Dolphinworxs’ placed for the future

Our CEO Stephanie Gaddin has been launched into the global arena!  Her predictions for Print in 2015 were quoted in one of the top global resources to the Print and Integrated Marketing Service community.


Steph was interviewed by Deborah Corn, Principal and Chief Blogger for Print Media CentrTM, host of The PrinterverseTM   and #PrintChat and founder of the largest print group on LinkedIn, Print Production Professionals. Steph is honoured to have her views listed amongst those of key people in the global Print and Marketing industry including Senior Editors, Marketing Directors, Social Media Guru’s and even a Chief Arborist, and an Evangelist.

What’s most exciting is the bright future for Print MIS systems like Dolphinworxs in assisting the Print industry to prosper and grow.

In fact, Steph states that the already strong market for software products in printing is a good indicator that the Print industry is not dying.

Dolphinworxs has positioned itself well for the future.

Combining work and play for a good cause

Often we are presented with an opportunity to do something good – like fundraise, or contribute to a charity, in the company of our peers.

Just last week, the Dolphin executive team bought tickets to an event arranged and sponsored by BJ Ball, in support of the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

Highlights of the evening include being regaled with AFL and VFL stories by David King , listening to Brigitte Duclos interview a cancer survivor , and a wine glass that magically filled itself each time I turned away . Those servers at the Sandringham Yacht club are part Ninja.

Really great to meet the Bambra Press gang , all looking very supportive with their pink shirts , or pink ties, and the lovely Vicky and Co from Australian Paper.

And of course meeting and having a moment to chat with the gracious Catherine Doggett about International Print Day was just spectacular.
