US trip yields busi­ness award

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Business - By DENISE S. CAHILL

CLARE­MONT busi­ness­woman Fleur Allen re­ceived the On­tra­port Suc­cess Award for Most Cre­ativ­ity with Tech­nol­ogy in Santa Bar­bara re­cently.

The Out of the Box Biz found­ing di­rec­tor was the only Aus­tralian win­ner at the awards and the soft­ware pro­gram com­pany recog­nised her fo­cus on get­ting peo­ple back in to face-to-face com­mu­ni­ca­tion.

Ms Allen said she used the US pro­gram for tasks such as cre­at­ing a news­let­ter and mar­ket­ing cam­paigns.

As part of the prize, Ms Allen was in­ter­viewed on cam­era about her­self and Out of the Box Biz with the video cir­cu­lated world­wide.

“At­tend­ing the con­fer­ence al­lowed me to meet many peo­ple as­so­ci­ated with the com­pany On­tra­port so I could learn, ask ques­tions and net­work with mem­bers from around the world. I have ob­tained a deeper un­der­stand­ing of cur­rent on­line mar­ket­ing trends and learned more about the so­phis­ti­cated soft­ware pro­gram,” she said.

Ms Allen started Out of the Box Biz, which has won three awards in the past year, in Jan­uary last year and has at­tracted 120 mem­bers since.
