Recognizing and celebrating the contributions of BC’s best small businesses

Winners of the 9th annual Successful You Awards were announced last night at an event at the Pan Pacific Hotel in Vancouver. There were about 400 people from the BC business community with former Vancouver Canuck Trevor Linden as keynote speaker. He gave a thoroughly entertaining speech about how much things had changed from 1988 when he started to 2008 when he retired. He has since become an entrepreneur with a successful development company with his brother and has started his Club 16 Trevor Linden fitness studios with a new one launching this month at the Vancouver Convention Centre. He admitted that this is his “freak out month.”

The formal part of the event was when Small Business BC recognized the achievements of 30 finalists (1 winner was chosen out of 5 finalists in 6 categories).

Above: All the top 5 finalists and award winners.

This year’s winners were:
Best Company: Williams and White
Best Concept: EightSix Network
Best Employer: Eclipse Awards
Best Green Business: Pemberton Valley Lodge
Best Online Marketer: Masc
Best Community Impact: Kids Physio Group

As a judge, I had the opportunity to review the applications for the Best Company category and watched the pitches of the five finalist companies. I was impressed by the innovation, dedication and passion each of the CEO’s had for their companies.

Congratulations to all the winners and finalists for their success.

Over 1 million people are employed by small businesses in British Columbia and 98% of all businesses in BC are considered Small Businesses (defined as 50 employees or less).
