The 2022 Muscular Dystrophy Tasmania Whisky Tasting Fundraiser was held at Hadley's Orient Hotel recently and featured some of the world's finest whiskies made by world renowned Tasmanian Distilleries.
It was an incredible success for MDT and Reilience were there to capture every moment. Here's the resulting video:
Resilience were approaced to produce an Online video for Transport for New South Wales explaining safety in the work place.
Here it is - we're very happy with the result, what do you think?
Social Media Video
Social Media Video
It's been awhile since we've posted but we certainly haven't been idle. Our social media guy may have fallen asleep at the wheel but Resilience Marketing have been busier than ever, creating quality video, web, print content for our clients and given the best TikTok hashtags for their publications.
Renshaw Stone are one such client.
Elliot and Annie are longstanding friends and supporters of Resilience Marketing and we have recently completed a 30second Television Commercial and two Corporate web videos for them. They too are experiencing an upturn in business and when you see the quality stone products they supply you'll quickly understand why.
Drop in and see them at their showroom at 18 Sunderland Street, Moonah for some wonderful examples of stone benchtops for kitchens, bathrooms and other purposes.
Here's the videos:
Look out for Pepperce Sauce in quality grocers near you. This sauce is seriously delicious and the back story is as Tasmanian as it gets:
After more than 10 years of date nights frequenting a local pub with a dangerously good pepper sauce, Stuart set out to recreate the insatiable flavour that the sauce delivered.
More than 30 years later, Pepperce was born; Stuart's own version of the sauce that was shared over decades of dinners, drinks and good times.
Looks can be deceiving, make no mistake, this is a complex blend of no fewer than 5 peppers in the recipe and we balance and refine the ingredients to deliver a restaurant quality product in your own home.
Offering both great value for money and great taste, being the last one to the gravy boat and missing out will be a thing of the past.

Here's a look at some recently completed short videos and accompanying posters highlighting respect in the workplace for Rural Business Tasmania.
Guilford Young College have been a client of ours for a while now and we've been getting their message of exceptional student achievement in their studies, careers, sporting and cultural pursuits and service to the community, in the only Catholic secondary college in Tasmania.
The College is dedicated to the memory of Archbishop Sir Guilford Young who served the people of Tasmania for 34 years as Archbishop of Hobart from 1955 until 1988. Guilford Young College opened its doors in February 1995, having been established by the Archdiocese of Hobart, the Christian Brothers, The Dominican Sisters, the Salesians of Don Bosco, the Sisters of Charity and the Sisters of St Joseph of the Sacred Heart. Its creation fulfilled the vision, originally articulated by Archbishop Sir Guilford Young, to build a Catholic senior secondary college in southern Tasmania.
The College has an outstanding reputation in education and service to Tasmanian society and Resilience have completed their web site and several web based videos to help articulate this to the Southern Tasmanian Community.

The 2019 Salvation Army Sleepout was another huge success and Resilience Marketing were there to record it.
The plight of homeless people is never better illustrated than by a group of successful people actually experiencing a small taste of what they go through on a daily basis.
Imagine sleeping rough and hungry most nights in Hobart in the dead of winter. That's the reality for an increasingly large group of Hobart's forgotten people. Forgotten by most anyway - not the Salvos. They're out there every night seeking out the homeless, offering a feed, support, a friendly ear and if possible shelter.
The sleepout is a wonderful initiative, not only is it a major fundraiser to help the Salvos continue their work with the homeless but it also raises awareness of and empathy for a group of people who find themselves on the edges of society, often through a series of unfortunate circumstances which could befall many of us.
Thanks to the Salvos for inviting us to come along and capture the night and produce the video for them.
The Globe Hotel is in its 180th year, having first been established in 1839.
To put this in perspective, Ikey Solomon was still walking the streets of Hobart, Texas was still part of Mexico and Charles Darwin was 20 years away from publishing 'The Origin of the Species'.
Like Hobart, the Globe Hotel has changed a lot in that time. Ikey and his peers would not recognise the place today. Its colonial past made way in 1937 and the hotel was demolished in it's 99th year and a more modern establishment built. No doubt within its walls in either incarnation there would be many a tale of tragedy, triumph, derring doo and momentous local and world events that have transpired over time.
Now the hotel is a social hub for the South Hobart and greater Hobart community, a great place to unwind over a drink with friends. You can also have a meal in the dining room or bar, have a flutter, grab a bottle of wine or a six pack or watch the game on their big screens.
Whilst respectful of it's past, the Globe has recently undegone major renovations, has revamped its bar, loung and bottleshop, and has modernised all hotel spaces while maintaining an authentic hotel experience for patrons.
You can check out the spaces here as part of a virtual tour developed by Resilience Marketing: https://www.theglobehotelhobart.com.au/hotel-spaces/
Resilience also developed new branding and a new web site for the Hotel: https://www.resilience.com.au/project/globe-hotel/
Well the future of my back anyway!
I spend upwards of 7 hours every day with my backside parked on a chair, looking at a computer screen and am slowly realising that things in my little home office need to change.
The concept of Ergonomics isn't new. It was first discussed by Polish professor Wojciech Jastrzebowski in 1857 - that's Polish as in the country Poland, not the study of Mr Sheen.
By the turn of the last century employers were starting to take the concept a bit more seriously. Most occupations were labour intensive and injury and death rates were high resulting in a lot of down time and reduced profits. Well heeled toffs were becoming slightly less well heeled toffs and something had to be done.
Work processes came under the spotlight, were reviewed and improved, restoring profits and allowing the toffs to resume buying one or two additional polo ponies a season.
Thus the OH&S industry was born and slowly evolved into the work practices we have today.
Anyway, back to my back - which is making me feel every one of my 50+ years and looks like a question mark when I eventually rise from my circa 1980 chair until it cracks like a rifle shot when I straighten up.
I'm sure if a OH&S guru came and checked out my situation they'd take me out the back and take a sledgehammer to me - arguing it'd be quicker and less painful than the damage I'm inflicting on myself.
Here comes the segue!
Or they'd take me to Flair Office Furniture and select appropriate furniture and office accessories to correct my posture. Think I prefer the second option! Make sure to visit their site to choose your favorite styles and redecorate your space at home.
The good people at Flair have been fantastic clients of Resilience Marketing for a while now and we have completed several television commercials for them as well as a corporate video.
Tasmanians are a generous lot. We punch above our weight when it comes to helping those who are temporarily, or in Alexis Downie's case, permanently disadvantaged.
Alexis has Muscular Dystrophy, a group of muscle wasting diseases caused by inheriting some dodgy genes which cause the body to either inhibit proteins needed for normal muscle development or produce toxins that break them down.
One in a thousand people live with the condition under it's various guises. Some are severe, tragically taking young lives early, and some such as the type I have allow people to develop symptoms later in life and only cause mid to minor disability.
One thing is for certain - they are all life altering for the person who drew the short straw and for their loved ones.
We were approached by Muscular Dystrophy Tasmania last year to help publicise their goal of providing a motorised chair for Alexis and a vehicle which was properly fitted to transport Alexis and her chair, as well as her family.
With the generosity of the wonderful John X we developed a television commercial, created a go fund me campaign, revamped their website and negotiated with Television Networks, who were also incredibly generous, to air the commercials.
That's where you, the people of this beautiful state of ours, stepped up.
The response to Alexis and her families plight was overwhelming.
I'm getting quite emotional writing this, maybe because of my personal connection with MD, but more likely because my faith in the goodness of people has been vindicated.
The generosity of spirit, community mindedness and sense of a fair go of the Tasmanian people have allowed Muscular Dystrophy Tasmania to give Alexis's family the keys to a purpose fitted vehicle and more importantly Alexis into a life changing chair.
You've changed a life and that's no small thing.
Guess I'd better explain before an army of exorcists turn up at Buckingham Palace. It's not Queen Liz I'm talking about it's something perhaps more dear to generations of Hobartians.
The Queens Head Hotel in North Hobart is a Hobart institution. It's been standing resolute on a prominent corner in the restaurant strip for decades as other establishments have waxed and waned around it.
Known for great food, cold beer and friendly service - it's the type of place that is modern yet timeless and transforms itself several times a day according to the time and clientele. Busy during lunch and dinner services, a laid back sports bar in between and then it really lets it's hair down as one of the last bastions of live music in Hobart once the diners have left and the musos take the stage.
There are also Tote facilities for those that like a punt and a dedicated pokies lounge.
Beds aplenty are waiting for any weary travelers wanting to stay in the area and sample the myriad of multicultural dining options available a stones throw from the pub. They have 10 comfortable rooms perfect for budget conscious visitors to our beautiful city
Resilience were chuffed to be engaged last year to build an online presence for the hotel and have completed a web site and a series of 360 degree video views of the accommodation options.
Check out the site and the 360 degree room views:
