Highly Commended for New Start Business at the 26th Hunter Region Business Excellence Awards 2019
The Shaw & Bunner team was thrilled to be named as a Finalist in two categories of the 26th Hunter Region Business Excellence Awards 2019 .
The Awards are a little different in that the winners are not determined by popular vote. The judges decide the winners and state that these Awards are valuing and recognizing businesses that are built on viable and sustainable foundations. The judges look at the motivation for starting the business, determination to overcome challenges, innovations and commitment to excellence.
There were 19 categories in total and Shaw & Bunner Legal had entered two of those categories - New Start Business and Professional Services. We were excited to be named as finalists in both categories. The New Start Business category is open to businesses that have been in operation for less than two years.
The Awards culminated in a Gala Dinner at Cessnock on 20 September 2019 when the winners were announced. Attendees on the night were informed of the high standard of nominations and Highly Commended awards were not given in every category but rather those categories where the judges had a difficult time choosing an overall winner. Shaw & Bunner were truly humbled to receive a Highly Commended award for New Start Business on the night.
It was a wonderful opportunity to meet other business owners in the Hunter region and we congratulate all of the finalists and winners on the night.
