Deadline for Submissions to 2015 Business Awards is Two Weeks Away!
October 24th 2014 is the deadline date for submissions to the 2015 St. Lucia Business Awards. 2015 marks the sixth year of celebration of excellence within St. Lucia's Business Community. The Awards reward excellence in various categories and celebrate the best qualities of Corporate St. Lucia. The Business Awards committee continues to seek ways to improve not just the actual Awards ceremony, but more fundamentally the process of the Awards so that it brings even greater reward to those who participate in them.
One major adjustment to this year's celebrations is that the coverage of the Awards was expanded and Public Sector Agencies have been challenged to participate and make submissions to the Awards in the Ease of Doing Business Section. The introduction of this category is most timely considering St. Lucia's change in rank for 2014 World Bank's Doing Business Report.
The Awards target all businesses whether large or small regardless of sector. Businesses, especially the Small to Medium sized categories are encouraged to participate by visiting the Chamber's website at http://www.stluciachamber.org/chamber_business_ awards.php or contacting the Secretariat at 452 3165.
The St. Lucia Business Awards will present awards in fourteen categories. These are: Prime Minister's Award for Innovation, Award for Service Excellence, Entrepreneur of the Year Award, Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award, Business of the Year Award, Goods Exporter of the Year Award, Service Exporter of the Year Award, Award for Excellence in Human Resource Development, Award for Marketing Excellence, Award for Corporate Leadership, Award for Corporate Social Responsibility, Green Award, Idea of the Year Award and Award for Making it Easier to do Business (Public Sector).
The short-listed nominees will be announced by year end and the 2015 St. Lucia Business Awards will take place on January 24th 2015.
