A brighter celebration of Auckland business success

A bigger and brighter celebration of Auckland business success

The Auckland Chamber of Commerce and Auckland Tourism, Events and Economic Development (ATEED) announced today they will partner to present the Westpac Auckland Business Awards in 2014.

The Awards will continue to be presented in central, north, south and west Auckland, but will now be presented under a common brand across the entire region and with the backing and expertise of two powerful business networks, the Auckland Chamber of Commerce and ATEED.

Chief executives Michael Barnett of Auckland Chamber of Commerce and Brett O’Riley of ATEED believe consistency across the Awards process will bring additional prestige to the winners and will allow firms to benchmark across the wider region.

Brett O’Riley says: “Collaboration is a fundamental principle at ATEED, and we are delighted to formalise our partnership with the Chamber for this year’s Awards and into the future.”

“Together, we are committed to Awards based on judging criteria which reward and foster innovation and excellence, and will help to grow the high-tech and export-ready economy which Auckland needs.”

Michael Barnett says it is important for companies to realise the Awards are about “celebrating business excellence – which is a business’ ability to ride out tough times and capitalise on the opportunities”.

“This year’s Awards will give applicants the chance to benchmark their systems and processes with the most successful companies across all of Auckland. The guidance from our facilitators, and engagement with the judging panel will also offer businesses the chance to learn from others who have gone through similar challenges,” says Michael Barnett.

“These Awards will recognise resilience, innovation, and the essential principles of business success.”

The dates for the Award presentations and full details of the application process and judging panel will be announced in April.

Professor Ian Shirley: The Budget That Failed Auckland

The 2016 budget offered Auckland nothing in the way of vision or hope and it continued the National Government’s threats against the Auckland Council. Threatening the Council with over-riding its democratic processes if it fails to release land for housing is a bullying tactic aimed at diverting attention away from the fundamental problems with housing in the region.
