Reward an exceptional local business and/or local business person?

Why? ‘Cause Deni rocks!

Increased awareness – if you think people should know about your fave business or person a nomination can help introduce then to a wider audience!

Size does not matter – one person companies have the same eligibility to be nominated as a large business!

The feel-good factor– imagine how it makes a local business person feel when they learn they have been nominated and that they are recognised for their hard work!

Encourage leadership – when the spotlight is places on a business or individual who has gone the extra mile it inspires other to strive towards bi goals!

Nominating is easy – on line nominations and all the criteria CLICK HERE  – Fourteen categories to choose from including NEW categories like Excellence in Micro Business, Excellence in Social Inclusion and Outstanding Young Entrepreneur
