Tips for your your LMBA nomination

Winning a Lord Mayor’s Business Award all starts with crafting a compelling, inspiring nomination. The judges want to see the best bits of your business shine, both on paper and in person if you are selected as a finalist. 

To help you take your nomination to the next level, five of our judges have listed the top tips you need to know to boost your chances of going home with an award.  

Llew Jury
Managing Director, Reload Media

"Treat your nomination like a Shark Tank business pitch. Make sure you know your financials, your point of difference and the business impact you've made and plan to make."

Llew is a past winner of the 2012 Young Business Person of the Year Award.

Jeremy White
State Manager, Queensland, Commercial Banking, HSBC Bank Australia Limited

“If you do become one of the finalists, then use your presentation in the judges’ interview to impress, and make sure it has that ‘wow’ factor.”

Stephen Tait
Chief Executive Officer, CCIQ

“Take out the acronyms, show evidence, don’t make assumptions, don’t exceed the word limit and make sure that you have answered the question!”

Chris McCluskey
General Manager, Development Services, ISPT

“Peer reviews are essential to success. Get someone from outside your organisation to read through your nomination to ensure that it makes sense. You know your organisation inside out, but the judges don’t!”

Penny Flynn
Executive Director, BDO

“LMBA is a great way to showcase your business but make sure that the category you are entering is the right one for you.”
