Entering Business Awards is a useful process. It helps you focus on how your business is developing and provides a valuable marketing tool if you become a finalist or winner.
There are many award opportunities – some are specifically for businesswomen, some are industry based and some focus on a particular aspect of doing business, such as export.
Many awards provide an opportunity for local recognition as well as national success. Doing business in the ACT offers opportunities to enter awards and be recognised in the Territory as well as representing the ACT at the national level.
