Entering yo’self into Award Programs

- August 1, 2011 < 1 MIN READ

Oh please put those judgmental eyebrows down, I know that you look at who wins the various Business Award programs around Australia. I know that you also keep tabs on the winners to see what they are doing. I have had emails from many startups out there just in the last few weeks asking about how to be nominated for our Young and Influential awards coming up in November…. ummm Nominate yourself guys, no one is going to blow your trumpet for you if you are just starting up so you need to be proactive and do a little self promotion.

Let’s face facts – Those that win the awards are the ones that you see in the media time and time again – their businesses are growing and the constantly have a unique story to tell – Jump on the bandwagon, get noticed, step forward and tell people who you are and what you do!
