THE Powercor Australia Bendigo Business Excellence Awards give businesses the chance to sparkle, says last year's major winner.
Kosmac and Clemens Optometrists was named business of the year after winning the professional category at the awards presentation last year.
Director Arthur Stevens said it was an honour to win the award and the business was proud to be recognised for excellence in service.
He said it was a testament to the company's dedication to providing high quality care and products to its clients.
"For small businesses, award contests cannot only be a great source of credibility to partners, clients and investors, they can also be a big motivator internally," he said.
"I would actively encourage all small businesses to submit nominations for this year's Bendigo Business Excellence Awards."
