Microsoft partner Dynamic Business Technologies (DBT) has acquired Melbourne-based Connect.
This acquisition gives us a further presence in Victoria adding a Melbourne CBD location to our Regional VIC presence in Hamilton. DBT specialises in Microsoft cloud solutions like Azure and and the 365 modern workplace. Connect’s team of three primarily focused across the dental and medical industry.
As a result of the acquisition, Connect founder Mike Collishaw will be joining DBT as the general manager for Victoria.
“COVID-19 has rapidly accelerated the growth of the modern workplace for small and medium businesses across Australia and as a Microsoft partner we’ve been able to help our customers on that journey” managing director of DBT Nathan Franks said.
“Partnering with Connect will allow us to better support our customers in Victoria and grow into the region, expanding on our current presence in Hamilton.”
“Among our network, DBT is a highly regarded partner in the Microsoft community, so the partnership was a no-brainer” Collishaw said.

Rural communities lead new suicide prevention effortSeptember 23, 2020
Media Release: Rural communities lead new suicide prevention effort
People living in farming communities across Victoria’s Great South Coast have a new opportunity to help prevent suicide in their communities. Deakin University’s National Centre for Farmer Health—with funding from the Great South Coast Suicide Prevention Place Based Trial—have recently launched MH4Ag—a project working closely with people in farming communities to develop new ways to improve mental health and prevent suicide.
MH4Ag is currently calling for community members to contribute their experiences to help inform project development. People who have experienced depression or psychological distress, those who have cared for or provided support for people with depression or psychological distress, and community members who want to help address mental health issues in rural areas are encouraged to participate.

#SnapshotRuralVic – A new project from the National Centre for Farmer HealthAugust 4, 2020
#SnapshotRuralVic wants to experience your story, whether it be through photos, videos, poetry or even a song if you so desire! We want to focus the spotlight on you, so we can share in the highs and lows of rural life and hopefully feel a little less isolated and more connected to your community.
This campaign is an exciting step in a new direction for the National Centre for Farmer Health as we turn to social media to connect farmers, creators, thinkers and makers from all over the state. While we might be distanced socially, we want to repair these connections using the universal platform of social media. From photos to memes, Tik Tok’s and haiku’s, we want you to embrace your creativity and in the hopes of making another person laugh, cry or cringe in solidarity. Your imagination will be rewarded with a weekly prize, with the winner chosen by your peers.
This campaign will run from August to October, with submissions being featured daily on Instagram and Facebook, as well as in the National Centre for Farmer Health eNews and website.
