Secret judges visit business finalists

JUDGING of this year’s Inner West Local Business Awards finalists is underway.

It’s a disconcerting time for the hundreds of nominees, says Precedent Productions Managing Director and Awards founder Steve Loe.
“Our anonymous judges are now visiting the businesses that have made it through as finalists,” he said.
“That means any unfamiliar face that walks through the door could be there to assess their performance.”
Mr Loe said tallying the thousands of nominations and determining the finalists was always a huge task.
“Now the hard work of our judges is underway,” he said.
“Each year, they face the difficult task of visiting each finalist, where they look at their customer service, including greeting and customer acknowledgement, detailed product knowledge and value for money.
“They also consider other aspects of each business, including websites.”
The full list of finalists is available at
The awards presentation will be held on Wednesday, October 7, at Le Montage.
