The West Perth-based financial adviser, who also has offices in North Perth and Bunbury, then took his 18 staff to Melbourne for the national awards last Thursday where a Tasmanian distillery won the National Small Business Award.

Mr MacMillan said he did not expect to win the state award but used the opportunity to attend the Melbourne awards night to expand his networks in the eastern states.

‘What we are doing is quite different so we want to show people the difference in finance advice.’

‘The program was on strategy so it was good to be in a class with other European executives’
