Christchurch Company Shows Incredible Growth despite All

Christchurch Company Shows Incredible Growth despite Hardships

It's never easy to grow a business when the community you service is having difficult times. This is the position Beaver Trees and Landscaping was in as natural disasters affected their home of Christchurch, New Zealand.

But despite the problems plaguing the region, Beaver Trees and Landscaping was able to have their best year ever in 2010, which led to the company winning the 2011 Business Excellence Award for Best Overall Company under 50 employees at the Fontainebleau Hotel in Miami, Florida, on August 20.

The 2011 Business Excellence Awards are exclusively tailored for small and medium sized businesses and were given in 16 categories, ranging from Best Startup to Best Overall Company.

Over the last year, the company has increased its overall sales, hitting $1,000,000 in sales for the first time in company history. This accomplishment is even more exceptional considering the state of the economy and a number of natural disasters in this company's home country.

"This is a very emotional win and an extraordinary journey these past 5 years," owner Bryce Robb said, "Many thanks to my coach, Bruce Wilson. Of course I want to give a big thank you to my wife. This is just the start of this journey."

The 2011 Business Excellence Awards are the culmination of the Business Excellence Forum, this year's premier event for small business owners and entrepreneurs. The Forum offered a unique opportunity to discover cutting-edge business strategies from some of the top entrepreneurs, speakers and Business Coaches in the world.

All of the speakers and workshops at the event delivered high-impact and effective business growth information.

The Business Excellence Forum and Awards are sponsored by the world's number one business coaching firm, ActionCOACH. ActionCOACH is in 39 countries coaching 15,000 businesses every week.
