Enterprise North Shore Chief Executive, Terry Hoskins says compiling an entry is a straightforward process that is achievable for all businesses.
“Entries usually run from just eight to 12 pages and most entrants find the process of compiling them uncomplicated and great for staff morale and teamwork.”
Westpac General Manager, Bruce McLachlan says the awards provide entrants with an opportunity to reflect on their businesses.
“The process of entering is a great opportunity for businesses to evaluate their progress and reflect on their future. It is a valuable exercise for any company and, of course, there is the added bonus of becoming a finalist or a winner.”
Entrants traditionally represent a broad spectrum of businesses ranging from small emerging businesses through to some of North Shore City’s larger companies.
