Ballarat Beer Festival – January 2018 & January 2019

Pipe Pro Directional Drilling are very pround to be corporate sponsors of the annual Ballarat Beer Festival for the past two years. The Beer Festival is a great day out for all the family to sample craft beers, listen to live music and there is also plenty of fun for the kids. As part of our involvement, Pipe Pro Directional Drilling sponsored the Home Brewing Competition which showcased local brewers. As a added bonus, Jason had the opportunity to take part in the judging and tasting process!

Ballarat Business Women

Since the beginning of 2017 Dannielle has served as a board member of the Ballarat Business Women’s group in Ballarat which holds networking events for local women in business. As part of her volunteer work on the board, Dannielle helps manage the social media aspect of the group, specifically the BBW Instagram account.

‘Owning and running my business full time while being a Mum leaves me very little time to get out and meet new people. Since joining the BBW last year I have found the networking lunches fantastic and I have been inspired by the many wonderful, successful women I have met so far. I wanted to serve on the board to help grow this network of women in the future to continue to support and encourage the business women of Ballarat.’
