Preparations for the Westpac Northland Business Excellence Awards “Strive, Succeed, Inspire” gala dinner are well underway for 2015 and the NZ Chambers of Commerce Northland is delighted with the number and quality of entries received for the business categories awards.
Business Excellence Awards are run regionally throughout New Zealand, recognising and celebrating the business success of local companies. For businesses going through the awards process it is a way to identify strengths and challenges that exist and find new ways to deal with them through a renewed focus on their business. The process for the 2015 Northland business excellence awards entrants began back in April when entries opened, and includes a tight judging process, a networking evening for entrants and culminates in a black tie formal awards presentation and gala dinner event.
Nominations close this Friday for The Northern Advocate Business Hall of Fame Award which celebrates the achievement of a person within the Northland business community who has made significant contributions to the region by way of service to their industry and the greater Northland community. If you believe you know someone who deserves nominating please forward their details to the Chamber along with a short paragraph as to why they should be inducted before Friday 25th September.
