Business owners can now sign up online; grow your business workshops on offer this year
Small to medium enterprises and executives from the Indian diaspora have been rapidly growing their networking base in the last five years and the Indian Executive Club (IEC) seems to have had everything to do with it. On 1 May, a milestone had arrived in 2015 when the IEC celebrated going into its fifth year for the Awards.
Over 60 of the Club’s closest associates and many of its members attended the 2015 IEC Awards launch night at Pitcher Partners. Vinay Sharma, Chairman of the IEC, paid tribute to the level of support and commitment from Pitcher Partners over the last four years. He narrated the story that unfolded with a leap of faith by Pitcher Partners in the year 2012.
“It would normally have taken a running track record of success for an organisation to offer support, but in 2012 Pitcher Partners took a leap of faith and backed us. They believed in what we were trying to achieve to uplift and recognise accomplishments within the Indian diaspora.” said Vinay Sharma, Chairman, IEC.
IEC had RohiniKappadath, Director, Cross Border Business for Pitcher Partners, and VijayaVaithyanath, CEO, City of Yarra, officially declare the fifth IEC Awards nominations open.
Being a milestone year for the IEC Awards, there were two special announcements at the launch event. RohiniKappadath threw light on the first of them in relation to the nomination process. In collaboration with the IEC Awards, Pitcher Partners will be inviting every nominee to four “grow your business” workshops the inaugural gathering will be on the 1st of June.
With this power packed nomination journey, the IEC Awards ushers in the milestone year with many an incentive for the Indian business owner in Australia. The second announcement was the launch of IEC’s brand new website, which allows business owners and executives to download and complete nomination forms online, make payments online, sign up for newsletters and more.
