Regional Entrant Coaching Clinics

To make the process of entering as easy as possible, Entrant Coaching Clinics will be organised to clarify the entry process and provide some insight to what the judges are looking for. The workshops will be run by NorthChamber and Business Coaching New Zealand. All workshops will be held subject to minimum numbers.

The FREE one hour clinic walks prospective entrants through the Awards Guidelines and Entry form, making the entry criteria clear, explaining what the judges are looking for and breaking the sections down into manageable pieces.

This year there are two Awards Coaches to support entrants, Terry Sage and Vicki Moselen from Business Coaching New Zealand. As well as a dedicated Chamber team, whose focus is on supporting entrants through the entry process and ensuring they get the maximum benefit from both the entry process and networking possibilities.
