Looking for a chance to acknowledge exceptional service from
someone in a Canterbury business?
As well as telling others about it, here's your chance to have
that person honoured publicly.
Christchurch Airport is one of the sponsors of the Canterbury
Business Hero Awards and is keen to hear from you about someone who
went the extra mile for you.
Airport Chief Executive Malcolm Johns says the awards salute
individuals who give exceptional customer service.
"Cantabrians in business who give outstanding customer service
are stars who deserve public acknowledgement. With your input, we
and the Master Builders Federation do this through the Canterbury
Business Hero Awards, so I invite you to nominate people who go out
of their way to serve you."
Every month someone nominated by a happy customer is selected by
Mr Johns as a business hero and named and famed on The Breeze, in
the Christchurch Mail and by the Hanmer Springs Thermal Pools and
"As a business, we get a kick out of providing head-turning
service. Equally we are keen to hear of others who provide it in
other businesses. It might be a plumber, chemist, mechanic, shop
assistant, waiter, in fact anyone who delivers service to help
Mr Johns says many award recipients are surprised and even
embarrassed to receive the honour, but says that is a mark of
someone who really sees outstanding service as a way of life.
"The recipients I have had the privilege of handing awards to
are great people doing great work every day. I find it very
rewarding to publicly respect the work they do so well and the
positive impact their service has on their customers. They really
are Business Heroes."
