The outstanding success of businesses including world class product developers, digital innovators, plastic surgeons, trade and professional service providers, was celebrated at the Lake Macquarie Business Excellence Awards Gala Dinner, held at Belmont 16s on Saturday 22 July 2017.
Eight different businesses were announced as winners across 15 categories focusing on areas such as branding and marketing, business practices, digital technology, workplace culture, customer service, innovation, entrepreneurship and sustainability.
Three major award winners were also recognised for their business expertise, capacity to expand, their contribution to the Lake Macquarie Business Community and ability to give back to the general community. These were Ryan Bennett, Zimpleweb, who was awarded Young Business Person of the Year, Amber Moncrieff, Hunter Plastic Surgery, who was awarded Business Person of the Year and JettProof who took out top honours as Business of the Year.
