Tips for busi­nesses to en­ter awards

Pilbara News - - News -

The Small Busi­ness De­vel­op­ment Cor­po­ra­tion has de­vel­oped a free on­line work­shop to help small busi­nesses im­prove their chances of win­ning awards.

Small Busi­ness Com­mis­sioner David Ea­ton said par­tic­i­pants could ac­cess the work­shop on­line at any time, where they could watch a video ex­plain­ing how to write a suc­cess­ful award sub­mis­sion by step­ping back and look­ing at their busi­ness with fresh eyes.

“How to write a win­ning awards sub­mis­sion re­veals what judges are look­ing for, how to iden­tify a com­pet­i­tive edge, and how to best present your busi­ness in writ­ing — cre­atively and suc­cinctly,” he said.

Mr Ea­ton said the SBDC had held busi­ness awards events in WA for more than 20 years and many award win­ners had gone on to build suc­cess­ful busi­nesses.

He added win­ning a busi­ness award had many ben­e­fits, in­clud­ing wide­spread pro­mo­tion of the fi­nal­ists and win­ners, more cus­tomers and in­creased prof­its.

“Just the process of entering an awards pro­gram gives you the op­por­tu­nity to stand back, take a good look at your busi­ness from an out­sider’s point of view, and make some im­por­tant changes as needed,” Mr Ea­ton said.

“This on­line work­shop, de­liv­ered by an ex­pe­ri­enced busi­ness ad­viser, can help de­mys­tify the process of entering a busi­ness award pro­gram and set you on the right track to be a win­ner.”
