Here are the businesses who cleaned up at the Geelong Business Excellence Awards

James Murphy of See All Dolphin Swims

Congratulations to all.

The Geelong Business Excellence Awards recently went down via a virtual presentation on Thursday, October 15, celebrating some of the businesses, Young Entrepreneurs and Business Leaders in the Geelong region.

Each year the Geelong Business Excellence awards brings together some of the most creative, innovative and thriving businesses that have achieved business excellence in the Geelong region, along with a great number of dedicated local heroes who support Geelong and it’s tight-knit and loyal community – and what a community it is!

These Awards are the oldest continuously running business awards programs in Australia, and, as such, provide a significant recognition and celebration of business achievement and performance.

In case you missed the virtual event, we’ve listed the winners below – though we’d like to give a special shout out to all those who have taken the jump into owning or operating a business in the region.
