Established in 1986 and managed by The Geelong Chamber of Commerce, the Geelong Business Excellence Awards recognises organisations that have achieved business excellence in the Geelong region.
"I would highly recommend entering the Geelong Business Excellence Award to any business owner and emerging leader. For me, entering this competition was a fantastic opportunity to take a step back from my business, learn from past experiences and articulate successful case studies applicable to the submission. It forced me to reflect and take a deep dive into many aspects of the business and my personal leadership which allowed me to become a more effective leader, making a larger impact in our local community. The Judging Panel is formed by truly remarkable business leaders who are highly dedicated to this prestigious competition and extraordinarily supportive of the Geelong business community. The feedback I received from my first entry in 2020 was highly valuable and insightful, assisting me to craft a successful application in 2021. Winning three prestigious awards including Business of the Year 2021, has given us the reassurance that we are doing something special, we know we are making a significant impact in our local community, and I am incredibly proud to receive such recognition."
