Benefits of Entering

The Sunshine Coast Business Awards recognises business success in our region. The benefits of entering this prestigious program include:

REVIEW – This is your chance to review your planning and work on your business. It’s a great opportunity to stop and see just how far you’ve come!

TEAM BUILDING – Invite your staff to contribute their ideas and perspectives. Work on your application as a collaborative project. It’s a wonderful way to foster engagement and a positive, inclusive culture. And the enthusiasm it creates is contagious!

RECOGNITION – How hard have you and/or your staff worked to get to where you are now? When was the last time you received meaningful recognition? Earning recognition for your business from your peers helps build pride and a sense of achievement for you and your team.

Connecting to Program Sponsors, successful businesses, business development specialists, media representatives and new connections all contribute to strengthening your business future.
