BUSINESS Excellence Awards night is an opportunity to recognise and appreciate the invaluable role business plays in our community.
Saturday October, 28 marks the 21st Business Excellence Awards which will be held at the Dalby Showgrounds courtesy of the Dalby Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
With 20 awards given out on the night, 12 of which were nominated for by the public, the Chamber seeks to celebrate individual members and groups within the community who have made a difference in local business.
Tourism and Accommodation, Manufacturing, Rural Operations, Agricultural Services and Business of the Year are just some of the awards up for grabs on the night - which will mean for a hotly contested event with over 70 well-established business’ nominations submitted over 14 categories.
The award system is a meticulous one, of which is centred around the Australian Business Excellence Framework.
The framework assesses businesses upon their leadership, strategy and planning, people, information and knowledge, safety, service delivery, product quality and bottom-line results.
President of the Dalby Chamber of Commerce and Industry Rohan May will be attending the event.
“There will be a judging panel external to Dalby who will visit the businesses, talk to the owners and make a decision based on all the information they gather,” Mr May said.
“With the difficult times Dalby has experienced of late, particularly in the agricultural industry, it’s important to celebrate successful businesses in the community.”
Being the longest running Business Excellence Awards in South-East Queensland, there is a certain level of prestige attached to the night.
Nominations for the BEA are now closed however for those wanting to attend, bookings can be made on the Dalby Chamber of Commerce and Industry website or through the Chamber office.
