Nova Scotia (August 16, 2018) – The Nova Scotia Business Hall of Fame is seeking nominations for its next round of members to be inducted for 2019. The new Laureates for the Nova Scotia Business Hall of Fame will be formally inducted at a gala event in spring 2019, at the Halifax Convention Centre.
Laureates hail from different walks of life and diversity is encouraged. Some are entrepreneurs who have built a business from the ground up. Some are executive leaders who have led businesses to new heights through innovation, growth and transformation. And some are the next generation leaders of family business, who have grown a business beyond its original potential. Laureates have demonstrated extraordinary business success, superior leadership values, a commitment to giving back to community and a legacy of achievement in business and philanthropy to celebrate. Posthumous nominations are also welcomed.
“The selection of new Laureates for the Nova Scotia Business Hall of Fame is always extremely difficult, and we want to make sure that Laureates are of the highest calibre, and reflect the great diversity of our province,” said Kristin Williams, chief executive officer of Junior Achievement Nova Scotia, whose work helping young people is supported by the proceeds of the Nova Scotia Business Hall of Fame.
The Nova Scotia Business Hall of Fame is seeking new nominations with a deadline of November 15, 2018. To review the criteria and submit a nomination, please visit www.nsbusinesshalloffame.ca and complete the nomination form.
Once nominations are received they are reviewed and evaluated by two independent committees: a nominating committee shortlists potential candidates, and a judging committee makes the final selections.
The Nova Scotia Business Hall of Fame is stewarded by Junior Achievement of Nova Scotia, a registered charity with a mission to inspire and prepare youth to succeed in the global economy.
