Have you ever thought about the winning formula and what it might look like for your business? Perhaps you have thought about becoming more successful and gaining valuable exposure for what you are doing well? Three Lake Macquarie business leaders, including Amber Moncrieff of Hunter Plastic Surgery, Jennifer Holland of Throat Scope and Nathan Franks of Dynamic Business Technologies, came together at the Lake Macquarie Business Network breakfast this morning to discuss the topic The Winning Formula: Passion, Purpose and Persistence. Each of the business leaders shared their own secrets to success, discussing the importance of having a solid team, smart practices in place, taking control of change and making the most of the opportunities that come your way. It was not surprising to learn that these three business leaders are all driven by passion, and it is that passion that gives them purpose and the courage to be persistent.
The launch of the 2017 Lake Macquarie Business Excellence Awards also formed part of this morning’s line up. As the three speakers happen to be the Major Award Winners from the 2016 Lake Macquarie Business Excellence Awards, they were able to provide an insight into how their businesses benefited from not just the win, but from being named a finalist and from the entry process itself.
Amber Moncrieff, 2016 Lake Macquarie Business Person of the Year, explained to the audience that the Lake Macquarie Business Excellence Awards are a valuable experience for all business owners:
“The Lake Macquarie Business Excellence Awards are fantastic on many levels; there is a certain benefit to the focus and discipline required when it comes to writing the submission and presenting tangible achievements and the promotional opportunities that are available to those who become finalists and/or winners are endless. The Awards are also a great tool in building business credibility and solidifying external relationships. For Hunter Plastic Surgery, one of the most important and lasting benefits of the Awards has been the chance to connect with other local businesses that are just like us – focused, service driven and high-energy.”
As the organisers of the Lake Macquarie Business Excellence Awards, it was certainly pleasing to hear the varying levels of benefits that are available to those who enter and become a finalist or winner. And if we are talking about taking advantage of all the opportunities that are available in order to be successful; the Awards not only give businesses the opportunity to profile themselves and their achievements, but also the chance to reflect upon various business practices. The entry process alone can assist business owners with planning for a positive future and identifying areas of growth – this can be a win in itself.
So, if you are looking for the winning formula, perhaps you need to be looking for the opportunities that are available for you to share your passion, assess what it is you do well and promote your business. The Lake Macquarie Business Excellence Awards could become part of your winning formula in 2017, all you need to do is dedicate a bit of time to completing an entry.
