The media launch of the Forbes Business Awards, BOSCARS, last week created a lot of interest not only from past winners, and participants in the regional awards, but also from many local business owners. The event was hosted by Chairman of the Forbes Business Chamber, Chris Roylance, and launched by Vicki Seccombe of the NSW Business Chamber Orana Region.
Vicki encouraged all businesses to enter and to take time over each entry, not leaving it until the last minute. She recommended that any businesses entering should review the questions related to the category they wanted to enter before deciding if it was the correct category for their business. She also said that when allowing time to go through your entry, ensure that you check and re-read your answers, and to make sure you are selling what your business does and is successful in doing.
There are nine different categories to choose from, and if you need assistance please call anybody on the Chamber committee or Vicki at the NSW Business Chamber office in Orange on 6311 2203. The closing date for entries is 29th August. There is not a lot of time left to start preparing your entry. A panel of independent and respected business leaders from outside the region will judge submissions.
Finalists will be announced on 30th September. Winners will be announced at a James Bond themed Gala Dinner on Friday, 28th October. Start planning to treat your staff to an exciting night out.
