The event was held in the luxurious CQ Melbourne Hotel on Collins St. Melbourne. Rabbi Chaim Herzog welcomed the Audience for their Attendance and Sponsors for their participation in the Gourmet Catered Seudas Purim that was had by the large crowd. He then told the Audience the Purim Story.
A nice large crowd of Bocherem from Yeshivah Gedollah attended and one of them read the Megillah.
This year’s guest speaker was Mr. Alan Belkin.
Nearly 1 million Australian households have been positively impacted by Alan Belkin’s creations. At 27 years-of-age, this businessman and visionary has already achieved so much. The story though, is far from its end, as he advises and trains entrepreneurs around the country, to guaranteed success.
Alan Belkin’s story has humble beginnings as the Australian born son of Soviet Union Dissidents.
Publicly schooled, Alan was a Melbourne University early leaver, dead-set on making it as a young entrepreneur.
He founded “Electricity Wizard” with a $20,000 personal bank loan in 2010, a business that is now the Number 2 online comparison site for electricity and gas in Australia!
By 23 years of age he had his first multi-million-dollar business, in just 8 years of entrepreneurship total, he has established 6 businesses, employed over 500 Australians, and worked with many companies from the ASX Top 100.
The audience loved the story that Mr Belkin portrayed and we wish Rabbi Herzog much continued sucess and hatzlocha in all his future undertakings.
