  • Congratulations to the winners of the Te Puke Business Excellence Awards

    Congratulations to the winners of the Te Puke Business Excellence Awards the annual awards run by Te Puke EDG to foster business development and growth in the Te Puke Area.

    As Supreme Sponsor for the ninth year running, we’re thrilled to see such a high standard from nominees and to play a part in recognising and celebrating the achievement of the winners.

    As a sponsor the awards are a natural fit for Bennetts Proactive as there are strong parallels between the role the awards play in the community, and the role that we play for our clients. It’s all about helping local businesses to build on their strengths, while also helping them to identify opportunities for growth and development. It’s great to be able to use our skills to give back to the community.

    The awards are judged over six categories:

    Guests at the awards function, held at Kiwi 360 on Friday 2 October, enjoyed dinner and an address by Kiwi racing legend Greg Murphy. Greg was selected as the key-note speaker for the evening because he’s living proof of what can be achieved if you aim high and stick to your goals. The clarity of vision and determination that have paid off for Murph are exactly the same values that the Te Puke Business Excellence Awards seek to foster to drive business growth and development.
