International Award for … Hinterland’s Feng Shui Master

Master George Bennis The Feng Shui AdvantageMALENY-BASED GEORGE BENNIS, Queensland’s only Chinese Certified Feng Shui Master has won an international award for his Feng Shui skills.

George received the Association of Feng Shui Consultants (international) award for “Best Residential Case Study” at the inaugural Feng Shui Excellence Awards.

George’s win was for his work on a home at Currumbin Waters on the Gold Coast – a residential building design for a young professional couple.

The inaugural awards were held in Melbourne last month to coincide with Chinese new Year and they were judged by an expert panel of five international judges including Interior designer Valerie Mack.

“It is really exciting to be able to work with clients from the very beginning of a home design,” says George. “Starting with advice on which property would be suitable for them, then working with the architect on the design, placement and orientation of the home”.

George was fortunate in that the client was the architect of the home and her husband who is a natural therapies practitioner. “They absolutely love their home as it was tailor-made to match their occupations, hobbies and lifestyle, says George, who used his master level Feng Shui techniques.

“Since moving into the home”, added George with delight, “my client has had a four hundred per cent increase in her hourly rate and won best “Unit development in Queensland” award. Her husband has pioneered a new natural therapy and given a keynote speech to an international conference on natural therapies.”

“It’s an honour to win the award and being recognised for my expertise by my peers,” George said.

Many Maleny residents have benefited from George’s expertise including the design and layout of The River School’s new admin centre, library and classrooms.

“I love working with clients from the beginning, when I advise on what property to look for, how to orientate the home to match their birth details and how to layout the rooms,” says George. “I become part of the creative team, and we can really achieve great results. When a building is already built, the Feng Shui is already set in place, then I explain how to make the best of what is already there.”
