Free help with 2019 business award entries


The long-standing Deakin University Geelong Business Excellence Awards launches for 2019 in March, with Insight Sessions now open for businesses to learn more about how to enter.

An initiative of Geelong Chamber of Commerce, the free awards information program recognises organisations that have achieved excellence in the region while also giving businesses the opportunity to re-evaluate their processes and re-ignite their focus and passion.

“In 2019 we are delighted to continue our partnership with Deakin University, rated among the top universities in the world, as our naming rights sponsor,” says chamber chief Bernadette Uzelac.

“Open to all size businesses, from home-based entrepreneurs to large-scale corporations, there’s a category for everyone.”

Supatramp, the awards’ 2018 Business of the Year winner, backed the entry process for providing invaluable insight into entrants’ operations.

“The process was invaluable as it allowed us to perform a 360- degree review of our business in addition to receiving external feedback on what we were doing well and what we could improve on,” said Supatramp’s David Schwarz.

“As winners of such a prestigious award, we have seen a significant increase in recognition from fellow businesses and the community, both locally and internationally.”
