23 September 2014
Patrick Power, Managing Director of PowerHealth Solutions, has been awarded a $20,000 grant by the Industry Leaders Fund (ILF) to attend the Owner/President Management Program at the Harvard Business School.
Since establishing PowerHealth in 1995, Patrick has spearheaded the company's growth, creating 60 highly skilled local jobs and generating wealth for the State economy. The Harvard Business School program will provide a springboard for Patrick to drive another significant growth chapter at PowerHealth Solutions.
The Industry Leaders Fund is private sector Non-Government Organisation educational grant provider that identifies future industry leaders and invests in their development and realisation of their potential to enhance South Australian prosperity.
Successful recipients receive grants of up to $50,000 each to further develop their skills at nominated best practice places on the job, at other work places or at training organisations.
The ILF Awards Ceremony was held at the National Wine Centre on Monday 15th September 2014 to award 33 emerging South Australian business leaders grants worth a total of $392,000 to achieve their professional potential.
The winners were selected from a field of 81 applications, an increase of almost 50% on the number of applications received in 2013. This growth is a testament to the profile of the ILF, and most importantly the demand for a targeted program to support industry leadership in South Australia to give the State an internationally competitive edge.
Chairman of the PowerHealth Solutions Board, Mr Daryl Stillwell said, "We are very proud of Patrick’s achievements both as a multi-award winning entrepreneur and in driving with our Board, Executive team and staff the sustained growth of our business. With a continued focus on delivering the very best outcomes for our customers, Patrick’s latest achievement in winning the Industry Leaders Fund grant will further strengthen his already excellent executive skills and provide a springboard for his and our Company’s next era of success."
