IT is time for Yanchep and Butler businesses to enter this year’s City of Wanneroo Business Awards.

With categories recognising trades services, start ups, home-based businesses, customer service, tourism, hospitality and many more, there is a category to suit any business.

Diane Hedges from Authentic Additions said entering the business awards last year was the biggest business lesson of their careers to date.

“It re-iterated the things we do day in, day out, without even thinking about it, and just simply assuming everyone knows about it,’’ she said.  “It has compounded our goals and values as a family, a partnership, and a business.’

Wanneroo Business Association business liaison officer Lauren Bell encourages any business based within the City of Wanneroo to enter the awards, which is in its 15th year.

She said the exposure a business gained from being announced as a finalist was priceless.

To be eligible for entry, a business must have a registered Australian Business Number (ABN) and have been operating in the City of Wanneroo for at least six months prior to the awards presentation evening.
Or have been a member of the Wanneroo Business Association for more than six months prior to the awards presentation and able to demonstrate commitment to the City of Wanneroo business community (for example through service provision or local staffing).

The awards evening which will take place on Friday, November 16 at True North in Merriwa.

Entries are open until noon Monday, October 29.
