What we love about this award is that anyone can win and we have no idea what to expect each year. What we do know i that there are some amazing innovators and entrepreneurs on our industry. We're looking for someone who really thinks outside the box. It might be the way that staff are incentivised, processes used, marketing programmes to name a couple of examples – the judges are ready to be dazzled. Two of our winners have developed programmes to benefit other business but we are open to any kind of innovative process or initiative.
What do I have to do to be considered?
Nominees will outline in a Survey Monkey form what they believe makes their business an innovation leader. Nomination close 21 May.
The Innovation Award is proudly sponsored by Norton Saint-Gobain.
What happens if I win?
You will be flown to the Paint & Panel Bodyshop Awards dinner in Melbourne (corona virus restrictions allowing) to receive your award and be profiled in the the January issue of the magazine. As well as the physical award to display in your reception area, you will receive a winner's logo to display on your website and in your marketing material.
