George Herald - - BUSINESS SAKE - Pau­li­ne Lou­rens

The no­mi­na­ti­ons cut-off da­te for the an­nu­al Ge­or­ge Business C­ham­ber's (GBC) Business Per­son of the Y­e­ar 2017 a­ward has been ex­ten­ded to F­ri­day 15 Sep­tem­ber. The a­ward aims to re­cog­ni­se ex­cep­ti­o­nal a­chie­vements in the Ge­or­ge business sec­tor.

The GBC En­tre­pre­neur of the y­e­ar 2017 see­ks to in­spi­re bud­ding en­tre­pre­neurs by e­mu­la­ting and ex­cee­ding the a­chie­vements of tho­se who tra­ver­sed the ro­ad be­fo­re them.

The win­ners will be­ne­fit from re­gi­o­nal and national me­dia ex­po­su­re and the a­wards will be pre­sen­ted at a ga­la functi­on to be held at Ou­baai Ho­tel and Spa on 29 Sep­tem­ber.

Business C­ham­ber ma­na­ger Ing­rid Cron­jé said she has re­cei­ved nu­me­rous calls from mem­bers who ha­ve re­que­sted that the da­te for sub­mis­si­ons of no­mi­na­ti­ons be ex­ten­ded to 15 Sep­tem­ber. She ad­vi­ses that, be­fo­re you o­pen the link and com­ple­te the no­mi­na­ti­on form, you com­ple­te a CV for your no­mi­nee, u­sing the qua­li­fying cri­te­ria as a gui­de­li­ne on which to build the CV. Go di­rect­ly to their web­si­te: http://ge­or­ge­cham­ One of the cri­te­ria is that the no­mi­nee must ha­ve had an im­pact on the com­mu­ni­ty and con­tri­bu­ted to the pri­va­te en­ter­pri­se sy­stem in ways that are an in­spi­ra­ti­on to ot­hers. The per­son must ha­ve con­tri­bu­ted sub­stan­ti­al­ly to the turn-a­round or gro­wth of a business, or ma­na­ged a lar­ger business in a way that has de­mon­stra­ted no­ta­ble en­tre­pre­neu­ri­al cha­rac­te­ris­ti­cs and a­chie­vements.
