Small Business Festival Victoria

During the course of August DCC participated in the Small Business Festival Victoria hosting a range a seminars throughout regional cities including Shepparton, Bendigo and Geelong.

Topics included ‘How Secure Is Your Brand Online?’ presented by Cheryl Hrvoj, Sally Foreman and Elizabeth Godfrey and ‘Maximise Your Intellectual Property’ presented by Mark Roberts and Cheryl Hrvoj.     

We had fantastic turn out at all three seminars.  These events help DCC to develop and enhance its relationships within the communities of regional Victoria.

6th International NanoMedicine Conference (ACN)

DCC was a proud sponsor of the 6th International NanoMedicine Conference 2015 which took place at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Coogee Beach, NSW between 6-8th July 2015.  This event is now the most significant regular nanomedicine conference in the southern hemisphere.

In attendance representing DCC were Mark Roberts, Dan Berger and Grace Chan.

Our team look forward to the 7th International NanoMedicine conference in 2016.

48th Annual AIFST Convention

DCC was represented by Paula De Bruyn, John Hughes and Gavin Recchia at the annual AIFST National Convention; the premier food technology conference in Australia for industry, research and government organisations. The convention was held at Sydney’s famous Luna Park between the 11-13th August 2015.

The three day program covered the big ideas and latest thinking on Australia’s role in catering for the world’s growing population. There were also interactive workshops on food labelling, verification and validation of shelf life and an all day workshop for food industry entrepreneurs.


Each year DCC has a strong representation from our Sydney office in the annual City2Surf fun run, and 2015 was no different.  Our corporate team entry provides the opportunity for the partners and staff to run together in a social environment outside work hours while at the same time raising money for local charities.

City2Surf is a popular road running event held annually in Sydney, Australia covering a 14 kilometres course from the city centre to the famous Bondi Beach. The event attracts more than 80,000 entrants who start in staggered groups.

On November 15 it’s the turn for DCC’s Melbourne office when members of the firm participate in the sister event, the City2Sea 2015.  Over 25 DCC runners are registered to compete and are in the midst of training to prepare themselves for the 15 km course from the city to bayside St. Kilda. Let’s hope that unlike last year there is some fine and mild weather for the event.
