Celebrating Business in the South West

2021 South West Business Excellence Awards Results

This year has been another successful year for the Awards with 41 businesses submitting applications across all categories, including 8 Star Business Person of the Year and 5 Employee of the Year applications.

Over 200 guests and 34 Award Finalists came together on 30 October to celebrate their success at the South West Business Excellence Awards on presented by BSW Connect, and what a fitting date with the celebrations coinciding with WA Small Business Day.

In its 27th year, the longevity of these regional awards is a testament to its value and the importance of recognising, rewarding and celebrating the incredible businesses and business leaders in the South West.

BSW Connect Business Awards Coordinator, Dr Robyn Morris, said ‘we unquestionably have many absolute gems in our region’ and that the judging panel had ‘an unenviable task in selecting the winners for each category’.

On the night 15 finalists from across the region walked away with a trophy, with some mullti-award winners.
