Illawarra Women in Business Awards entries close soon

Applications for the 2018 IWIB Business Women's Awards close in two weeks.

April 27 is the final cut off date this year with the awards set down for June 11 at City Beach Function Centre.

Illawarra Women In Business director Glenda Papac said entering the awards was a great opportunity for personal development of business owners and managers as well as employees. And was a good way to self analyse a business and build its reputation and awareness.

The categories are Business Women of the Year, Young Business Women of the Year, Best Business, Best Small Business, Best Home Based Business, Best New Business, Innovative Businesswoman, Customer Focus and Outstanding Commitment to the Community.
