2017 Quality Business Awards launch with a new look

Tamworth Business Chamber’s 2017 Quality Business Awards is set to benefit from the involvement of Tamworth Regional Council as major sponsor and a range of Awards changes, announced at the official launch of the Awards last night.

Tamworth Business Chamber President Jye Segboer said The 2017 Quality Business Awards is strengthened by the involvement of Tamworth Regional Council as major partner.

“We are thrilled to have Tamworth Regional Council on board as our major partner as well as a record number of sponsors for the 2017 Quality Business Awards. This highlights the diversity and commitment not only to Tamworth Business Chamber, but the local business community.”

Tamworth Region Mayor Col Murray welcomed this year’s change to the Awards process and Council’s involvement, saying it was a natural fit towards continued economic growth and development within the Tamworth region.

“Our ongoing support of the Chamber is due to the great work they do to ensure local businesses have a support network that allows them to remain vibrant and dynamic.  We believe the Awards also provide support to our retail sector which in turn plays an important role in the Region’s economy by preventing the leakage of money out of the area.

As a former business owner, I believe the Awards are a fantastic benchmarking tool and I encourage local business to get onboard. It’s a tremendous opportunity to take a step back and look at what you’ve achieved throughout the year, and it can also assist in business planning for the new financial year”
