Celebrations were in full force last night at the Westpac Auckland Business Awards, which were held at the beautiful Langham Hotel.
USANA New Zealand was nominated as one of the top 4 businesses in central Auckland for the Excellence in Marketing award. This being the case, the whole team glammed up and stepped put to represent USANA at the event.
Our award category was last but whilst waiting, we enjoyed the evening which was led by MC Frankie Stevens.
Frankie opened the Awards with the national anthem and introduced the main sponsors of the evening. We then tucked into the entree of mini quiches and salad which was paired with the Villa Maria Pinot Gris.
The awards then officially began with the following being announced:
Best Emerging Business sponsored by Spark Business: Pure SEO Limited
Excellence in Strategy and Planning sponsored by RSM Prince: Apex Ceilings Limited
Excellence in Business Leadership sponsored by Marsh Terry Scott: Transdev Auckland Limited
Excellence in Innovation sponsored by OfficeMax: My Food Bag
Mains were then served and were a choice of Chicken breast on cabbage with a cream sauce and baby carrots or a fillet steak on a tomato risotto with broccoli, and were again paired with Villa Maria wines. Delish!
The next set of awards was then announced, as follows:
Excellence in Customer Service Delivery sponsored by Fletcher Building: Out Source IT Limited
Excellence in Exporting sponsored by Ports of Auckland: Agility CIS Limited
Excellence in Marketing sponsored by Soar Printing Auckland: Adventure Jet
We were very impressed with our promo video which was showen on the big screen and can be viewed here – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yzvz-t9IizE&feature=youtu.be
This was then followed by the overall winner of the Supreme Business Excellence Award being announced as: Agility CIS Limited
Although USANA New Zealand wasn’t crowned with the much anticipated title of ‘Excellence in Marketing’, we were over the moon to be in the top 4 out of hundreds of entrees and will be back and better than ever at next year’s awards!
