Excellent chance to kick up heels
WITH the flexibility of a Parisian Can Can dancer's limbs, Warwick businesses will celebrate success at next month's Business Excellence Awards.
Flexibility, longevity and timing are three elements the Moulin Rouge and business can claim a common ground and the gala awards ceremony is set to tap into saucy fun to celebrate.
Heritage Building Society Warwick branch manager Donna Neale-Arnold said the contagious excitement of sharing success had drawn her to bring out the feather-boa.
“We're so proud to be involved in this even which celebrates community success,” she said.
“Our ethos is people first and community. The applications are pouring in so it's indication of how anticipated this event is.”
Ms Neale-Arnold, who is also on the Business Excellence Awards committee, said entrants would not only celebrate their achievements but also benefit from shared wisdom of all who put forward their nominations.
“The Awards not only recognise excellence but also provide a valuable learning experience. For many businesses, taking part in the process and being judged against their peers can help identify areas of improvement and help them be the best they can be.”
The theme for the 2010 Business Excellence Awards is Celebrate Success, and the Warwick Chamber of Commerce together with the Building Heritage Society, Warwick Daily News, 4WK and Warwick RSL Memorial Club are eagerly anticipating more nominations as applications close on May 28.
There are six categories sponsored by Southern Downs Industry Education Association, Campbell Page, Rose City Shoppingworld, IGA, MBC Constructions and Black Toyota.
Business Excellence Awards committee chair Daniel Spry said the vibrancy and colour of the Moulin Rouge successfully reflected the esteem of Warwick businesses.
“We've sold about 100 tickets and it looks like being a sell-out,” Mr Spry said.
“This event has previously been a tremendous success, and this year's entertainment will feature five Moulin Rouge dancers who will dance the famous Can Can.
“There's awards, dancing, entertainment, music and food. Dress is formal and fancy but there's no pressure as it's a fun-filled evening”
