Applications open on the 14th August 2017 and close on 29th September 2017.

We understand that the journey of excellence is different for each business, employee and community organisation.  The 2017 Business Excellence Awards is a free, capacity building program that allows participants to:

  • Perform a ‘business health check’ by submitting an application and assessing their own strengths and weaknesses prior to receiving feedback from our esteemed panel of judges
  • Be part of a supportive community who are going through a similar journey. Participants will have the opportunity to connect with other entrants at events such as the Application Briefing Sessions.
  • Have the opportunity to be recognised as a finalist or category winner. Businesses who reach this area of the program will receive numerous benefits and elevated profile in the Mareeba community.

The 2017 program is essentially an opportunity for our local businesses to reflect on their current practices and receive recognition for a job well done. During the next few months our aim is to inspire the greater Mareeba community to become more involved in supporting local business.

Whether this be at a grass roots level of simply placing a nomination, buying local or getting a group together to attend the 2017 Go for Gold Celebration; we aim to draw greater awareness to the connections between entrants, local employment, contribution to local education and the overall prosperity of our community.
