The 2015 GBEA presentation night was held at the Arena on Thursday 20 August 2015. The night was extremely successful and all attendees made very positive comments in relation to the MC of Denis Walter and the new venue of the Arena.
There were 20 awards up for grabs by the entrants with the main Business of the Year award being won by S C Technology. This was an amazing win for Rob and Julie Hunter after winning the Commercial Service Medium business award earlier in the night and also being their first year as entrants into the awards. The independent judging panel felt they were an amazing business and unanimously voted for them to win the outright award. It was also pleasing to see 2 small businesses being a finalist in the business of the year award being Embroidme and Great Ocean Road Surf Tours.
In relation to the LBW Chartered Accountants Large Business award, this was won by the Select Group.
The principals of LBW believe these awards are very positive for all businesses and would recommend that entry in the awards is a worthwhile experience. If you would like further information on the GBEA please contact Kelli Finlayson at the Geelong Chamber of Commerce.
