              FAQ’S

              I am so pleased that you asked this question! The answer is definitely YES! This is a global initiative. All questions are in English. However, you can apply in the language you’re a Changemaker in. You can have a look at the application form here to see what type of questions are asked. We really encourage you to jump over the hurdle of language – in today’s world with Google Translate, friends, family and translation agencies, you really should let nothing stand in your way of showing the world just what an AWESOME Changemaker you are! Shine!

              It’s best to enter with the intention to win. Should this not be the case, then we’d love for you to think about this: By attending the event, despite not being a finalist, you will stand the chance of winning one of the prizes that will benefit you and your business. In addition to that, you will have the opportunity to mingle with other Changemakers and network. That is, build your Rolodex because Changemakers connect and monetize their network.

              This is the hometown of the DO GOOD NOW GLOBAL Founder: Ulrika Lorenz and of course IKEA … and not only are Swedes the friendliest people on earth (alongside South Africa), but it’s a GREAT destination to tick off your bucket list!

              No problem! You can either gift someone you love the other day to attend or donate the monies to the EMPOWER-OVER-PITY Campaign. There are no refunds!

              That’s a great question! I’m sure you know that as an entrepreneur, it’s important to reach a financial goal. And our goal is to raise EURO 200.000,- to build the Bed & Breakfast and Retreat House in Nepal.

              That means, we need to raise that sum of money and on top of that the costs for marketing. That is the hotel, food, speakers, judges, organisation, advertising, and more … that part isn’t free and we don’t expect it to be as we believe in value-exchange. However, those costs need to be taken into consideration too.

              And when you add it all up … well, this is the cost we charge you. Pretty simple equation. And yet, you not only get recognised as the incredible Changemaker that you are BUT you also Empower the women and girls rescued from sex and human trafficking.

              Win-win right!?

              • Networking
              • Lunch
              • Dinner
              • Drinks
              • Entertainment with top DJ’s, singers, songwriters
              • Extraordinary Changemaker Speakers and Judges
              • The chance to win some phenomenal prizes!

              But the most important reason of all is that you’re supporting the EMPOWER-OVER-PITY Campaign.

              Changemakers Global Unite starts its inaugural first year, for the Global Business Awards 2019. Created to reward the organisations, teams and individuals who are creating the future of business as Global Changemakers. The CGU is a vehicle for sharing best practice and enables the organisations who enter to promote professional improvement, learning, and personal development. To win or be shortlisted at the CGU is a great honour that identifies you as superior in your industry.

              The awards trophies are a symbol for not only your phenomenal Changemaker difference in the world but indirectly a symbol to the girls and women being rescued from sex and human trafficking, that they can be and do anything they want to, all it takes is empowerment, no pity and a strong supportive community around the world – which is what these Awards support through your participation and exposure.

              SME or Multi-National?

              The awards encompass both B2B and B2C categories in a sector and discipline-specific areas to allow every size of business to be recognised for their achievements. The judges will identify excellence and innovation no matter the size of the organisation and we have found SMEs and large corporations fair equally well in front of the panels of independent judges at the awards finals.

              Who can enter the CGU?

              We welcome entries from all Changemaker businesses, organisations and individuals who are committed to providing exceptional business performance and innovation; whether that is for your customers, partners, suppliers or employees. The awards showcase your business skills, expertise, depth of experience, and enviable talent to your clients and investors while rewarding staff and measuring your success against your competitors.

              What Kinds of Initiatives Can Enter?

              The age of automation is upon us. The judges want to hear from those striving to surpass customer needs and/or are delivering outstanding business performance in their area. The awards aim to celebrate diverse cross-sector enterprises by bringing together in one place, and in one day, the leading examples of great business practice. From the best place to work to innovation and social enterprise, we welcome examples of all initiatives in business and industry.
