Meet the Judges
Meet the Judges
The Datacom Hawke’s Bay Business Awards is an opportunity for businesses to focus on their business structure, their markets, their channels to market, their digital strategy, their strategic relationships, and their staffing development for a prosperous future.
The process for the awards is only practical and possible with the support of business leaders from a range of industries.
We are pleased to have a strong panel of judges this year, from academia to business management, overseeing the awards for 2023 not only to identify the business leaders but to provide feedback to entrants for the positive development of their business.
We are grateful to Vicki Lawson, partner at PwC Hawke’s Bay as the convenor of judges.
Meet the Judges who will be bringing their industry knowledge and category-specific skill sets to assess this year’s Awards Finalists.
