Yesterday marked the end of Xerocon Auckland 2015. Last night we celebrated the success of our high achieving Xero Partners at the annual awards dinner.
I love the Xero Partner Awards. They allow us all to get together and celebrate the achievements of our valued partners from the Xero ecosystem over the past year. The awards also provide the perfect opportunity to highlight the work they are doing to enable small business success in New Zealand.
This year was a bumper year and it was so hard to choose the finalists and winners. There were some very hotly contested categories! We received more than 75 nominations across 10 categories in this year’s awards – a record number! Each category (except the MVP Award) was narrowed down to three finalists, from which a winner was chosen. The MVP Award is selected by Xero, and recognises an exceptional individual who has proved an invaluable partner to the Xero team during the past year.
Congratulations to all the winners and finalists for 2014
