Business Awards

Entries are now closed for the 2019 Telstra and Southern Grampians Shire Business Awards. The Awards represent an opportunity to benchmark your business, to assess your business processes and to identify what makes your business outstanding.

The awards welcomes back Telstra as our naming rights sponsor and are again proudly supported by the Ace Radio Network and Hamilton Spectator. This ensures the Awards are heavily focused on being a business development opportunity. Kevin Bennett will again be the sole judge ensuring independent professional judging. Kevin visits all entrants and returns to provide written feedback.

The awards provide a framework for peer recognition which fosters a culture for business development excellence, leadership and innovation. The awards process is heavily focused on being a business development opportunity for all entrants
The entry form allows a structured process of self- assessment and each business is interviewed by a single, independent professional judge and provided with written feedback. All entrants will be invited to attend a post awards meeting with the judge to discuss issues identified by the judge during the awards process, and offer suggestions for improvement.

The countdown is on to unveil the winners at the highly anticipated 2019 Telstra Southern Grampians Business Awards.

Tickets are on sale now for the gala presentation evening being held at the Hamilton Performing Arts Centre on Friday 18th October.
