This years theme....Salute To Business
In celebration of the 75th Anniversary of CFB Suffield, the 2016 Business Awards theme was selected as a ‘Salute to Business’. For centuries, historians, teachers, political leaders and others have used military leadership as an example of what leaders can accomplish. Character, discipline and courage define this type of leadership and these same traits hold true for business. You need character and courage to take the risks in business to succeed and you need firm discipline to stay focused and on firm ground as you weather the ebb and flow of changing economies. Character sets you apart, discipline helps prepare for and predict what may be around the corner, but courage is what helps you handle the battles and challenges that put business ‘in a class by itself’.
