RPP FM local radio has announced it is the OFFICIAL BROADCAST MEDIA PARTNER for the upcoming Frankston & Mornington Peninsula Excellence in Business Awards 2014 and proud of it!

Together with Jacki Mitchell, producer and presenter of the award winning business program Taking Care of Business which goes ‘live to air’ every Friday at 11am from the RPP FM studios in Mornington, and the Excellence in Business Awards 2014 organisers, recognized that a partnership with the local radio station would be an ideal alliance to support businesses that excel in their industry.

The combined effort of RPP FM, Frankston City Council and the Mornington Peninsula Shire will help support and promote businesses that strive for excellence, implement innovative processes and hold a track record of good corporate citizenship and community involvement.

Sequentially, this will offer business owners and operators the opportunity to gain recognition, create opportunities to further grow and develop their business and build networks with other entrepreneurial businesses.

As Jacki would rightly say about the formation of the partnership, “It’s a no-brainer”.

The Excellence in Business Awards represents the highest honour that any business can receive in the Frankston City and Mornington Peninsula region.

The overall winner has the opportunity to co-host Taking Care of Business with Jacki which attracts a listening audience of over 160,000 all around Australia and overseas.
