2020 Kalamunda Chamber of Commerce Business Excellence Awards

 

Now in its 14th year the 2020 Business Excellence Awards is the flagship event on the Kalamunda Chamber of Commerce's annual calendar.

The Awards recognise success, exceptional skills and innovation within the greater Kalamunda business community.

The Awards represent an opportunity for business to showcase their achievements and set goals for future business planning.

The Awards are a time to acknowledge, recognise and reward the outstanding businesses and business people within our community and to celebrate how we work together to elevate Kalamunda as an excellent place to do business.

This year's award categories are still under review but as a guide, last year's awards covered:

  • NEW BUSINESS OF THE YEAR (Less than two years old)
  • MICRO BUSINESS OF THE YEAR (1 – 4 employees)
  • SMALL BUSINESS OF THE YEAR (5 – 20 employees)
  • MEDIUM/LARGE BUSINESS OF THE YEAR (more than 20 employees)
  • COMMUNITY SPIRIT AWARD
  • OUTSTANDING CUSTOMER SERVICE AWARD
  • STAFF TRAINING AND DEVELOPMENT

  • KALAMUNDA FARMERS MARKET - BEST STALLHOLDER
  • PRESIDENT’S AWARD

  • YOUNG ENTREPRENEUR OF THE YEAR AWARD

Winners of six award categories, New, Small and Medium Businesses, Environmental and Tourism Businesses, and Business Woman of the Year, benefitted from the opportunity to enter the East Metropolitan Regional Council’s (EMRC) Business Exemplar Project. The Business Exemplar Project promotes exemplary businesses within the six EMRC member councils of Kalamunda, Mundaring, Swan, Bayswater, Bassendean and Belmont. Participants were able to receive assistance to raise their business profile though strategic marketing and promotion, giving wider opportunities for exposure and recognition in Perth metro, whilst increasing the value of local business support services.

 


Award winners were also honoured with a commemorative plaque to put on display, along with a digital logo for use on email and digital documentation. Award winners also gained press coverage in the Echo News, and promotion via the Kalamunda Chamber of Commerce social media channels and communications.

 

Entry to the 2020 awards scheme is open to all businesses that operate within the City of Kalamunda boundaries, including non-for-profit organisations. Businesses need to have been in operation for at least 12 months to be eligible. You do not need to be a member of the Kalamunda Chamber of Commerce to enter the awards. However, entry to the awards is free for Chamber of Commerce members.

 

We have created this online tutorial to assist you to prepare the best submission you possibly can.



Our panel of judges is selected from various business support organisations and are not local. They are unbiased professionals who volunteer their expertise to judge the submissions. We hope you dazzle them with your entries this year.

Winning an award can be incredibly beneficial to your business, which can be used to elevate your organisation and employees above your competitors. All winners receive a plaque and editorial coverage with our media partner Echo News. The Chamber will also promote your business via our various channels. So what’s to lose?
