Driving Lyndsey's dream
June 7, 2012
Following on from the success of International Food Day, The Cobra Group Foundation contacted Lyndsey and her family with an invitation to host a charity golf day with all the proceeds going to help with her lifelong wish to travel to Vietnam.
This dream of Lyndsey's now means so much more to her after she was recently given the news that her brain tumour had resurfaced and may have as little as three months to live at the terribly young age of twenty-seven.
On June 1, 2012, the Foundation played host to a charity golf day at Wychwood, near Crew. Participants enjoyed a brunch on arrival, a practice session on the driving range and an eighteen hole game followed by an evening dinner, all while helping towards Lyndsey's dream trip.
Lyndsey's family and friends, along with a number of Cobra Group delegates took part in the successful fundraising event, raising, to date, over £2,000 towards Lyndsey's Vietnam adventure.

Marketing is an ever-changing part of any business, and what worked a few years ago may be completely irrelevant today. So, if you’re going to continue to strive for success, be prepared to assess your marketing strategy and adapt accordingly. In saying that, there are some marketing activities that continue to be an effective and measurable way to promote a brand or business, and direct marketing is one of them. In this blog, Appco Australia highlights the unique benefits of direct marketing and how it can get your business closer to your customers.
At Appco Australia, we love it when others succeed and we believe the best business and career ideas stem from passion. In light of Tesla recently winning the South Australian energy storage project (with a bold proposition), we’ve used Elon Musk’s motto of “when something is important enough, you do it even if the odds are not in your favour” as inspiration for our tips for getting lift-off when your next eureka moment strikes.
Emily Seebohm has finally broken Australia’s drought, winning the country’s first gold medal at the 17th FINA World Championships in Budapest. Appco Australia believes her win is a lesson for anyone striving to succeed in or out of the pool.
At Appco Australia, we have a true appreciation for other businesses that reach their full potential. It’s a great way to stay motivated and also learn from other’s success. The story of all-Aussie gourmet muesli business, Carmen’s, reminds us of a common misconception we can all learn from.
There are so many things around us that we take for granted, but make our lives easier. So, in celebration of all things innovative, team members at Appco Australia were asked: “What recent invention has changed your life and why?” Looking at the responses, it seems there's a common mobile-related theme here.
