We would like to wish all of our employees, partners and customers a happy and healthy 2011.
A big thank-you in particular to all who assisted us in our Market Research activities just before the Christmas Break. Of the 25 specific survey requests we sent out across the 3-categories we had 24 genuine responses which is pretty remarkable given the surveys were issued in the 10-days leading up to Christmas. I trust it didn’t interfere with anyone’s Christmas shopping.
Jason and I were very grateful for your time in providing the input. All of the information provided from the survey responses has been assessed and was used as an input to a series of workshops leading up to the break. It is now being used to assist business model planning and validation in January and we expect to be in a position to provide an update on the initiative in early February via this forum.
In addition to assisting Common Vision, the survey respondents also indirectly assisted disadvantaged children. Due to the responses of the survey participants, Common Vision was pleased to donate $150 to the Starlight Foundation www.starlight.org.au on Christmas Eve. “The Starlight Children’s Foundation is part of the Australian Children’s Charities Forum, a group of national children’s charities dedicated to directly helping seriously ill, disabled or disadvantaged children.”
