🗓 November BHA Event: An inspirational story of imagination – The Novafast Holdings Group Story – the innovative use of technical advanced composite materials in the energy, oil, gas, mining, water and defence sectors in design, engineering and construction.🗓

🎙 For our November Event event, we have the honour of having Charles Figallo as our guest speaker. He will be presenting “ An inspirational story of imagination”. 

⚡️Presentation Description⚡️

One of Australia’s most successful entrepreneurs – Chev Charles Figallo OAM OSJ presents his fascinating journey on how he built a small engineering business from scratch to an internationally recognised powerhouse.

Charles started his career in engineering, never expecting to be in the business of composite materials. He is self-taught and his company, Novafast Holdings, is highly respected globally in the field of technical engineering using composite materials to offset chemical electrolysis. 

Charles travels to some of the most remote and dangerous places in the world consulting on projects. 

He will explore the importance of imagination in business. He has been an inspiration to others think outside the box. Drawing on his many experiences in composite materials, he will present real world examples of how he used his active imagination to create opportunities for growth and success. He will also discuss critical processes used to enhance the durability of products and reduce costs. 

He will share how he has created products that have made a difference the world over. This promises to be a talk that will inspire and motivate attendees to use their own imaginations to create something new and innovative. This is a rare opportunity to hear from a highly regarded businessman that State Governments, the Defence Industry and many international business icons continue to seek his advice.

Charles credits his success to his childhood experiences. He believes that if you can dream it, you can achieve it. And he strives to instill that same sense of possibility in others through his work. 

Charles’ story is one of determination and perseverance in the face of seemingly insurmountable challenges. He is an excellent example of what can be achieved if you are willing to work hard and follow your dreams.

The presentation will take the form of an interview by local radio and media personality Mark Aiston. This is an event not to be missed.
