Last Friday I attended the West Coast Leading Light Business Excellence Awards. These Awards are driven by Development West Coast and a highly committed group of Sponsors. The Canterbury Employers’ Chamber of Commerce is proud to have provided the template for the Awards and on-going assistance and judging input as required.
The Awards Dinner was held at Shanty Town, a magic facility for such an event, guaranteeing a great night on the Coast. Driving from Christchurch to Greymouth on a beautiful Autumn day through some of the most spectacular scenery in New Zealand was a great way to set myself up for a night of positive affirmation and celebration. The finalists and winners on the night were exemplars of South Island Business. There are examples of best practice right across the business spectrum on the Coast and they were certainly on display last Friday.
It was a privilege to be amongst them all last Friday and a reminder that our own Champion Canterbury Awards are now at the entry stage.
If you haven’t enjoyed the magic of the West Coast offering for a while, I would strongly recommend a weekend out, to be updated on what a special part of the world it is, with a lot of very special businesses.
