Assurance from Judges

“Winners, finalists and participants in the Indian Newslink Business Awards since its inception in 2008, will testify to the integrity and high level of confidentiality that this Programme entails. We are independent of Indian Newslink and no one from the company is a part of our panel of judges. All entries are received by me directly and every entry is evaluated by at least two judges. They also visit companies to discuss or verify statements made. The Indian Newslink Business Awards are among the most respected in the country and as judges we are proud to be associated with this Programme,” he said.

Mr Dawson said that as in the previous years, three Workshops will be held online on May 16, June 13 and July 11 (Tuesday) at 2 pm on Microsoft Teams.

“As well as discussing ‘How to file a good entry,’ we also discuss topics such as ‘Raising Capital for business growth,’ ‘The importance of a Business Plan’ and ‘Growth in challenging times.’ We encourage all entrants to attend our free workshops,” he said.

Professional assistance, independent of Indian Newslink and the Panel of Judges is available to entrants, who should negotiate terms and fees directly.
