Alice Springs man wins Telstra award

 

A business launched by Alice Springs man Christopher Brocklebank (pictured) in 2002 last night won the Micro section of the Telstra NT Business of the Year awards.

 

His venture italklibrary is dedicated to turning written information into stories that can then be spoken in any language and placed online at italklibrary.com

 

“Judges acknowledged the incredible personal story and journey taken by the business owner and were impressed by italklibrary’s business model and outcomes,” says a Telstra media release.

 

Italklibrary has created a national database of stories in multiple languages, including 14 Australian Indigenous languages, and Mr Brocklebank says: “They say a picture speaks a thousand words - our pictures speak a thousand languages.”
