They protected us and enforced our rights to the fullest. We proudly continue to use them as our trusted legal advisors and are grateful for the opportunity to endorse them to others. They do not just say that they go the distance and have us covered, they do it” Sami Jundi and Lina Muskawi Bringing in the best for the best possible outcome, out-sourcing acquired information needed for the case to win.

Following the closure of the process, which follows a very strict format of self-submission and thirdparty nomination, firms are shortlisted and selected as winners. For each category awarded a proprietary method of analysis ranks winners based on their domestic and international work. This ranking method produces a list of shortlisted firms, based on a very comprehensive set of criteria. Once all votes have been received, a panel of judges review the votes within each category. The judging process assesses the following considerations; The strategic nature of work conducted. The complexity of work conducted. The scale of work conducted. Whether the work conducted was done in a timely manner, and within budget. Any ground-breaking or innovative processes used during completion of conducted work. The judging process focuses strongly on the complexity and strategic significance of work conducted. The above criteria underline’s the importance of the recognition each winner is receiving as a Global 100 winning organisation, firm or individual.

The company was established in 1985 and has grown from a 5000 sq. ft showroom to one of the largest luxury furniture and interiors brands in the UK, showcasing over 700 brands under 1 roof in their North London showroom.

at customer service, but we genuinely are a cut above the rest because we own all the necessary moving parts in-house. From the installers, the fitters, the delivery vans, the warehousing, the admin – none of it is subcontracted out. We own that last touch experience with the client and it’s been a game-changer, particularly as we’re in the luxury sector and expectations are so high.”

For over 3 decades, FCI’s dynamic and dedicated team has travelled the world in search of the most innovative furniture factories, developing along the way a reputation for uncovering hidden gems. FCI is known for finding and displaying the next big thing as well as exclusive, quality pieces from the world’s most respected designers. They were the first company to introduce many designer brands to the British public that are today widely recognised, such as Calligaris, Cattelan Italia, Leolux and Porada.

Impeccable furniture curation is FCI’s bread and butter, but they also offer a comprehensive interior design service with a team of trained designers, as well as a range of trade services for design professionals to take the headaches out of projects.

With over 100 000 orders and a customer review section that reads like a cheerleader’s showreel, FCI attributes their success to their commitment to exceptional service. Founder and CEO, Firdaus Nagree, has made this the axis around which the business turns. He says, “Everybody says they’re good

Firdaus’ other focus is on building a strong team of people who understand the core values of the company and who have similar values themselves. “We have the best team now that we have ever had, and I think a lot of that is to do with the culture we’ve created,” he says. “Once you’ve got the team right, everything else will fall into place around that.”

usion Telecom Ltd was founded and developed by Adam Norsworthy with a team of forward-thinking strategists, developers, and technology enthusiasts who are focused on delivering a seamless customer experience for their clients. Through technologies such as PayGuard and TransForm, Fusion Telecom Ltd have created innovative solutions for taking PCI Compliant payments and Call Centre communication tools that provide class leading customer experiences through efficient processes that pave the way for growth. Fusion Telecom Ltd embraces innovation across all areas of business, meeting the challenges that their customers experience, and providing products and services that exceed their expectations. Fusion Telcom Ltd has two leading solutions that resolve complex issues faced by companies that communicate and take payments remotely through Call Centres or internal customer service and sales departments. PayGuard was developed through a vision to help organisations take simple, secure and compliant payments. Helping these organisations remain compliant with bodies such as the PCI DSS is not as an easy task with over 300 requirements that need to be met! By not following the requirements of bodies such as the PCI DSS, businesses can find themselves out of scope of compliance, this puts their customers, business and directors at financial risk. By using PayGuard companies are able to significantly reduce risk, lower costs, cut administration, and improve security. PayGuard’s technology provides a simple user interface that can integrate with any current telecoms system. A single portal allows agents to take a payment, set up refunds or create recurring payments in seconds. Transactions can be taken over multiple channels including phone, social, web chat and SMS. They can also be processed through multiple gateways making it perfect for managing finances. TransForm helps businesses save time managing their inbound calls by lowering agent handling time, reducing queue times, and increasing customer satisfaction. This is done through an artificially intelligent inbound call solution that uses leading edge machine learning capabilities, managing call flow while improving customer experience. TransForm brings together leading tier 1 carriers and through their pioneering and experienced engineers they have created a next generation IVR platform. This

Most importantly we love our job and enjoy everyday. Letters of thanks and recommendations are common that continually motivate us. To constantly evolve and introduce new activities keeps the setting fresh and up to date where we stand out from the rest. For example the team at Happy Kids Childminding Service were super excited to employ Hayley Ledgerton a wonderful caring lady with massive amounts of energy and vast childcare experience - A true asset to the business in which we are both thankful for. We also introduced Rachel last year to our team from Mini Mantras Yoga. Having met Rachel on our 1st trial session we were blown away after only a few minutes to see how good she was. Not only does she involve children in Yoga exercises but through storytelling and craft making the sessions come to life. We immediately booked Rachel on permanent weekly slots to complement our setting and is a fantastic unique asset to our team and the children’s development. Rachel has a wealth of experience working as a Singer, Performer, Performing Arts & Drama Teacher and fully trained in children yoga. She along with Hayley brings lots of energy, enthusiasm and knowledge to our regular sessions at the setting.

We encourage parents and carers to observe the child at play in the home and to use this to help develop their child’s learning. We never stand still, we’re always striving for more. We use different ways to communicate with parents and carers. These include: daily diaries of significant events for their children; text messages; email for photographs and WhatsApp throughout the day.

The past 12 - 18 months have been very challenging for our business due to the COVID Crisis which has effected the childcare sector differently due to loss of clients and subsequent reduced income. So we as business decided to not waste time and use our free time effectively by renovating the setting and invested in additional space whilst implementing weekly zoom meeting to the children which were in our care to maintain a sense of normality and so to keep regular contact with each child which was a fantastic foresight that helped to retain clients when conditions improved. We continued to equip ourselves with additional knowledge through learning by completing numerous online training courses and passing them successfully to obtain certification.

Europe Best Financial Management Services Provider of the Year

UK

Better Business, Better Life!! John Harrison and Company provide a financial management service designed to provide a fully outsourced finance department to owner-managed businesses at an affordable price. Their sole commercial purpose is to increase the wealth of those whom they are privileged to serve. Using their skill with numbers, and the ideas of some of the world’s leading business thinkers and achievers, they’ve developed a series of processes, systems and tools to help businesses become much, much more successful. For example, they create a five year financial performance to analyse key ratios which are shown graphically to clients and benchmark the results with similar sized companies in the same trade. The figures are also projected forward on the assumption that key performance ratios continue to move at the same rate. Working with the business owner a five year strategic plan is created and then a budget is prepared for the next twelve months which produces a cash flow forecast and monthly budgets for comparison with actual results which enable speedy correction if the company is not performing financially as it should do. As the year progresses profit forecasts are created which allow effective tax planning and profit extraction to take place. John Harrison and Company’s financial management service is one of the most complete ones available. It provides bookkeeping and payroll, monthly financial reports and quarterly management accounts. It deals with credit control, invoicing and debt collecting; purchase invoice and payment processing; arranging the best insurance, utilities and telephone contracts and so much more. It is designed to provide a full outsourced finance department to owner managed businesses. It

is tailored to their individual needs to provide information and support that will help owners manage their businesses more profitably. This is a ‘back office’ finance department headed by a Chartered Accountant for owner managed businesses of all sizes. Their finance department will increase or decrease in size as the company’s circumstances change. They have also devised a tax mitigation service to ensure that their clients are paying the right amount of tax. With complex tax processes, many businesses pay more than they are legally required to; a problem that is easily avoidable with John Harrison and Company’s service. Their ‘Better Business, Better Life’ development programme is designed to take business owners through a full management control plan, from goal setting through to strategic planning, business modelling, customer service standards and operational efficiency. They promise the utmost level of service for their clients and back it up with their “on time, or it is free” guarantee. Through this pledge, they will pay any penalties and surcharges which might arise if they failed to meet a filing deadline as well as waive their fee for that work. John Harrison and Company is also committed to many charitable causes, and with the aim of working towards ‘Business for Good’ they have adopted the ‘Buy1Give1’ initiative. Choosing linked charities, they donate to schemes when certain business targets have been reached. Not only does this benefit those in need around the world, but it creates a high standard of social awareness that is upheld throughout their business. Contact Details Address: Tel: Email: Web:

Never settling, but forever continuing to enhance his knowledge and skills, he then went on to develop a novel diagnostic test called the ‘Modified FAAF Test’ which helps assess the cognitive processes involved with hearing. This test is now being used in audiological research. His passion for Audiology stretches with a thirst for adapting to clinical research and practice. Caring about both the end result and his patients, sets him apart from the rest.

“Helping people to hear again and making a difference in their life is a great privilege and honour and something I do with great passion and dedication.” Mr Raithatha has also authored several lectures for NHS Audiology e-learning modules. In 2011, Mr Raithatha began to practice as a Health and Care Professionals Council (HCPC) Registered Hearing Aid Audiologist at the world’s largest hearing aid company before establishing The Hear Clinic in 2013.

incorporated and Kingsway Village Custom Home (builder) To be recognized as a Global 100 winner, an architectural firm needs to have stepped beyond the norm, to achieve on-going success and recognition. We examined PhD Design’s portfolio to pinpoint why it is so worthy to win this recognition. A full-service, design-oriented firm committed to creating distinctive residences that bridge tradition with contemporary needs and technologies. Ever evolving and learning from one project to the next. A PhD home is comfortable and practical, be it a new build, an addition, a renovation or restoration. From the initial consultation to the end of construction, PhD Design ensures that the client’s experience is memorably enriching. Set in the heart of elegant 1920’s Home-Smith Tudor and Georgian mansions on Toronto’s leafy Kingsway, the new residence at 43 Kingsway Crescent was designed for a young active family who entertain and appreciate art. These homeowners were attracted by the street façade’s design of impressive towers, dormers, steep roof, chimneys, stone detailing and rich architectural details. However at the first meeting with Peter Marzynski they revealed that they wanted to be taken out of their comfort zone. And so stepping to the rear of the property, a stunning ‘architectural sleight of hand’ takes place. As Peter says, “We wanted to open the house out.” Choosing the finest aesthetics for the project, the clients accepted that the design would create harmony between the two

iterations. The new house was designed to seamlessly fit into the traditional Kingsway neighborhood, while, privately, the rear of the house faces a ravine of oaks and maples with stunning views of the Humber River. The Interior and exterior are luminously interconnected. As Peter says “Light brings joy and is a key component of good interiors.” The house has large doors and windows, a second floor terrace and multi-level patio stepping down to a swimming pool. The exquisitely proportioned windows and glazed terrace doors bring sunshine to the spacious interior. Noble limestone clads the exterior walls: its’ usage cleverly understated to avoid competing with the detailing around the front entrance and dormers. The black slate roof links to careful treatment of the zinc eaves and downspouts that give definition to the tall dormers. The interior of the house with its’ Beaux Arts detailing is both impressive and highly functional. In all it is a masterful creation and gives to the proud home owners the best of both worlds. Architecture is in Peter Marzynski’s blood. His father Stanislaw was one of the most respected architects in Poland. He followed in his father’s footsteps, first practising architecture in Europe. Since its’ founding in 1985, PhD Design has undertaken the design of some 600 projects in highly prestigious areas of Toronto and surrounding areas. From Tudor through Georgian, Victorian and Craftsman styles, Peter is also highly adept at cutting-edge Modernist structures. He remarks: “My design philosophy seeks a harmonious balance while striving to be functional. Awareness of the environment and local culture are front of mind as I build to ensure a long-term investment for my clients.”

I established Project Lifesaver International in 1999 when it became apparent that there was a void that needed to be filled in providing search, rescue and protection for “At Risk” individuals who are prone to the life-threatening behavior of wandering. Project Lifesaver was the first organization to apply tracking technology for the search and rescue of individuals with cognitive disorders and have remained the leader, the Gold Standard, in this field for over two decades. Because of our extensive experience in search and rescue of wanderers, Project Lifesaver has provided valuable insight and information in the development of policy and sound practices for search, rescue, and safe recovery of at-risk wanders. We help in the development of materials and training programs to provide the necessary education of doctors, caregivers, school administrators, first responders/search personnel, and of course, the families with loved ones at risk. In fact, Project Lifesaver is a subject matter expert and advisor on the wandering issue for: Leaders Engaged on Alzheimer’s disease (LEAD), National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, The International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP), Alzheimer’s Foundation, and the National Alzheimer’s Project Act (NAPA). The Project Lifesaver’s training program is recognized and approved by the Virginia Department of Criminal Justice Services and National Preparedness Institute of Indian River State College.

What has made our approach unique is that we have created an entire education and training program that includes tracking techniques and technology, partnering with the local first responders, educating those public safety agencies on the latest health information related to the disorders they will be working with, and training those first responders to approach the “at risk” individual, gain their trust and put them at ease for their trip home once they have been located. Project Lifesaver program is more than just the latest and most effective protect and locate technology. The Project Lifesaver program also provides first responders with an understanding of the symptoms and behaviors of the individuals that they are recovering; they know how to approach the individual, gain their trust and put them at ease for the trip home. Project Lifesaver trained certified and equipped first responders have the tools and training to assess and effectively manage the safe and comfortable return of the “At Risk” individual.

Project Lifesaver trained emergency response teams have rescued nearly 4000 at risk individuals (and this number is growing with each passing day). The program is now in nearly 1,700 agencies covering all 50 states and throughout all the Canadian Provinces. * Gene Saunders is the Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Project Lifesaver International.

North America Pool Contractor of the Year - Galveston County

At the heart of every successful business, you will find people with passion, drive, and a commitment to continuously raise the bar. We found out exactly what makes Southern Charm Pools an entity to remember. As a family-owned business, the owners Chris and Beth McDaniel, are proud to live in, work, and support their own community. A wholesome foundation has been built not only on high quality builds, but a strong and faithful word of mouth throughout the community. There really isn’t anything better than the support of your clients! Southern Charm Pools, is the premiere pool builder for League City and the greater Clear Lake area. Chris is a Genesis-certified builder, as well as Traci, who serves as the Director of Operations. They are committed to providing a well-designed pool, built with the highest craftmanship and exceeding industry standards. Building in-ground, custom, gunite swimming pools and spas, Southern Charm Pools values the relationships with their clients above all, enabling the process to become more than “just another build”. Being readily available to their past and present clients for all questions and advice, they have created many lasting friendships along the way. Southern Charm Pools always puts their clients’ needs first, ensuring that the vision of their dream pool is completely understood. When Chris was asked what gives them that push, he said, “Our overall goal is to make our clients satisfied and happy by creating a backyard that they can enjoy and be proud of for many years. For our clients to do this, we know they will have questions over time. Unlike other pool builders in our area, we keep in touch with our clients and give them the best customer service out there. We have a designated Customer Relations Manager, whose role is to work with our team as an advocate, to make sure all clients are informed, happy, and satisfied. During the construction process, our clients hear from us every day. After the construction process, our clients are encouraged to contact us for questions and warranty requests. We also regularly check in with past clients, and even stop by their homes to see them having fun in their pools.” It’s very clear that this is more than building pools and adding value to a property. Southern Charm Pools is building dreams and helping make memories that families can have for years. To be a part of enriching the lives of their clients in such a positive way is the very reason they are where they are today. They have recently won awards for three of their pool projects from the Southwest PHTA (Pool and Hot Tub Association). For two separate pools, they each received 2020 Awards of Merit for gunite pools over $90,000, with a freeform shape and over 601 square feet. Another award is the 2021 Silver Award for Hot Tub/ Spa Water Feature. Given the weather in Galveston County, it is possible to swim for 10 months out of the year. Very mild winters are great for a pool business! One challenge that arises is the available space within the yard. Utility easements have

USA

been increased due to recent floods. Many cities now have storm pollution regulations that have caused the increase in easements, limiting the availability of space for pools and standing structures. Southern Charm Pools is committed to creating new ways to navigate these types of changes, which includes building strong partnerships with the local municipalities to stay in compliance while still providing customers with beautiful pool designs. “Although this is a challenge when designing in-gr ound swimming pools, we at Southern Charm Pools are up to the task, and our sales and design team have been producing gorgeous, creative designs to fit the limited space they are able to work with.” To sustain the quality they are known for in the community, Southern Charm Pools will never cut corners. The construction team has honed their skills, and are very thorough, while remaining extremely time-efficient. Through every stage of the project, they are exceeding industry standards, which is not a common practice among many builders. Committed to bettering themselves through education, the Southern Charm Pools team stays up to date on the latest products, design elements, and construction trends. Providing insightful knowledge throughout the construction process helps educate the client and ensures the pool will be a sound structure for many years to come. “Additionally, a new project and pool must get the client excited! Our sales team listens very carefully to the needs of the client, and what they envision for their dream pool. We truly customize the designs, as there are no “cookie cutter” designs at Southern Charm Pools.” Chris has personally designed a pool that was very specific to the needs of a highly autistic child. The child loves to be in water and needed the safety and security in his own backyard with special pool features, and specific

placement in the yard. Chris loves working with people and has a huge heart. He approaches each pool as if he were designing it for a family member, and he treats our clients the same way. “Having a pool is not a necessity – it is something that people plan and save for, and we don’t take that for granted. We do our best to make the entire pool building experience as special for our clients as possible!” So what’s next for the Southern Charm Pools team? They are continually looking for new ways to learn, grow, and expand. They’re also constantly striving to meet the needs of all future and existing clients. As a team, they recently attended the International Pool and Spa Show in Dallas, Texas. The team was able to experience new and exciting products that they can offer their clients. Having just adopted a new client/construction management software application, they can enhance the services already provided to clients. Additionally, they are exploring options for fiberglass pools, given the rising demand of this alternate to a traditional gunite pool. Many exciting and innovative things are around the corner for this growing business!

North America Best Municipal Bond Money Management Firm in the United States

The DRL Group specializes in bonds, primarily tax-free bonds. Approximately 80% of our transactions are in the tax-exempt sector, with 80% falling under the insured category. The other 20% of our business comes from Corporate Bond transactions, with 50% of those being in High Yielding Corporates. Our specialty is acquiring securities from dealers and then allocating them into retail accounts. We subsequently look for the perfect match (requested credit quality, yield, duration and amount) within our client base for each security. We focus mainly on the bid side of the market and then pass along the savings, resulting in higher yield, to our clients. Using this approach, we can show our clients a wide array of securities in all 50 states that meet their financial objectives. Our goal is to tailor each portfolio to meet their desired rate of return based on market conditions. Many options exist in the municipal world to either create a new portfolio, or add to an existing one, by replacing securities that have been called or matured. While we do a small portion of equity business, bonds are our primary focus. Our clients rely on the DRL Group to manage the debt portion of their assets base. Our #1 objective is to keep their money working tax-free while they continue running their businesses, focusing on their career or just enjoying retirement. Once we establish an account, we maintain close communication with our clients and, of course, monitor their existing investments. The DRL Group provides financial solutions to high-net worth individuals that align with their risk-tolerance and objectives of quality, safety, and liquidity. We develop long-term, income-oriented investment approaches. Our business reaches all 50 states and encompasses all publicly traded securities. We have extensive experience in trading in all different types of markets, including both liquidity and material events. The DRL Group is the actual “desk” that interacts with The Street, and because of that structure, we can offer superior pricing and higher yields. Thanks to our state-of-the-art technology platform, DRL Group clients have access to both the primary and secondary bond markets. This provides our accounts with efficient pricing because we can execute trades on both the buy and sell side of the transaction, which in most cases, results in higher returns. We differentiate ourselves from the competition by our experience in the fixed income bond market. We then go to great lengths to help our clients understand this ever-changing market—and guide them through it. We take the time to understand each client’s needs based on their tax bracket, age, goals and financial situation.

USA

We continuously analyze and update strategies to meet their evolving individual objectives for income, growth and asset protection. Our clients deal directly with the owners of the firm—not junior advisors or a call center. Our clients’ time is extremely valuable, so when a client calls, we pick up the phone. DRL Group clients always receive the personal attention they deserve. With over 70 years of collective industry expertise, the DRL Group has persevered through significant ups and downs of the economy and the market. Since we are not owned by a bank or an insurance company, we sell no proprietary, high-commission products. Instead, the financial products we do offer are driven and determined by what is in the best interest of our clients. All of our operations are highly regulated. We are not owned by anyone but ourselves. Your investment funds are held at our custodian, National Financial Services, a 100%-owned subsidiary of Fidelity Investments. Along with being awarded Houston’s Top Wealth Managers and Global 100 for multiple years, the DRL Group was invited to join the Houston Business Journal Leadership Trust in 2021 and 2022. These influential, Houston-based business leaders, executives, and entrepreneurs come together to positively impact the local business community and beyond. Technology is an extremely important but complex aspect of our industry. To stay competitive, new technology systems must be developed regularly to stay connected with larger broker dealers. The DRL Group allocates significant funding annually to technology, and we contract with a dedicated IT team that only works for us. We communicate with them daily, and together, we develop technology that gives us an edge over competitors. This allow us to stay ahead of the technology challenges and communicate effectively, quickly, and accurately because we are equipped with the right set of tools. Our entire team at DRL Group is considered “key individuals.” As previously stated, the firm has over 70 years of collective industry expertise. In any circumstance, , we have the wisdom and gravitas to help our clients navigate through, successfully. Most financial professionals are “jack-of-all-trades, master of none.” The DRL Group has taken a different approach to financial services. We are “masters of one,” having spent decades doing one thing well: fixedincome investing. Unlike other investment firms, the DRL Group has a singular focus. We specialize in the bond market, helping provide fixed-income solutions for our clients.

Oceania & Global Best Global Business Technology Specialists of the Year

Global Touch was founded in 1990 by its President and CEO, Denise Sangster, as a hybrid computing, consumption era strategy and go-to-market transformation consulting organization, focusing on its partners and partner ecosystems. It concentrates on increasing its technology clients’ revenues by supporting partners with a product portfolio, programs, and benefits (incentives, investments, etc.) needed to deliver the outcomes customers need and want for this year and years ahead. Since Global Touch was founded, one of its core disciplines has been to use data, data-led storytelling, and metrics to help clients understand the economics of building predictable and profitable revenue streams through partners and partner ecosystems. “Since our founding, we have focused on breakthrough innovation embedded in our core ‘step-ahead’ philosophy. We continually redefine our clients’ expectations to eliminate boundaries while balancing performance and transformation.” Global Touch was founded to provide 360° synchronization between IT companies, customers, and partners in three areas: Alignment, Acceleration, and Predictability in revenue, growth, profit, and value. Impressively, it has represented everything from startups to Fortune 500, FT 500 companies, and Nikkei 100 companies, which has built up a world-class reputation in delivering actionable insights that help shape future direction for sustainable revenue growth through partners.

answers the client wants to hear. This outlook is part of Sangster’s philosophy to treat all clients as clients for life. The birth of a business takes many directions and can be very overwhelming for some, perhaps as a pipeline dream that never surfaces. As a new business owner and entrepreneur, Denise, an American female working globally, did not yet have the global reputation she felt she needed to fuel her career. To address this challenge, she became a columnist, writing articles for IT publications across Europe, America, and Australia. Through her resilience, Denise fought past the Europeans’ initial resistance to have an American female helping with the growth of the European IT market. “I eventually won most over and some even became clients. The best part was that many became very good and life-long friends, extending our relationships to their spouses and children. In fact, I have had four (adult) children of European technology executives work for my company over the years,” Conceptualized 30 years ago, this globally renowned company has made a significant mark in its niche. Today, Global Touch embodies the path to innovation, and it strives for excellence through world class customer experiences and success measured by achieving outcomes through anticipated and unforeseen roads to success. So where do they go from here? Well, going from strength to strength, continually finding new ways to ‘up’ their game to raise that all important bar, they have ideas in the works that will be ready later this year.

What makes Global Touch a Global award-winning company is its extensive global field expertise to ensure it keeps on top of current trends, emerging opportunities, and threats as part of balancing current performance with the need to transform to be ready for what’s next.

Oceania & Global Best Australasian Independent Self-Publishing Company 2022 Ocean Reeve Publishing –

“The uncertainty with today’s global crisis is everywhere, in every family, industry and country. From day to day we are taking a big breath and preparing ourselves for the next curve ball or shift that COVID and our governments will put in front of us. This has led to one very large positive,’ comments Ocean Reeve, CEO of Ocean Reeve Publishing in Australia. ‘It has led to a huge book boom here in Australia and internationally”. Reeve has seen over the last two years how individuals have taken advantage of lockdowns to write and publish. Ocean Reeve Publishing (ORP) is helping writers bring their stories to life in physical form, eBook and audiobook, along with utilising a world-first book marketing mentoring program all developed and operated from Brisbane, Queensland. This program mentors authors through every step of the book marketing journey in an age where author ownership over marketing is a necessity. This assisted independent publisher was founded by Ocean Reeve in 2016 and helps to bridge an industry gap by offering an alternative to the uncertainty of selfpublishing and likely rejection from big publishing houses. “Fundamentally, everyone has a book in them. We’ve heard this for years and the pandemic brought this out of more people than usual,” says Reeve, “People took to the keyboards for the firsttime during lockdowns, while around 50-60% of our new authors had manuscripts written pre-COVID. The pandemic prompted them to pull them out, dust them off, and then publish.” Reeve said first-time authors were across a broad demographic. Everyone from stay-at-home mums to self-help gurus, business leaders, victims of crime, and fiction writers are now discovering they can fulfill their dream of being a published author and succeed in this space. “We give authors control while mentoring and supporting them through the entire publishing process so they’re not floundering in the highly competitive book market. Our world-first tailored book marketing mentoring program provides

Australia

guidance on everything from pre-selling their books, effectively launching it on and offline and then creating the necessary awareness for their book both here in Australia and internationally.” 2021 showed just how successful Reeve’s business model actually is as a flurry of awards came rolling in. Beginning in March 2021 with the APAC Enterprise Award for Best Australasian Independent and SelfPublishing Company. This was followed by the top award in Business Excellence issued by Roar Success, a Melbourne based marketing company. Reeve himself was runner-up in the 2021 Innov8 Awards for Original and Creative Thinking for Businesses aged 2-5 years. In addition, a national awards program titled the Australian Small Business Champion Awards listed Ocean Reeve Publishing as a finalist for 2021. The actual winners have yet to be announced due to the awards ceremony being postponed into 2022 due to COVID. Finally, Reeve’s organisation won the Best Australasian Independent Publishing Company 2021 through the Global 100 awards and now, they have added the 2022 top award for their industry as well. “To be recognised by an international organisation like KMH Media Group and the Global100, not just once but twice, is immensely exciting. It helps highlight how successful and prominent the indie author scene is and how companies, like ours, are not only listening to what authors need but meeting those needs,” Mr Reeve said. Ocean Reeve Publishing has just recently brought in their 1000th author as of January 2022 and published more than 700 books over the last five years. A few of these authors have had their books picked up internationally, won awards themselves and some are on their second and third print runs. It appears with the past years accolades; this is set to be another successful year for this publisher and their authors.
