Held at the end of a year marked by geopolitical tensions, the event emphasized that there is no single set of criteria defining excellence for business, sport, culture or non-profit performance, but it is always based on strong commitment and determination to always be better. And all our winners have proven exactly that.Business Arena has announced the winners of its 2022 Awards for Excellence at a special sit-down gala dinner.
As always, Business Arena is proud to recognize the achievements and successes of organizations and individuals in business, sport, culture and volunteering.
Experts say that unlike success, excellence is a relative notion. It is about maximizing personal and organizational potential. If the highest selling salesperson could have sold more, they have not fulfilled their sales potential. Therefore, excellence is about fulfilling potential rather than meeting a number or winning a contest.
Overall, experts argue that instilling the right culture into organizations is very important to success. But they also point out that creating the culture of excellence starts with each one of us, so people should make the changes they want to see within themselves first and the rest will naturally follow.
This awards gala would not have been possible without the ongoing support of the business community and our partners. On this note, Business Arena would like to take the opportunity and thank its partners: First Bank, CEC Bank, Apulum Porcelain Factory, World Class Romania, Via Viticola, Aur’a Mineral Water, Kanal D, Trends by Adina Buzatu, The Brandoers, Irena Events, Events by Tonyo. This special event was moderated by Andy Alexandru Antemia.
