Fremantle Business Wins

There are three significant days in the delivery of the Fremantle Business Awards. The first is the closing date for submissions – across the day the nominees stream in – slightly harried, nervous in anticipation. The second is the closing date for judging. 18 judges representing sponsors and the business community have had two weeks to read, consider and compare. They too stream in to return submissions and scoring sheets – slightly harried but relieved it is done.

The Fremantle Business Awards have always celebrated a multifaceted business community and 2016 is no different. There are businesses that we walk past every day, others that reach out beyond the Fremantle region, and some that reach in to deliver significant services.

Businesses new to the mix include Venta Belgarum Associates, an Ardross based boutique tax, and business advisory service that works across the Fremantle region; documentary maker, Prospero Productions; Photography Project, Growers Green Farmers Market, Fremantle Ports Maritime Day, Common Ground , The Artisan Store Fremantle, Kate & Abel and DADAA.

The nominees for the Outstanding Personal Achievement reads like your average adventurous day out in Fremantle. Having competed and used your Fast Rescue Boat Training (Mark Small, IFAP), your story becomes a show (Philip Mitchell, Spare Parts Puppet Theatre), for which there is an after party (Karl Bullers, The National Hotel Fremantle), the aftermath of which is mopped up by either of two of our local medical leaders ((Dr Jonathan Dalitz, Melville Family Health Centre) and (Dr Catherine Douglass (Ellen Health)). Congratulations to you all.

So it is all done bar the celebration – the third significant day. To find out who will win the BankWest Business of the Year, join us on Friday 10 June at the Southern Cross Ballroom at The Esplanade Hotel Fremantle – by Rydges.
