Flat Planet Malaysia was born.
Matt Cowan Prospecting was born.
Flat Planet attended Cebit Sydney for the first time with a great concept stand and knocked the ball out of the park.
Cebit was not only a great success, but also a great fun, with a small group of our Philippines-based team members flying down to attend the event – they were all given the option of extending for a week afterwards to enjoy a rare holiday ‘down under’ after the week at Cebit.
Flat Planet was then operating in both the Philippines and Malaysia, and has also secured a joint venture with English teleprospecting guru, Matt Cowan, to offer high-value prospecting services to the big end of town.
Later in the year, Judy Horan, our fabulous Regional Manager for Australia, joined Flat Planet as did Brian Butler, our much-loved General Manager who went on to serve for three years.
The strength of the management team continued to grow as GAIA was also continuously being developed.
