Nicholas Collins won a Young Business Achiever Award, for his outstanding efforts at Electromold where he is working in nickel plating, as an apprentice. The CEO of the Committee for Melbourne, Sally Capp, spoke on “Shaping Melbourne’s Future Growth” with a key message on decentralising employment out of central Melbourne into regions such as the northern suburbs, to improve the whole city’s functioning and sustainability.

The NBAA’s exist to acknowledge and celebrate the successes and achievements of small to medium sized enterprises within Melbourne’s north. Another food sector business was nominated in March, Chocolatier, whose production site is in West Heidelberg.

The winner will be announced at a breakfast on 3 December, to be hosted by The City of Yarra.
