At a time when business confidence is at its lowest, People’s Choice Awards want to reestablish this confidence. People’s Choice Awards’ mission is to support and uplift all Mauritian businesses.

How did the idea of creating the People’s Choice contest come about?

Members Business Network (Mauritius) is a membership driven organization that creates platforms for its members to expose themselves, increasing both visibility and credibility. We felt that the People’s Choice Awards would be an ideal additional platform for us to offer and to extend beyond our membership to generate excitement within the business community. Especially at a time when business confidence is low, it’s an opportunity for Mauritius to support and uplift all businesses on the island. It is open to all Mauritian registered businesses and the public are invited to participate to find out where some of the hidden gems in business can be found.

Which companies are concerned by this award?

We are encouraging ALL businesses registered in Mauritius to participate, large and small, start up or established. It is therefore free to enter and free to vote. There are no registrations necessary in that process. The idea is to engage all businesses in Mauritius, to create a positive space to allow them visibility and recognition.

The 65 categories are split into sectors ranging from Property, Media, Finance, Health/ Wellness, Food, Hospitality, Retail, Manufacture, ICT, Business to Training/Education. Through the support of the concept by Dean Pitot, Karen Thornalley (PropertyFinder), Derry Thornalley and his team at Gravitas Finance LLB, Trevor Clark (ActionCOACH) and Jo Quinn (Digital Forte) we have been able to make this award a reality and look forward to announcing the people’s favorites on the island.

Who are the people who will vote?

The public is invited to nominate their favorite businesses, suppliers, contractors, stores and even their favorite street food seller. There are 65 categories in total. Voting begins from Friday 1 October and runs until 14 November (6 weeks). Hop onto https:// peopleschoice.mu to show your appreciation.

At now, how much participations have you received?

Having opened nominations just over a week ago, we are thrilled to have over 500 nominations ranging from solo-preneurs to corporates.

When and where will the big award ceremony take place?

November is MBN (Mauritius)’s 3rd birthday and so it’s even more auspicious to be able to announce the People’s Choice awards on 30th at Goldcrest Hotel in Quatre Bornes. It will be a private function, but will be recorded and published on our Facebook pages: https://www.facebook. com/PeoplesChoice.MU and https://www.facebook.com/MauritiusBusinessNetwork

Will there be future editions?

We hope to make this an annual event on the island, something to excite businesses every year, and to ensure they are fore of mind for their customers.
