If you know of a small business doing great things, then take note of the 567 CapeTalk Small Business Awards. Listeners have the opportunity to nominate businesses that are going the extra mile when it comes to quality of service and their customer experience. It’s the fourth edition of the competition which is brought to you by 567 CapeTalk Radio and Softline Pastel.


Businesses which show the most potential will be chosen from the nominations and will then go through to the interview round. This is where the business is featured and interviewed on 567 CapeTalk on either the morning or afternoon drive show. The interview round starts on 15 August 2011 but listeners can continue nominating small businesses right through until 2 September 2011.

The top three finalists will be chosen by a panel of judges and the final results will be announced at an awards ceremony on 8 September 2011. The overall winner will receive a laptop with Softline Pastel software, a Pastel training course or seminar of their choice, as well as an airtime contract to the value of R100,000 on 567 CapeTalk. The two runners up will each receive a Pastel Small Business Starter Pack, a Pastel training course or seminar of their choice, as well as a R50,000 airtime contract from 567 CapeTalk.

The 567 CapeTalk Small Business Awards have grown significantly in the last three years, with thousands of nominations coming in from listeners. Finalists from previous competitions have said that being short-listed and interviewed on 567 CapeTalk has been fantastic for their business.

If you have a small business in mind, then get that nomination in. Who knows, they might just be the winner in 2011. For more information or to nominate a small business, please visit www.capetalk.co.za.
