The Value of Awards
Shirley MacLaine, in her 1983 Academy Awards Oscar acceptance speech said,
“Films and life are like clay, waiting for us to mould it. God bless that potential that we all have for making anything possible if we think we deserve it”.
An Oscar win or nomination brings not only recognition of the highest accolade for acting talent, but a solid future of movie contracts and larger earnings. These consequences can equally be applied to business awards. CEO’s and companies of all sizes today face the challenges of an increasingly competitive global economy. Many companies know that the recognition they deservedly obtain for their current achievements will help drive their future success. Business Awards have the benefits of increased awareness, third-party validation and establishing market leadership.
