Man has it been a busy few months for Business Changing clients – so many wins, awards, progressions and media! I’ve tried to sum them all up here, but if I’ve missed you out, please shout! Very proud of you all!
THE ENGINE ROOM won a flood of awards in the Metro Top 50 this year, as usual: did you know they have won the same category every year since they opened 11 years ago?! That’s huge! All because their fit-out and service is so friendly and welcoming and their food is simply brilliant. This year they won Best Neighbourhood Bistro; made finalist for Best Service and Peugeot People’s Choice Award for Auckland’s Favourite Dish: their double-baked goats’ cheese soufflé.
