Welcome T

hey say that time flies when you’re having fun and we have to say 2017 has soared! We kicked off our year by hitting the road for our famous ‘The Farmer Wants a Life’, this time with the inspirational Robyn Moore on board with us. We continued with the theme of positivity with Bruce Sullivan’s ‘Your Best You’ and Chris Haseman’s ‘Winning Formula’ events (p9). In amongst all this, we worked with clients on all-important tax planning, budgets and business strategies, developed marketing plans, secured loans and helped with HR and payroll; we travelled to Moonie, Weengallon, St George, Longreach and many places in between; we put teams in the local triathlons, netball and touch footy competitions; we hosted a regional Queensland first with an accounting software expo here in Dalby; we’ve said goodbye to special team members whose life circumstances took them to new locations and welcomed fresh faces to our team; and we even launched a new YouTube video! (Check it out at Our year climaxed with the honour of winning the Dalby Business of the Year award and Judge’s Choice for Professional Services, as well as being recognised by the Australian Financial Review as a Top 100 Australian Accounting Firm. These achievements are only possible because we have a genuine passion for making a difference in people’s lives. We’ve been prepared to try new things, to be nimble. We know we don’t always get it right, and we are willing to continuously learn and grow. With every step we take we continue to be so grateful for the opportunities we have to walk alongside our clients and our community. We hope through the pages of Every Step, you’ll get a glimpse into the many areas we work in and enjoy a peak behind the scenes of BMO. Happy reading,
