CapeTalk Small Business Awards

The 2015 edition of the Small Business Awards with Sage One has been launched. 702Landers are invited to reward great service from small businesses by nominating them for the 2015 Small Business Awards with Sage One.

One of the judges at this year's awards is Pat Pillai, CEO of LifeCo Unlimited.

To emphasise his point he even quoted Raymond Ackerman's famous line...

"Doing good is good business!"
