesses have had suffered stock losses and damage, and then they have to deal with the mice invading their homes and impacting their health, both physical and mental. “This assistance package will provide some relief, and lets these communities know that the NSW Government have acknowledged their plight. We are now hopeful the Government will continue to monitor the crisis and be able to act with further measures as the need arises, and our association and NSW Farmers will continue our advocacy on behalf of these communities for as long as it takes.” NSW Farmers’ Association President James Jackson said the acknowledgement by the NSW Government of the enormous impact of the plague on rural and regional NSW communities was welcome, with costs of baiting running into the millions of dollars. “A recent survey we did on this issue emphasised just how much stress this has been placing on farmers and other small businesses as they try to control the mice and the damage they’re doing, so the assistance announced by the NSW Government today is welcome,” he said. “We look forward to further discussions with the Agriculture Minister on these measures and how they’re going to be implemented, but a timely and efficient rollout is essential, especially with winter planting now underway.” Rethinking Risk Management: Innovative Strategies for Navigating the Post-COVID New Normal 2021-05-13T03:12:14Z rethinking-risk-management-innovative-strategies-for-navigating-the-post-covid-new-normal Gregory M. Carroll’s newly released “Mastering 21st Century Enterprise Risk Management – 2nd Edition” calls for the ditching of existing risk practices which have led to major C-Level disillusionment with Enterprise Risk Management (ERM). The book looks at past failures of risk management citing case studies including Volkswagen, Qantas, and Ford Australia. Citing events like Brexit, Trump and the COVID pandemic, it firmly points the finger at a “box-ticking” approach to corporate governance as the cause of their poor handling. Artificial Intelligence (AI) based technologies will affect nearly all facets of business. It is critical that businesses put in place good monitoring and change management systems to navigate this post-COVID new normal. Carroll believes ERM is the best tool to handle market volatility and disruption, if done correctly. He contends “risk management is not about predicting the future but understanding how events will affect your plans and objectives.” The book then moves on to propose ways to: •                  Avoid the traps and pitfalls common in ERM. •                  Capitalize on ESG risks as market differentiator. •                  Make executives the drivers of GRC projects, not victims. •                  Link risk to strategy to manage the uncertainty in strategic objectives. •                  Combine the best of ISO 31000 and COSO ERM revisions. •                  Transform ERM from an overhead to a driver of growth. •                  Learn risk best practices of Bayesian modelling, strategic vs risk-based thinking, horizon scanning for threat management and effectively aggregating risk. •                  And prepare for the future of ERM – AI-based risk management.

Carroll has a graduate degree in Operations Research from Swinburne University, a certificate in Machine Learning from Stanford University and in Data Science from the University of Michigan. He has over thirty years’ experience in Enterprise Risk Management, IT and Artificial Intelligence systems in mission critical environments like the Dept of Defence and Victorian Infectious Disease Reference Laboratories.

The report discusses the key points of the new federal budget, and what it means for consumers and businesses in Australia. SMEs and consumers are clear winners in this new budget, which focusses heavily on simplifying deductions and supporting industries hit hardest by COVID. Davide Costanzo, Chairman of the Moore Australia Tax Committee commented: “It is great to see the simplification and extension of a number of measures. We look forward to these being implemented in due course. Many businesses and people don’t make the most of the grants and deductions available to them. We feel this budget is geared to supporting those people, taking a step forward to simplifying tax time.” CONSUMERS: Consumers come out strong with this budget, due to a myriad of changes to Super and Personal Taxation. These are all documented in our report. Moore Australia is pleased to see a modernisation of tax residency rules, which often causes confusion for investors, citizens and residents who are “globally mobile”. Although it was not mentioned when the changes will come into effect, it will greatly simplify the previously detailed analysis required to determine whether an individual is resident for tax purposes. BUSINESSES: (A full list of changes and opinions is available in our report)The budget lists a number of changes to businesses, a key change being amendments to the way in which tax payers assess the effective life of certain intangible assets and the extension of the temporary full expensing provisions. Although Moore Australia welcomes these changes, we feel they could have gone further. Davide Costanzo comments: “Currently, most taxpayers are afforded a choice to opt-in and opt-out of the full expensing provisions on an asset by asset basis. However, many small business taxpayers who use the simplified depreciation rules (i.e. small business pool) do not have access to the choice and may be disadvantaged by these provisions. It seems the Government has not “fixed” this issue for affected small business taxpayers who will be required to claim a full deduction on their eligible assets including the full value of their small business pool balance at the end of each year whilst these provisions are in place.”The budget further offers reprieve for certain SMEs and entrepreneurs. Davide Costanzo commented: “The ATO has significant powers in relation to debt collection, including issuing garnishee notices to taxpayers, which can have a crippling impact on businesses. These changes are a positive step to address the imbalance and give businesses momentary respite whilst dealing with the ATO dispute as the AAT will be able to pause the debt recovery actions until the dispute has been resolved by the AAT. By dealing with these matters within the AAT, small businesses will have a more economical option to dispute ATO debts.”Following the insecurities of the past year, the budget offers support to individuals and businesses who will need it the most, driving consumer and investor confidence, whilst supporting economic growth. -- Ends--Notes to Editors:Moore Australia has expert spokes people available, across the country to support members of the media with any questions regarding the budget.

Launches To Push Boundaries Of Women Leadership Globally — Through Sustainable Change 2021-05-12T08:03:37Z mcdonald-inc-launches-to-push-boundaries-of-women-leadership-globally-through-sustainable-change An emerging organisation with a purposeful mission to ambitiously set about the business of getting women back into work, leadership positions, and entrepreneurship. Leading 1 million women with the courage to step in, step up, and start up.     Barriers to entry in male-dominated fields have reached unprecedented high levels to the detriment of women in the past. At present, the positive movement for female representation in leadership positions, entrepreneurship, and in the workplace gathering momentum comes as a welcome relief. But while this cultural progress may signal a paradigm shift, it is of little or no significance without societal frameworks to give expression to this progressive wave that is catching up with modern societies.    McDonald Inc. is one of such societal frameworks innovated to champion the cause for women by paving ways for women inclusion in male-dominated spaces, through empowerment and education. Women who find themselves in these positions in their careers and would love to transition seamlessly into entrepreneurship and become business owners and founders are given all the enlightenment they need.  This is made possible through the Executive Pivot program under the auspices of McDonald Inc.   “The inception of this organisation could not have come sooner given the purposeful and meaningful impact that our operations are bound to foster for potential women leaders,” said CEO and Founder of McDonald Inc., Sonia McDonald. “By harnessing the power of innovative thinking and approaches driven by entrepreneurial insight, savvy and altruistic concern for women’s welfare, all major stakeholders including us, the people we work with, and young and emerging leaders are unto a seismic shift in the world of women globally.”   Unwaveringly devoted to helping women achieve that good-to-great transformation they desire, McDonald Inc. boasts a membership platform that fosters camaraderie with flexible membership options. From extensive tools to resources, hacks, courses, programs, and information, McDonald Inc. demonstrates savvy and rock-solid dedication in empowering women to become courageous, authentic, and kind leaders in their careers, and lives.   In a recent interview with Sonia, she enthused: “These are exciting times for us. There has never been a more critical need and urgency for a company such as McDonald Inc. to provide strategies and programs that help women, communities and companies with end-to-end solutions helping women back into the workforce, get that seat at the leadership table, and become owners and founders of fantastic businesses.”   A renowned speaker, Sonia evidently ‘walks the talk’ as far as her oft-referenced lectures on inclusionary leadership go with McDonald Inc. allowing for strategic tie-ups and collaborations with corporates to provide them with impactful leadership programs.   These collaborations set the tone for an increased focus on women’s development and recruitment in the corporate space, the result of which yields high representation in leadership positions and on boards, improved women participation, and retention rates. These companies become willful agents of change, further enhancing their brand image as an organisation that is diverse, inclusive, and supportive of women in the workplace.   Sonia added, "I see a world that provides businesses and companies with the strategies and leadership to attract, create and build women for the workplace and outside the four walls of the workplace — in leadership and entrepreneurship. But first, we can only achieve this when we recognize that the time to act is now.”   To learn more about McDonald Inc., the incredible membership and strategies we offer our members, clients, and organisations we work with, and our array of programs geared towards fostering great leadership, visit: https://www.mcdonaldinc.com.au/   Contact: For more information or to interview Sonia McDonald, contact: Sonia McDonald or Katie Watts 0424 447 616 | 1300 719 665   Related Links: https://soniamcdonald.com.au/ https://www.leadershiphq.com.au https://www.mcdonaldinc.com.au/   Get the Best Return for Your Old/Scrap Car with Surf Coast Car Removals Professional Cash for Cars in Geelong 2021-05-12T06:31:13Z get-the-best-return-for-your-old-scrap-car-with-surf-coast-car-removals-professional-cash-for-cars-in-geelong-1 Do you have an old/scrap car in your backyard and want to get rid of it instantly?
