Pic­tures: Matt Jelonek d452628 BEL­MONT small busi­nesses that are “hav­ing a go and achiev­ing great­ness in their pre­ferred fields” are be­ing en­cour­aged to take part in the re­gion’s 23rd an­nual Small Busi­ness Awards.

The awards were launched at the City of Bel­mont Civic Cen­tre last Wed­nes­day.

Bel­mont Busi­ness En­ter­prise Cen­tre chief ex­ec­u­tive Carol Han­lon said it could help small busi­nesses build their pro­files and brand aware­ness.

“En­ter­ing the awards of­fers an op­por­tu­nity for small busi­nesses to pro­mote them­selves and eval­u­ate their busi­ness from a va­ri­ety of per­spec­tives,” Ms Han­lon said.

“Es­tab­lish­ing your­self as an award-win­ning or­gan­i­sa­tion is a great way to mo­ti­vate your staff, im­prove re­la­tion­ships with cus­tomers and sup­pli­ers, and strengthen your po­si­tion in the in­dus­try.”

The 12th De­signedge In­no­va­tion Festival 2016 was also launched at the event. It will in­clude a WA De­signer Pa­rade and the Spirit of the Streets Choir.
