The 29th annual Belmont & Western Australian Small Business Awards officially launched at Empire Bar in Lathlain on the 25th of May 2022. The Belmont & Western Australian Small Business Awards coordinated by the Belmont Business Enterprise Centre Inc. (Belmont BEC) and supported by major sponsors City of Belmont and the Textile Clothing Footwear Resource Centre of WA (TCFWA).
With one in five businesses (18 per cent) not having sufficient staff in April 2022 (source https://www.abs.gov.au/statistics/economy/business-indicators/business-conditions-and-sentiments/latest-release), the Awards are a great way for small businesses to highlight themselves, retain team members and attract new staff.
The Awards provide recognition and encouragement for small business achievements and are open for small businesses, individuals and organisations in Belmont, Perth metropolitan area and across regional Western Australia.
TCF WA Board member Margaret Rushe Farrell said “We are excited and proud to sponsor the Karl Farrell Inspiration Award once again this year. This award is presented to a Western Australian business who has recognised challenges and overcome them during their business life. The award is named in memory of Karl Farrell an inspirational past Chair of TCF WA.”
Established in Belmont in 1998, the TCFWA not-for-profit association has been so successful, that it now receives requests from across Australia and overseas. TCFWA provides specialised fashion business skills, mentoring and supply chain sourcing on and offshore and has been recognised as a leader and role model organisation.
Nominating small businesses can be located anywhere in Western Australia and potential entrants will be able to access a wide range of support in preparing their submission that includes Free Award Entry Submission Kits including Free Webinars, Workshops, and access to Award Mentors who can assist with tips in preparing award submissions to impress the judging panel.
Winners will be announced at the ‘Night of Stars’ event that will take place in the Ballroom of the Perth Exhibition and Convention Centre on Wednesday 26th October 2022.
