Revolution IT once again shows why they are one of BRW.’s Great Places to Work by giving their staff an opportunity to release their inner filmmaker, get creative, and try for one million dollars worth of travel.

Revolution IT Director Jamie Duffield discovered a competition called The Million Dollar Memo and thought that it would be a fun way to bring the staff together, reward them for their hard work and help Queensland recover after the devastating floods. The Million Dollar Memo, run by Tourism Queensland, involves companies making a one minute advertisement highlighting why their company is a great place to work and why they should win the offered one million dollars worth of travel to Queensland.

Revolution IT’s hilarious video, devised by Scriptwriter/Creative Director Alicia Hibberd, centres around company director Hamish Leighton being unable to understand why people think that IT is boring. Verity Prout, one of Revolution IT’s Business Development Managers, poses as a lab technician and carries out a series of experiments which draw the conclusion that the only way to make IT exciting is to take it to Queensland. Highlights definitely include one over-enthusiastic puppy that makes keeping a straight face near impossible.

Mr Leighton says that everyone in the Melbourne office really enjoyed participating in the video. He feels that, “participating in the Million Dollar Memo competition is a great opportunity to promote Revolution IT and help to get Queensland back on its feet”.

Since their video made it onto the shortlist all staff have been distributing the video to friends and family encouraging them to vote so that they can move into the finals. In the finals a representative from each of twenty companies selected will fly up to Queensland to take part in a week-long series of challenges to impress a panel of judges who will decide the winner of the one million dollars worth of travel.
