Congratulations Kim Edwards: Success Story Woman Wins Top Local Honour

Hi Everyone, Congratulations go out today to Kim Edwards, featured as our Expat Women August Success Story, who last week won one of the most prestigious business awards in her local region. Kim took out the Sunshine Coast Business Woman Of The Year award (Australia) - a much-coveted award which is highly competitive.

The judges commented in the press that:

"Ms Hamer said the judging panel had also been impressed by Ms Edwards' community-minded approach to teaching English around the world.
"The thing that struck me about her was that she considered English was not a privilege, it was a necessity for everyone to have," Ms Hamer said.

"When she went into one country, the English-speaking schools were charging thousands of dollars for people to do their program.

"She said 'we didn't need to charge that, we charged what we charged'. It was about everyone having the opportunity to learn."

Ms Hamer said Ms Edwards would be a wonderful ambassador for the Sunshine Coast Business Women's Network because she was a "personable person"."

Congratulations Kim and congratulations Sea English Academy!
