The Service IQ Great Lake Taupō Business Awards are held every second year, and are designed to enhance business performance and celebrate business excellence across the Taupo District.

The ServiceIQ Great Lake Taupō Business Awards 2017 celebrated the dawn of a new era in Business Excellence. 

Delivered by the Taupō Business Chamber, the Business Awards programme saw entrants attend a series of workshops before submitting a comprehensive written application that was then judged by the Waikato Management School At Waikato University. Once the finalists had been selected for each category, these businesses were then visited by Head Judge, Howard Davey, as well as being mystery shopped. The combined scores from these three aspects were used to identify the winners. The scores have allowed the Taupō Business Chamber to identify areas where we need to improve and will help us build our training and events calendar for the future.
