2016 Shoalhaven Business Awards
Friday 26th August, Shoalhaven Entertainment Centre
The Shoalhaven Business Awards is the region’s most anticipated annual business event.
Just by entering the Awards you are giving yourself the opportunity to review your business operations, reconnect with your vision and strategy, and measure performance against objectives. Many entrants see the Awards as a time for forced self-assessment, which helps keep them accountable to their goals.
You are also giving yourself the opportunity to represent the Shoalhaven in the Illawarra Business Awards, and as we have seen in the past, the State Awards (if you enter an aligned category).
The Awards are about so much more than just winning. In addition to recognising and honouring the most outstanding businesses in the region, they provide an opportunity to celebrate the combined success of the Shoalhaven business community.

Benefits of entering
The benefits of entering the Awards extend well beyond winning and glory. As a process of entering the Awards, you will review your business operations, reconnect with your vision and strategy, and measure performance against objectives. Many entrants see the Awards as a time for forced self-assessment, which helps keep them accountable to their goals.
In 2016 we will be presenting nineteen Awards, including Business of the Year. Of those nineteen Awards, nine are aligned with the Illawarra and NSW Business Awards. Winners of the aligned categories will go on to represent the Shoalhaven as a finalist at the Illawarra Business Awards in October.
In seeking feedback from past Award entrants, we’ve learned that businesses really want assistance with the entry process. So this year we are partnering with University of Wollongong and will be running two Award entry workshops/information sessions.
Our Awards sponsors play an essential role in making the Awards possible. The Shoalhaven Business Chamber would like to thank all Awards sponsors for supporting this important program.
If you are interested in sponsoring the Awards, please contact Miranda Packer, Business Awards Event Manager on 0418885550 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
