Company’s fairytale beginning has an Impact
Karratha-based business Impact Media is making waves both locally and nationally, winning awards and contracts all over the country.
Impact Media founder and owner Tamara BinAmat took a risk leaving her job in 2013 to start the business and has since persevered through the Pilbara’s economic downturn, gained a list of national clients and seized opportunities brought about by the region’s growing number of small business.
“The Pilbara is embracing the need for marketing and design and we are committed to staying at the cutting edge of our industry for the benefit of our clients,” she said.
Impact Media was named best Aboriginal business at this year’s Karratha and Districts Chamber of Commerce and Industry Awards.
Ms BinAmat said she was honoured to have taken out the prize in her first year of entering the KDCCI awards.
“Our success has been a team effort and I thank our skilled and dedicated team of copywriters, graphic designers and web developers, along with our business mentors, including those at RSM and others,” she said.
Pilbara Girl, Red Dog Relay, Red Earth Arts Festival and Gamex are just a few of the events Impact Media have worked on and they have recently won a tender with the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade in Canberra.
“The future looks bright and we are excited about helping more Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal businesses in the Pilbara to thrive,” she said.
“This is only the beginning.”
