I was browsing the Waitakere Enterprise site last week and spotted this page
There is paragraph there that mentions a few of the winners of these awards -
"For the last 15 years, the Westpac Waitakere Business Awards has honoured local companies, their people and their extraordinary achievements in business. Your name could be among the likes of Babich Wines, Belly Beyond, Phoenix Organics, and Douglas Pharmaceuticals"
Say what??? Belly Beyond??? I almost fell off my chair to be included in such amazing business company!
Last year, we won the Best Small Business 2009 and made the finals in the Marketing Excellence category (which we lost out to the fantastic wine brand Te Henga The Westie).
So this year we've entered again, although not in the category we won which isn't allowed, and we have gotten the good news that we've been selected as a Finalist in the Marketing Excellence and in the Young Business Person of the Year! We get to add two of these little badges to our email signature and the hard work really begins.
