The Awards represent an opportunity to benchmark your business, to assess your business processes and to identify what makes your business outstanding.

The awards welcome back Telstra as our naming rights sponsor and are again proudly supported by the Ace Radio Network and Hamilton Spectator. The Awards are heavily focused on being a business development opportunity.

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.
