8 APAC / Australian Enterprise Awards 2022 , What’s your skin type? Combination, dry, or oily? Whatever it may be, Beauty Affairs has the right products for you. From luxury skincare to cosmetics and fragrances, Beauty Affairs boasts an impressive array of products, including Armani perfumes, Elizabeth Arden’s range of premium skincare, and Dior’s opulent cosmetics. Indeed, Beauty Affairs caters to a multitude of clients with a primary focus on up-market customers. However, the key aim, no matter who the customer is or what their basket includes, is to provide its customers with a true, enhanced beauty affair. Luxury is simply at the heart of Beauty Affairs. From the moment you log in to the site to the moment you check out, each element is optimised, seamless, and glamorous, providing a onestop online shop for high-end cosmetics and skincare products. Every detail of the customer experience is carefully thought through: shipping is expedited ‘Luxury delivers always,’ is the motto that influences every element of Beauty Affairs’ business – from the products it provides, to the way the website operates, the company exudes luxury. Henceforth, customers always come back for more, be it for the excellent customer service or the company’s vast inventory of skincare and cosmetics. Chanel, Elizabeth Arden, and Versace are just a taste of the near epicurean brands that Beauty Affairs prides itself on carrying – therefore, join us as we delve into a world filled with opulence and glamour. Most Innovative Luxury Beauty eTailer 2022 with same-day dispatch for orders placed before 1PM AEDT, orders are carefully wrapped in bespoke tissue-paper and customised packaging, and samples are added to orders to create a top-shelf experience. However, Beauty Affairs understands that these products aren’t within everyone’s budgets – some can’t afford to spend money on products that won’t work for them – therefore, it has created a method that ensures accessibility called Try Before You Buy Upon utilising the skincare analysis tool, the customer has the option to obtain some complimentary skincare pots. The only cost the customer faces is the price of shipping and packaging. For $19.95 AUD clients are provided with three Luxury Mini Jars that contain 2.5gr of the original product – this includes brands such as Dermalogica and SK-II, whose products can reach up to $379.00 AUD. This is perfect for those who want just a little taste of luxury beauty before committing to a full-sized skincare routine, plus incentivises shoppers by allowing them to use that $19.95 against the full-sized products once they’ve decided to make a purchase. Of course, this ties in with the company’s belief that luxury skincare should be personalised, accessible, and, most importantly, effective. Whilst Beauty Affairs works to curate the best luxury brands and products all in one place, it also places an enormous emphasis on education – not every skincare product will work for your skin type. It is vital to choose products that work for your skin. Beauty Affairs has invested a great amount into supplying authentic, sciencebased education from its global beauty experts, and be it via the blog or the skin analysis, provides a vast amount of information on the best skin care routines for a range of skin types. Additionally, Beauty Affairs truly believes in the products it supplies. Whilst many brands on the market feature the same ingredients, there is nothing quite like the results and experiences that luxury products can create. Using luxury products can guarantee an overall superior experience – not only in the results they can provide, but with the way they feel on the skin, the way they smell, and the way they are capable of brightening a bad mood. The decision to use luxury products is a responsible one, almost always guaranteeing that the product is cruelty-free, vegan, and sustainable, and, perhaps Jan22686

APAC / Australian Enterprise Awards 2022 9 Most Innovative Luxury Beauty eTailer 2022 more importantly, luxury skincare offers a sensational experience that cannot be found elsewhere. As the company states, ‘luxury delivers always.’ Home to over 70 brands, Beauty Affairs hosts the best of the best – skincare titans that have become globally renowned for their upmarket ranges and effective products. Elizabeth Arden, for example, is one of the most prestigious and oldest luxury skincare and cosmetics brands on the market. Founded in 1910 as Red Door, the company passed through numerous hands, before being purchased in 2003 by FFI for $225 million USD. It was here that the company gained its iconic name which it acquired from Elizabeth Arden (1881-1966), the founder of the company. In 2016 the company was taken over by Revlon, and at this time it was estimated to have annual gross sales amounting to over $3 billion USD. Elizabeth Arden’s products have grown to be incredibly popular, particularly in recent years due to the boom in skincare popularity. Numerous products are available on the Beauty Affairs website, including the Elizabeth Arden Prevage® Anti-Aging Daily Serum, the Elizabeth Arden Retinol Ceramide Capsules Line Erasing Night Serum, and the Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Youth Restoring Essence. Aside from a plethora of skincare products, Beauty Affairs supplies designer perfumes in abundance. Women’s, men’s, and unisex fragrances are all available through the website, featuring deluxe brands like Dolce & Gabbana, Bulgari, and Yves Saint Laurent. Tom Ford’s Black Orchid also makes an appearance, with the 100ml bottle being priced competitively at $277 AUD. Launched in 2006, the fragrance has become a recognisable and sought-after product, with its sultry tones making it an incredibly unique scent for women. Straying away from the typical sweet and floral scents, Black Orchid combines an aromatic formula of black

10 APAC / Australian Enterprise Awards 2022 , truffle, black plum, patchouli and, of course, black orchid, to create an unforgettable perfume. In the men’s range, Beauty Affairs advertises Paco Rabanne, Penhaligon’s, and Versace. For $499 AUD, buyers can indulge in the woody undertones of Creed’s Viking scent. Launched in 2021 by Olivier and Erwin Creed, the fragrance harbours top notes of mandarin orange, pink pepper, lemon, and bergamot, which is blended with base tones of vetiver, sandalwood, cedar, olibanum, and patchouli. The fragrance is a pleasant addition to the Creed line, of which many of its fragrances feature on Beauty Affairs and can be described as an elegant and fresh aroma. Yet if fragrances and skincare aren’t what you’re looking for, Beauty Affairs possesses an overwhelming amount of haircare, health and wellness, and cosmetic products. Hair straighteners, beauty supplements, concealers, and more, are all highlighted on the website. It is safe to say that when Beauty Affairs names itself as a ‘one-stop shop’ it is a completely accurate statement. Quite simply, it is Australia’s leading online authority on all things luxury and cosmetics related. Consistently the company goes above and beyond the call of duty in order to infuse luxury into its clients’ lives – and this includes its VIP member deals. Using luxury skincare is one thing but indulging in a world of luxury treatments is another. As a Beauty Affairs VIP member, you will be invited to experience one of Sydney’s best noninvasive luxury treatment spas as an exclusive offer. These deals are only available via the VIP package and cannot be found elsewhere, and the luxury packages must be booked through Beauty Affairs. Moreover, the experience in its entirety can be personalised, involving skin treatments and products that suit the customer’s skin. The treatments take place in a single treatment bed room and are carried out by highly qualified and professional aestheticians, ensuring a relaxing, attentive, and comfortable experience. Indeed, each of the treatment partners has been handselected by Beauty Affairs for their level of customer service, knowledge, and most importantly, luxury experience. Many that have taken this offer have complimented the service, leaving it numerous five-star reviews. Jenny R., a VIP member who completed the offer, left a testimonial stating, ‘Highly recommend! The staff are very professional and understanding of my sensitive skin. Their beautician does the most relaxing treatments – my skin is supple and settled after any treatment.’ Furthermore, Beauty Affairs has designed an awards scheme that allows members to build up a collection of points by completing tasks. For example, adding your birthday will give you 200 points, and leaving a product review awards 500. These points add up quickly and can be redeemed in return for a discount – 500 points can be exchanged for $5 AUD off your order, and 2000 for $20 AUD. When redeemed, the customer will receive a code that they can use during the checkout process. Beauty Affairs could not have made the process any simpler, it is quick, easy, and streamlined, and perhaps best of all, it provides a great incentive for customers to buy the products that they have been eyeing up. If the customer is in need of any further assistance, they can refer to the company’s blog or social media pages. Filled with helpful articles such as Does Lash Serum Actually Work? and Everything You Need to Know About Azelaic Acid, the blog acts as a magnificent guide to skincare and skin issues. It features advice, recommendations, and information surrounding common skin issues, and serves as that little extra push for clients hesitant about purchasing luxury skincare. Being able to educate customers about skincare by using highperformance beauty products from around the world as examples elevates Beauty Affairs head and shoulders above the competition, making them the obvious choice for the luxury skincare & cosmetics connoisseur. However, for more visual learners, the Beauty Affairs TikTok page serves as a treat. Since its creation, the account has amassed over 22 thousand

APAC / Australian Enterprise Awards 2022 11 Most Innovative Luxury Beauty eTailer 2022 followers and 78 thousand likes, all pouring in from skincare fanatics from around the globe. Featuring short videos about skincare hacks, peptides, cleansing, skin types, and recommendations – the list is endless – the TikTok page is a crash course in all things skincare. In addition, the page deconstructs the common lies and myths shared by skincare brands and consumers, including the claim of products being ‘chemical-free.’ Dozens of the videos have gone viral, with some garnering hundreds of thousands of views. The most popular video is titled Skincare Mistakes Volume 1 and has received 458 thousand views and over 30 thousand likes – the video teaches to apply oil after moisturiser, to apply retinol if needed as it is beneficial for skin rehabilitation, and to not wash your face with hot water. The company’s online presence alongside its devotion to quality has placed it at an advantage in a booming market. According to Statista, the global skincare market is expected to be worth around 189.3 billion U.S. dollars by 2025 and, in 2022, is currently estimated to be standing at 163.5 billion USD. This dramatic growth can be attributed to the shift in the skincare consumer base. In recent years skincare has seen its audience become younger and younger as people are becoming increasingly aware of its benefits, particularly in terms of anti-aging solutions. Contrasting this, the global cosmetics market decreased to 85.8 billion U.S. dollars in 2020, however, according to the Statista Consumer Market Outlook, it is estimated that revenue will begin to increase over the next few years, and by 2025 reach over 122 billion U.S dollars annually. Beauty Affairs biggest advantage? Its devotion to pleasing customers. The power of the customer cannot be underestimated, especially in a cutthroat industry such as cosmetics. In essence, the customer is what guarantees the company’s survival, and if it can capture their loyalty then it is set for long-term success. Beauty Affairs has been successful in this endeavour, satisfying customers across the globe, and this is reflected in the reviews of the company. Maintaining a five-star rating on Google Reviews and Facebook, the company has clearly cultivated a positive reputation. In one review, Madeline De Neeve stated, ‘The overall experience was absolutely stellar, don’t think it can be better than this.’ Meanwhile, Isabelle Seddon summed Beauty Affairs up as, ‘undeniably superior to the rest.’ Consequently, it is blatant that Beauty Affairs is the premium source for online luxury skincare services, and it has certainly earned the title of Most Innovative Luxury Beauty eTailer 2022. There is no doubt that at Beauty Affairs the customer experience comes first, and that it works to provide an unbeatable experience that is educational, elegant, and efficient. Henceforth, Beauty Affairs has accomplished its mission. Contact: Elly Agronov Company: Beauty Affairs Web Address:

12 APAC / Australian Enterprise Awards 2022 , Best Cosmetic Dentist - Victoria Recently regarded as Victoria’s Best Cosmetic Dentist, Brentford Cosmetic Dental is dedicated to providing high-quality dental care within Australia.

The company ensures that no matter the issue, the work of its highly qualified dentists will be able to come to a solution safely and comfortably with results that will have patients beaming. Prior to becoming a dentist, Dr Adam Mattsson was set off on another path with the idea to become a musician. Thankfully for the smiles of Victoria, Dr Adam was enlightened by his sister, who is a paediatric dentist. Falling in love with the industry and the professionalism that came of becoming a dentist, Dr Adam put down the music sheets and picked up the toothpaste. To prepare for the newfound objective of becoming a dentist, Dr Adam began his journey in 1998, earning himself a Bachelor of Dentistry.

Brentford welcomes entire families to the clinic, aiming to assure that children and adults alike to have an enjoyable experience within the practice.

Practicing for over 14 years in Melbourne, Dr Adam Mattsson recently built a state-of-the-art clinic in Melbourne’s Eastern Suburbs, serving Blackburn, Doncaster, Box Hill Ringwood and surrounds. Within this setting, Dr Adam and his team can perform Nitrous Sedation due to the wider facility and CT scans, which are rarely offered within a practice. By providing greater space for clients, not only can the practice take on more referrals and patient enquiries but can utilize the updated area to bring in better treatments for its clients. From online reviews, patient transformation galleries, lists of certifications, accreditations and qualifications, Brentford offers the best to its patients, from comfortable seating, spacious areas, friendly team members and most importantly – a renowned international dentist. With the new year coming in strong, Brentford and its professionals look forward to 2022, welcoming new patients with whatever is needed.

APAC / Australian Enterprise Awards 2022 13 , Jan22165 Best Photography Services Provider - Western Sydney Sara Louise Photography creates art for all – embodying the fact that photography should be accessible, non-discriminatory, and creative. Be it boudoir shots or product photography, the company has cultivated an atmosphere of freedomand peace. With Sara Louise Photography, there is no judgement, just authentic beauty captured through a camera. The art world is a place for true freedom – to express yourself through whatever medium you see fit, be it oil paint, embroidery, or photography. There are endless possibilities, new ways to enrich the imagination, and thousands of opportunities to delve into and explore new worlds. However, at its core, the arts are – and should be – non-discriminatory, and there is room for everyone. The arts see wonder in every corner, beauty in every being, and inspiration within words. Sara Louise Photography truly captures the essence of inclusivity and creativity, maintaining a diverse portfolio of electrifying, candid, and high-quality images. Founded by Sara Spearpoint, Sara Louise Photography was created to prove that anyone has the ability and imagination to accomplish their dreams. On the autism spectrum and a survivor of abuse, Sara endeavours to relinquish the limits that society places on anyone with a difference and show the world that no matter who you are or what your background is, you can make a change. ‘You can not be brave without fear,’ serves to be one of Sara’s mantras, a phrase that holds a certain kind of truth to it. Indeed, the aim of Sara Louise Photography is to simply represent Sara’s version of beauty via her lens. The company is a nondiscriminative photography service and business, it does not turn anyone away. Furthermore, it offers many services from small events, boudoir shoots, commercial photography, and so forth. Sara holds a bachelor’s degree in business management and Certificate IV in photography, therefore, it is abundantly clear that Sara Louise Photography is the correct choice for all your photography needs. One of the key factors behind the company’s success, besides its knack for customer service, is its ability to collaborate seamlessly with its clients. Taking into consideration the budget, the client’s ideas, and accessibility, the company goes above and beyond to ensure that the customer receives not only high-quality images, but a positive overall experience. Moreover, Sara Louise Photography strives to be different – it pushes aside trends and the status quo in order to reach an authentic level of creativity. Each photo comes from a place of love and passion for both people and the artform. Additionally, Sara’s work has been shown in exhibitions across the globe, presented to audiences in a variety of galleries. Alongside many other industries, the photography world was greatly impacted by the Covid-19 outbreak. As the majority of artists and photographers are self-employed or reliant on small businesses, the pandemic has been an enormous challenge, especially in terms of income and employment opportunities. Sara Louise Photography has opted to halt the portraiture element of the business for the time being, due to Sara’s eldest child having cystic fibrosis and being immunocompromised. However, the company has adapted, instead focusing upon product photography. This path has ensured that the business can continue operating without placing anyone at risk – meetings take place online, and products are passed on with no contact. In addition, the company has experimented with new artistic styles, which have been incredibly popular. The next year, however, is both an exciting and busy one for Sara Louise Photography. It has a plethora of plans in the pipeline – including a campaign surrounding the awareness of cystic fibrosis, utilising photography to raise funds and push cystic fibrosis further into the public sphere.

14 APAC / Australian Enterprise Awards 2022 , Tilegne Therapymakes therapy services approachable – it removes the stigma around speech, occupational, andmusic therapy, making themmore appealing to both children and adults. Indeed, Tilegne Therapy ensures that its clients get the treatment that they need, nomatter what their native tongue may be, what their age is, or what their accessibility requirements are. With Tilegne Therapy, no one is left behind. Created to resolve the increasing issue of a lack of speech therapy services catering to disadvantaged, migrant, and multicultural communities in Australia, Tilegne Therapy has created a compassionate and creative therapy service that endeavours to fill this gap. Indeed, Tilegne Therapy serves to empower its clients by not only aiding its clients’ speech development but helping them become more confident in who they are. Offering a comprehensive allied health service for children, adults, and seniors, the company utilises cutting-edge treatments to create effective treatment programs. Tilegne Therapy offers a vast range of services including occupational therapy, music therapy, a dietician, and, of course, speech therapy. Its services are bespoke – able to be tailored to its client’s exact needs – and are focused upon long-term solutions. Its speech therapy service, for example, differentiates between children’s and adult services. Within children, its speech therapy services can target a plethora of key areas including autism spectrum disorder related delays, speech clarity, receptive language, and functional communication. Whereas its adult services cover dysphagia, voice therapy, and speech and articulation, and much more. The company is on a mission to create inclusivity within the community and strives to support its diverse clientele via providing a range of opportunities that will improve lifestyles and push people to their full potential. Furthermore, providing both onsite and mobile services, Tilegne Therapy prioritises accessibility. Research shows that over four million people living in Australia have a disability, a fact which Tilegne Therapy takes to heart. Through and through, Tilegne Therapy has devoted itself to providing a non-discriminatory and transparent service, catering to underserved areas. Many of the company’s speech pathologists are bilingual and are equipped to provide therapy in a range of languages, including Cantonese, Mandarin, Hindi, Nepalese, Spanish, and Malay. Therefore, it is able to target the needs of bilingual children more accurately, focusing on the true reason why speech is impaired. Bilingual speech therapy can move a client through their goals while taking into account language, accent, and dialect difference, whilst also allowing them to remain comfortable. Tilegne Therapy will not force is patients into using English, instead, it believes its patients – especially the children – benefit greatly from the opportunity to undertake therapy in their native language. It allows the patient to grow whilst maintaining their cultural ties. This is, in essence, what sets Tilegne Therapy apart from its competition. The Covid-19 pandemic has caused a surge in demand for healthcare services – something which Tilegne Therapy has witnessed first-hand. The business had to transfer its services over to a telehealth model, allowing its clients to continue their treatment safely whilst abiding by the new restrictions. However, as the industry continues to grow exponentially, this has provided Tilegne Therapy with the possibility of new partnerships. Henceforth, the company is looking for new partnership opportunities with firms that maintain similar values. The upcoming year will see the introduction of a range of new services. Since 2020 the company has been designing and growing its garden, which it hopes to open for horticultural therapy services that will complement its traditional methods. In addition, it is actively developing a tea garden for clients, which it will incorporate in its speech therapy, occupational therapy, and music therapy sessions. However, its largest project comes in the form of two workshops focusing on Autism and ADHD that it will be running in December. Contact: Louisa Ong Company: Tilegne Therapy Web Address: www.

The company truly cares about each and every one of its customers, in turn, striving to cultivate a welcoming and pleasant shopping experience. Furthermore, the customer service process is optimised and streamline, making it quick and easy for its clients to contact the team with any questions. Ultimately, the very essence of NaturoBest is its devotion to ensuring a healthy pregnancy, for which it endeavours to constantly promote and educate its clients about. Nikki Warren, the founder of NaturoBest, found herself drawn to naturopathy after an unpleasant experience with hormonal birth control, polycystic ovarian syndrome, and morning sickness. Gaining a Diploma in Naturopathy, an Advanced Diploma in Herbal Medicine and a Bachelor of Health Science, her studies involved extensive research into morning sickness, from which she discovered information that she had not yet heard during her five years of working as a fertility naturopath. It was during her second pregnancy that Warren designed and, subsequently, had produced a prenatal vitamin that also reduced morning sickness. Henceforth, in 2016, NaturoBest and Prenatal Trimester One with Ginger was launched to unprecedented success. In addition, in 2020 Nikki was nominated for and won the AusMumpreneur Product Design Award and Health and Wellbeing Award. The popularity of the company is reflected greatly within its reviews – the company has received a near five-star rating on its Facebook page, a five-star rating on Trustindex, and has amassed a following of 11 thousand on Instagram. One customer, known as Jess Middlebrook, commented, ‘NaturoBest works, I feel well on it and I don’t need to take extra supps [sic.], because everything is in the one formulation/ product.’ Additionally, Emma Bellamy perfectly summed the company and Nikki up with, ‘What I particularly love about Nikki’s products is that she’s taken the time to research exactly what different stages of pregnancy requires rather than the blanket approach some other companies take.’ Whilst the company certainly does not claim to be a cure-all product, it has clearly made a positive impact on the lives of those who use its products. 2022 is set to be a busy year, capitalising off the company’s previous success, and is filled with a plethora of exciting new products and projects. This year will see the release of an innovative new range of supplements, and some herbal formulations, which have been developed utilising Nikki’s vast expertise.

16 APAC / Australian Enterprise Awards 2022 , With reviews containing words such as ‘impressive,’ ‘brilliant,’ and ‘dedicated,’ it is abundantly clear that Ford &Doonan –Midland is the premier company for a high-quality air conditioning and instillation service. Customers across the area have been left in awe. Indeed, for a ‘highly recommended’ service, Ford &Doonan –Midland is the right choice. Ford & Doonan has been operating since 1985 and has expanded over the years to host numerous Franchises across WA. As of 2022, the company maintains ten franchises in Perth and two company store across Western Australia, with multiple specialist divisions and service departments. The Midland franchise opened in 2012 under the management of Scott Watson. Subsequently, the branch has grown from two office staff and two contractors to six office staff and four contractor installations teams. Winning numerous accolades since its founding, including Ford and Doonan’s Franchise of The Year and the Fastest Growing Franchise of the Year award three times, the branch’s success can be attributed to its drive. Indeed, Ford & Doonan – Midland strives for success, devoting itself entirely to its work. Moreover, taking a client-centric approach has ensured that the branch is able to meet its customers’ needs and requirements, further bolstering its growth. It is a design and installation comfort solutions provider, who has many happy customers – many of whom have become regulars, or even friends of the company. Furthermore, the dynamics within the company have created a workplace that thrives upon efficient communication and, most importantly, respect. This, of course, begins with Scott Watson, who believes that his behaviour should act as an example for the rest of the staff. The way in which he treats contractors and his staff, and the way he speaks with customers serve as a clear representation of what is expected from the team. In addition, the team works collaboratively, leaning on each other for support both in and outside of the workplace. As the team all live relatively close to each other, a sense of camaraderie has developed over the years, cultivating a great amount of trust, reliability, and true friendship. Henceforth, Ford & Doonan – Midland has benefitted from stability, seeing a low staff turnover rate. It has maintained its three core staff members and has, in essence, built itself up around them. Whilst part of its success could be attributed to sheer luck, the main credit is its dedication to playing to its strengths whilst working together as a team. Additionally, the franchise constantly reviews and updates its processes and promotes a positive problemsolving approach both in the office and on-site. However, the company doesn’t forget to have fun – whenever it reaches a milestone, the team orders in a range of food from their favourite Japanese takeaway. On the flip side of the coin, the Covid-19 pandemic has had an enormous impact on the company. As more people are staying home comfort has become a priority, coupling this with the introduction of government grants, the rise in demand for air conditioning has seen an influx of business for Ford & Doonan – Midland. In turn, this increase has, at times, made it difficult to get equipment, hire and retain staff and contractors, and maintain some regularity to pricing. As the branch continues to progress, it has been developing plans that will enable it to expand its business further. One key element of this long-term strategy is the acquisition of a large, quality build in the Perth property market. However, the overall aim is to continue to satisfy customers, maintaining its reputation for quality.
