Social enterprise is done just because it’s right and BUSINESS buddy’s community-mindedness has created lots of warm fuzzies and motivation for the team.

Global recognition for BUSINESS buddy

BUSINESS buddy celebrated with numerous global contributors when it was announced runner-up in the international B1G1 Connection Award.

“We received the award at the Buy One, Give One, (B1G1), Business for Good Conference, held in Singapore and we seriously have the feel-good factor going on in our office.

“Although I knew we had been nominated, it was still a huge surprise and honour to be placed so highly,” says BUSINESS buddy head honcho Kirsten Hawke.

“We were one of ten nominees and many of the businesses were much larger than ours.

“The overall winner was world renowned futurist and social entrepreneur, Roger Hamilton, so we were in great company.”

The BIG1 Connection Award recognises companies who go over and above to incorporate giving activities into everyday business operations.

As a member of B1G1, BUSINESS buddy links client savings and results to multiple projects around the world.

Some of the projects BUSINESS buddy has supported include supplying clean water in developing countries and 100 days of learning materials to vulnerable children.

“The highlight of the conference was not only winning the award but meeting amazing entrepreneurs from all around the world, all doing business for good.

“By using small to medium enterprises (SMEs) as a real force for good, we can create more of a legacy for your business,” says Kirsten.

 Through the simple act of giving, BUSINESS buddy is making life better for their clients, their businesses and vulnerable people all over the world.
