This year’s event was held at the Logan Entertainment Centre on Friday June 28, 2019 and saw local businesses come together for the announcement of 19 industry awards plus six major awards, including Business of the Year.
Seasons Waterford West was announced as one of the 47 finalists ahead of the awards night, with more than 340 businesses nominated for an award.
Seasons Waterford West Community Manager Barbara Booth said the award came down to a team effort.
“Every one of our staff has played a part in us being recognised with this award – it’s such an amazing way to get our name out into the local community,” says Barbara.
“Getting recognised for the second year in a row was an honour and a great feeling.”
To be considered for the award, each nominee had to complete an online award application highlighting their general business overview, business development strategies, community and environmental contribution and demonstrate how their business stands out within their industry category.
“We were able to talk about some of our new community partnerships and fundraising efforts as well as our environmental initiatives that we’re focusing on this year. We also got to showcase our unique lifestyle activities and groups, such as the Wandering Gourmets, ukelele group and our pet therapy.
“We are proud of our connection with the local community and hope to continue to grow these networks throughout the year.”
Logan Country Chamber of Commerce Kerry Menck said this year’s Business Distinction Awards featured an increased number of nominations and more variety than previous years.
“We know from the winners last year that they either grew their businesses or got more exposure to grow their business further,” she said.
Attending the awards on behalf of Seasons Waterford West was Community Manager Barbara Booth, Community Consultant Bernadette Bradford and Lifestyle Coordinator Charmaine Lees.
