Entrepreneurial and Agile 

Liz & Fabie’s can-do attitude led them to create the award-winning online learning and support platform in 2015 to address the diverse needs of an industry that is made up of small and micro businesses spread across the country in some of the most remote regions of Australia. Tourism is an industry of industries with business types that range from hospitality to retail to professional services to caravan repairers.  It typifies small business culture and barriers when it comes to leveraging digital technology for improved sales and marketing and operational efficiencies.
DCI is an agile and responsive company demonstrating this acutely in the COVID-19 world when overnight they designed and launched a 12-week Upskill During Lockdown online program to encourage upskilling, connectedness and motivation in a highly distressed industry.  Since commencing the first intake on 30 March 2020, over 600 participants from across the country have benefited from this program.  
They practise what they preach and utilise the lightweight digital tools that they suggest to small business operators to achieve their own business growth through digital marketing and operational efficiency, all suitable to a small nimble business.

This is a natural step in their business journey towards their vision to empower entrepreneurs to have the success they crave and the lifestyle they desire no matter where they are located.
